Stream Picks: The Sagebrush Show

By: Laurie Gallardo

So, the setting is very classic Tonight Show. Speaking of which, today’s Austin Music Minute spotlight presentation doesn’t have to be viewed at night. It’s for anytime, like over morning coffee, lunchtime nibbles, or freaked out on the couch because really, what the hell does “time” mean these days and does it matter?!

Okay. Deep breaths.

And now, ladies and gents, it’s The Sagebrush Show, curated by your AMM host’s good buddy and fellow music lover Denis O’Donnell, esteemed proprietor of some ATX hot spots you know and love (The White Horse, and former Eastside dive Hard Luck Lounge). Following the Hard Luck Lounge’s recent closing, O’Donnell turned his attention and applied all blood, sweat and tears to a brand new South Austin venue and hang, Sagebrush. Obviously, due to current circumstances, they can’t open the doors anytime soon, so O’Donnell thought: Why not bring the music to folks via the internet? 

These are solo sets filmed (with strict social distancing protocol set in place) at the new venue, and include a lovely chat with each artist (at least 6 feet apart between host and guest). So far, the roster includes ATX peeps Selena Rosanbalm, Corey Baum, Jordan Matthew Young, Blake Van Buren, and AMM-featured artist Candler Wilkinson, and each video has info on how you can send monetary tips their way through Venmo, PayPal or both. Check it out now on YouTube.
