Ila Minori [Traveling With Ghosts] – 7:00pm @ Townsend

San Antonio songwriter Ila Minori is performing a special acoustic set with her Austin trio and it is the formal release of her debut album “Traveling with Ghosts.” Written largely during a sojourn in Italy, these songs speak of broken relationships and lost hope and the light in the faraway window.

Wild Bill Ogden [Fighting For The Title] – 10:00pm @ ABGB

 It’s called “Fighting for the Title”, and was produced by Kris Wade and myself. We had a lot of fun experimenting with and creating our own samples while sticking with the integrity of the songs, and we are REALLY happy with the results. So happy we are pressing it to vinyl! The artwork (thanks to Dave Creany for the photos and Luke Litman for the cover art and desgin) was inspired by the classic 1987 NES game, Mike Tyson’s Punch Out, and the vinyl is designed to look like a cartridge. You will hear classic NES sounds on the record, and soon we will release some videos also inspired by the NES days of the 1980s. I can safely say is this the most ambitious project I’ve worked on yet. I’m very proud of it, and I hope you will run and tell all your friends and strangers to buy one. Once they are gone they are GONE.

 Wes Paul [Awakening] – 7:30pm @ Music Lab St. Elmo

The debut EP from Gainesville, Florida-born Wes Paul –  who moved Austin in 2008. “It’s so cool to be living in a city where some of my biggest influences are not the huge mega-stars like the Rolling Stones, Beatles, or Lady Gaga,” he says jokingly “but rather watching the diversity of amazing local artists like Gary Clark Jr., Bob Schneider, Monte Montgomery, Alpha Rev, Ephraim Owens, Redd Volkaert, Brannen Temple, …the list goes on. On any given day of the week when I’m not doing my own thing there is some musical inspiration to be found at one of the many venues in town that host live bands. I’m glad to be a  part of it.”

These Fine Moments [Break It, Bought It] – 4:00pm @ One-2-One Bar

These Fine Moments are Hilary Kaufmann and Robert Watts, an Austin, Texas based duo with an honest blend of folk, pop and depression that borrows from  ‘70s pop/rock (a la Fleetwood Mac, Hollies, Beatles) and American indie (Jayhawks, Decemberists, Shovels & Rope).

Their songs convey rich imagery and weave stories and situations of joy and pain, love and loss, and wanting and wanting not, delivered with strong co-vocals and parallel harmonies.
