Who: I first had the pleasure of seeing the mad skills of Jonathan Doyle through previous performances with the White Ghost Shivers. You’ve heard your Austin Music Minute host brag about his musical talent before. The Austin-based clarinetist, saxophonist, composer and arranger spent quite a bit of time in New Orleans and Chicago, but moved here in 2004 to focus more on roots music and acoustic styles.
What: Usually, Doyle rocks the clarinet in the Jonathan Doyle Swingtet, but tonight he’s switching to alto saxophone, in addition to showcasing some new arrangements, at a show this evening.

Who: Austin-based quartet The Deer
What: They just released the first single, “Do Return” (featured on today’s Austin Music Minute) from their forthcoming album, Tempest and Rapture, along with a lovely new stop-motion video created by songwriter and vocalist Grace Park, all in anticipation of their big show with KUTX’s November artist of the month, Wild Child.
When and where: See Wild Child and The Deer perform tonight at Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater, 801 Red River. Doors at 7 p.m. Following the show on Stubb’s inside stage is a set by Daniel Eyes and The Vibes at 10:30 p.m. Excellent all around. Recommended.

Who: Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jonas Wilson is on a roll.
What: Wilson recently digitally released his single “The Bleeder” (featured on today’s Austin Music Minute), one of 12 new tracks coming out next year on a new album. To celebrate, Wilson is performing the new tunes at a record release show, part of an awesome post-Thanksgiving (Spanksgiving, to be exact) party with a fantastic bill.

What: It’s a perfect double bill just before the holiday.
When and where: See Löwin and Greys perform tonight at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, on the inside stage. Doors at 9 p.m. And remember, do not leave the earplugs at home.

Who: Bluegrass/trashgrass/drunkgrass hoodlums Clyde & Clem’s Whiskey Business
What: These fellas figured a grand Thanksgiving Eve shindig was in order, and it’s at the perfect spot. Welcome to their very own Holiday Hangover.
When and where: Check out Clyde & Clem’s Whiskey Business tomorrow night at Stay Gold, 1910 E. Cesar Chavez. They’ll be joined by friends Junkyard Mongrels, Candler Wilkinson, and Christopher Rhoades. Will you be able to keep up with the madness? Recommended.
