Another Golden Monday

Austin Music Minute

Another Golden Monday

Posted by on Oct 26, 2015

Who: Songwriter Ben Ballinger continues to blow audiences away with astounding insight and emotional depth in his work. The State I’m In offers a glimpse into the soul of a truth-seeker not holding back, in heartbreak and triumph. Then, there is the swirling, harmonic dream pop Star Parks, immersing the listener in ’60s-influenced atmospheric melodies directly from the starry sky. Their full-length album, Don’t Dwell, due for release early next year.

What: What unites these two distinctive musical styles? It’s the equation for another show that will kick those Monday blahs to the curb.

When and where: Starting at 9 p.m. tonight at Stay Gold, 1910 E. Cesar Chavez. Get there early for a lovely set by the one and only Ethan Azarian at 6:30 p.m. Recommended all around.
