Have you heard? He’s getting the band back together.
After saying that, it’s kind of hard not to summon an image of Belushi and Aykroyd, Elwood adding to his brother Jake’s band announcement with, “We’re on a mission from God.” Totally off subject for the AMM, but is it? Following his 2020 LP My Love Is A Hurricane, Austin Music Awards Songwriter of the Year winner David Ramirez takes a different turn with his newest release, Backslider, a collection of Ramirez’s interpretations of several spiritual pieces with jaw-droppingly gorgeous vocals by Ramirez himself.
It just so happens that Ramirez is getting his band back together for a special performance tonight, Saturday March 20, at Empire Control Room, 606 E. 7th St. And another forever AMM favorite, songwriter Mrs. Glass, opens the show. It’s a socially-distanced event; masks are required.
