Your Austin Music Minute host may have found her new theme song, thanks to this Hill Country gem who knows a thing or two about shaky ground, rattled nerves, and being driven beyond distraction. “Going Crazy” by Kathryn Legendre is the track featured on today’s AMM, from her new EP Making It Up, a perfect collection of straight-up traditional honky-tonk, delivered with Legendre’s own unique swagger, delving into equal parts weep-in-your-whiskey heartbreak (“Sit Here & Cry”), and a delightfully dark wit (“Letters From Prison”).
Take it all in when you see Kathryn Legendre tonight at The White Horse, 500 Comal. Legendre shares the bill with Jean Wranglers and the Texas Tycoons. Mondays done right. The music starts around 8 p.m. Recommended.
