Your Austin Music Minute maven does have a thing for what I’ve referred to as “traveling music.” That is the awesome stuff you take with you on road trips that triggers a sort of lonesome or searching side of you that gets you thinking. Perfect for road adventures, or simply driving on. So that being said, any long stretch of highway would be perfect with a band like Fire In the Kitchen on your personal soundtrack. The local quartet, featuring front man and guitarist Aaron Blackerby, make what they’ve described as “Texas rock music for the wanderers – and wonderers.”
It looks as though plans are in the works for some studio time next month to record a new single for release in the summer, and hopefully an entire album’s worth for a fall or winter release. Meanwhile, make plans to see Fire In the Kitchen perform tonight at The Blackheart, 86 Rainey St. It promises to be a lovely evening with the McMercy Family Band, Mangia Negra and a solo set by Little Brave on the bill. The music starts at 9 p.m. Recommended.
