There are so many shows to check out on any given night during the week in our fair city. Any Austin Music Minute follower knows that there’s literally always a band playing somewhere, and quite a few artists doing residencies at various venues. But catching a show at 10 p.m., 11, midnight or 1 a.m. on a weeknight may not be an option for you if you have early work hours the following day, or you’ve got kids to care for. Not gonna happen.
Cast aside those FOMO feelings! The Early Bird is here to help. Created last summer, The Early Bird music series curates shows featuring local artists at early hours, and this spring, you can catch these performances each Tuesday night at The ABGB, 1305 W. Oltorf. Tomorrow night, the spotlight is on KUTX January Artist of the Month, Tomar and The FCs, a guaranteed R&B/soul mega-dance party. The music starts at 6:30 p.m. sharp.
Early show. Excellent band. Pizza and beer. Did I mention beer? Recommended.
