It’s another fantastic bill at Hotel Vegas tonight, with perfect nighttime serenades from artists to keep an eye on:
Ryan Sambol is known for his work with The Strange Boys and Living Grateful, and is now embarking on a solo career with some incredible songs, most of which can be found on the Punctum Records label.
Lubbock native Julian Neel (“The Zahir” was featured on today’s Austin Music Minute) makes magic weaving that “twilight twangle, bonfire jangle.” Neel is an absolute must-see for outstanding performances in cozier spaces that add to the atmospheric vibes. (Your humble AMM hostess recently had the pleasure of seeing Neel completely wow audiences at Justine’s.)
Spencer Garland, now based in Dallas, is keyboardist extraordinaire for local band Berkshire Hounds, but has his own intriguing collection of dreamy lo-fi solo demos and self-produced recordings to explore.
See them all tonight at Hotel Vegas, 1502 E. 6th St. Doors at 9 p.m. Recommended.
