‘Tis true, there are a number of big celebrations going down this Fourth of July weekend. But as you know, your humble Austin Music Minute maven prefers the ones with live music. Here are a handful of recommendations you can add to your Independence Day plans:
The Scoot 4th of July party with performances by The Couch, Holiday Mountain and more at the Historic Scoot Inn, 1308 E. 4th and Navasota. 2 p.m.
The Happy 4th of July Shindig at the Hole In the Wall, 2538 Guadalupe featuring Wild Bill & the Lost Knobs, The Bluebird Specials and many more. 7 p.m.
The July 4th Rockaway Beach Party at Hotel Vegas, 1502 E. 6th St. with local bands covering music by The Electric Light Orchestra, The Stooges and David Bowie.
A fabulous (and guaranteed very memorable) Bobby Jealousy‘s Jealous Friends Tour kick off show at the Museum of Human Achievement. 9 p.m. Please message the museum for directions.
Southpaw Jones and Brian Kremer playing some sets at Strange Brew, 5326 Manchaca.
Plenty to choose from. But whatever you decide to do, have a safe and Happy July 4th. Enjoy the music.
