If you know, you know. Interestingly, it took a friend originally from Alabama/Tennessee to explain it to your Austin Music Minute host. In addition to any shows presented by Eastside Kings Festival at various locations, Skylark Lounge is the spot to witness incredible blues shows. And it’s the spot where the Austin Blues Society Gathering presents performances by local and regional blues artists for musicians and fans alike to celebrate everything they love about the music. It’s the intimate atmosphere of the Skylark Lounge that also makes the experience an exceptional one every time.
The tradition continues with another Austin Blues Society Gathering tonight, Thursday Sept. 21, at the Skylark, 2039 Airport Blvd., starting at 9 p.m. This evening’s jam will be led by musicians Xavier Shannon (pictured above) and Kendall Harrison, with backing band The Brand. Get there early for a set featuring drummer Ernie Durawa with guitarist Murali Coryell at 7 p.m.
