In May, Austin-based band Carry Illinois released their most personal recording to date, the six-track EP Garage Sale, produced by John Vanderslice at Tiny Telephone Recording in Oakland. After the loss of friend, fellow musician and collaborator John Winsor, the band created a cathartic musical tribute exploring mourning and coping with loss.
Now, it’s time to take this beautiful music on the road to the West Coast. Carry Illinois has a tour kickoff show tonight at Barrel O’ Fun, 1911 Aldrich St. in the Mueller Development area. Tyler Jordan & The Negative Space get the music going at 9 p.m. Recommended.
