Your humble Austin Music Minute maven is quite partial to bands that take hold of Americana and turn it on its ear. These are the talented musicians and songwriters who fearlessly add their own special touches and keep it sounding fresh.
Tonight, you get a quadruple dose of such wonderfulness at a great show at Holy Mountain, 617 E. 7th St. Four fantastic bands mixing up roots, rock and everything in between:
– Bluegrass/browngrass folk furies Sour Bridges
– El Paso, TX punk-influenced rock quintet The Lusitania (a special salute to my homeboys from an El Paso girl)
– Big-time AMM folk-rock fave These Mad Dogs of Glory
– More El Paso/Austin-raised rock with Crocodile Tears
All good for you. Doors open at 9 p.m. Recommended.
