Love Austin Music: The History Department

Posted by on Feb 26, 2018

February was designated as Love Austin Music Month by KUTX, the Austin Music Foundation, and the City of Austin Music and Entertainment Division as a reminder to support local musicians. The month’s nearly over, but the love and support needs to continue all year long!

Today’s Austin Music Minute selection started out as a side project by vocalist and guitarist Jack Thornton in 2007, The History Department. They’re part of an awesome line-up you can check out tonight at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 900 Red River, which includes fuzzed-up garage punk by Dregs, psych/surf/garage rockers Goldbloom, and AMM dreamboats, poppy punk/garage freaks The Naked Tungs.

This is all damn good. The music starts after 8 p.m. So recommended.
