Its mission is simple and direct. And its very existence is meant to represent a multitude of voices you may be discovering for the first time. Check it all out.
One Road Austin, a concert series created to celebrate Austin’s diverse musical community, made its official debut just last year, and a premiere of sorts last week at venue 3Ten. Now you have the opportunity to experience endless waves of talent through One Road Austin with Songs of Love, Equity & Soul, a huge show happening tonight at Antone’s, 305 E. 5th St.
The evening features local artists performing much-beloved classics by Marvin Gaye, Joni Mitchell, Santana, The Beatles and more. And this is one sick line-up: Kalu James (Kalu and The Electric Joint), Vallejo, Jai Malano, The Watters, Stephanie Bergara (Bidi Bidi Banda), Kiko Villamizar, Lesly Reynaga, Nagavalli, Haydn Vitera, Tomar Williams (Tomar and The FCs), Nelson Valente Aguilar (Como Las Movies), Curtis Lee, Johnny Goudie, and a special performance featuring School of Rock artists, in addition to surprise guests.
It’s a lot to see – and it’s fantastic. Doors at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. Very recommended.
