Chances are you’ve heard the Austin Music Minute sing praises of Jaimee Harris, not only of her talent and her songwriting, but also of her great support of fellow musicians and bands around town. If she’s not onstage performing alongside them, she’s quite happily in the audience, soaking up every moment of the performance, as any music lover would.
Now it’s time for Harris to take center stage. She’s working on her debut album, Mockingbird Lane, and is kicking off a new residency tonight at the Cactus Cafe. She’ll perform there each Monday night this month, with a special guest sharing the bill. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and Louisa, KY native Tyler Childers will start the night out at 8 p.m. Next week, Betty Soo opens the show, Matt McCloskey opens on Feb. 22nd, and Tahoma on Feb. 29th. Recommended for Monday night awesomeness.
