Yes, this is the very thing that makes your humble Austin Music Minute maven swoon. It’s that beloved triple bill, all local talent gracing the stage of the newly-relocated Antone’s, 2015 E. Riverside Dr. Tonight’s show is an absolute guaranteed winner. Check ’em all out:
– Just for the record: Cari Palazzolo is one of my musical heroes here in town, hands down. One of the best. On top of that, having great talents like Matt Simon and Jason Chronis in the picture makes the music even more awesome. Belaire creates ultra-mega pop soundscapes on a cinematic scale. No exaggeration. This is music for the soundtrack to the IFC film in your brain.
– They began as a trio. But I, along with songwriter/vocalist Taylor Wilkins, declared that adding vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Sara Houser was the best thing that happened to this band. Presenting badass melodic pop rock by local quartet The Couch.
– After various name and line-up changes, this band remains one of my favorites, absolutely an underrated talent. Incredible folk-rock by local outfit MARYANN. Download a copy of Outlaw Opry Act 1, then thank me later.
Doors open at 8 p.m., and the music begins at 9 p.m. Get there nice and early to catch each of these bands. Seriously. Recommended.
