If ever you’ve had the pleasure of seeing Jackie Venson perform live, you’ve most likely felt your soul explode. No exaggeration. Those fingers fly across the strings, the shreds are absolute bliss, and you’re hooked. Sit up and pay attention.
The Austin-based songwriter and guitar soloist extraordinaire is this week’s featured artist in the Native Hostel Sittin’ In music series. Venson performs tonight at Native Hostel, 807 E. 4th St., right next to IH-35, along with special guest, the fabulous “auditory R&B healer” Eimaral Sol. Doors open at 7 p.m. Get there early to get the best seats. Recommended.
