Who: Folk-rockers Carry Illinois recently wrapped up their summer tour with shows in Chicago, St. Louis and Fayetteville, the latter being the last stop before heading back to Austin. This was their first tour together, and by the looks of things, it was a blast. The band even got to do a show in songwriter/vocalist Lizzy Lehman‘s hometown of Evanston, Ill.
What: They’ve got something special lined up for their homecoming show. It’s the premiere of their new video for the track “Smoke and Medicine” (featured on today’s Austin Music Minute), from their album Alabaster.
When and where: Carry Illinois performs tonight at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, on the inside stage. The bill includes sets by The Please Please Me, and songwriter Jaimee Harris performing with a full band. The music starts at 9 p.m. Recommended for a lovely Monday night.
