There might have been a bit of confusion in those early days. You’d hear the name Mrs. Glass but see Jordan Webster and his band tearing things up at their residency at The Blackheart back when Rainey St. wasn’t a complete nightmare, or stirring folks up at The White Horse and the Hard Luck Lounge. Webster is the songwriter behind the name, the NOLA transplant in the three-piece suit who knows the demons consuming the mind. That gravel-voiced grit defines the experience, the unsettling feeling of trouble on the way – and you know you want it. Now and then, Webster would even raise his glass of whiskey to toast you as he worked his magic.
These days, Webster makes his home in the Pacific Northwest. But Austin fans have a chance to see him perform on a livestream at 7 p.m. tonight, Monday September 21, on the Mrs. Glass Facebook page. While you’re at it, pour yourself a glass and check out the album Happy Every Day to get you ready for the show.
This is your perfect rainy Monday night. You’re welcome.
