Summer Heat

Posted by on Jun 4, 2018

Things might slow down for you during the summer, but the music goes on, baby. And outstanding bands like PR Newman hit the hot pavement running with a bunch of shows set up for the high-temp months. Front man Spencer Garland and his crew begin a month-long  Monday night residency tonight at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River. The first residency show includes an impressive line-up featuring SMiiLE, Holiday Music, and Being Dead. (your Austin Music Minute host adores Cody & Juli in all their bloody glory, thank you). Get there at 9 p.m.

And another heads-up for you: PR Newman will open for one of the hottest bands around – Black Pumas, at their Thursday night show at Antone’s, 305 E. 5th St. It’s a win-win bill for what promises to be an excellent first night of two Antone’s shows in a row for the BP’s (Thursday was recently added because Friday night quickly sold out, so…well, no surprise there).

Can you dig it? Of course. So recommended.
