Austin-based songwriter and founding member of Li’l Cap’n Travis Gary Newcomb has worked with the best of the best local artists, performing and recording with the likes of Bill Callahan, Okkervil River, Shearwater, Leo Rondeau and countless others, while finding time to record three albums with his own band, The Gary Newcomb Trio, formed in 2007. It’s a rich and wonderful musical history Newcomb has, and, as any well-rounded artist with such talent, he also makes time for his solo work. Expect new music on the way from Sweet Gary in the very near future. (Hear an exclusive preview of “go lite” on today’s Austin Music Minute.)
Sweet Gary will give you a sneak peak of what’s to come with his show tonight at the Hole In the Wall, 2538 Guadalupe. Following Vulcan Video’s Movie Monday screening, Low Standards kicks off the music at 10 p.m., followed by Sweet Gary at 11:30 pm. Recommended.
