It was a dream. But it wasn’t. But…it moved like one. All your Austin Music Minute host vaguely remembers is Madonna, Big Bird, John Wayne, and…a sexy banana? Freddie Kruger woulda seen this one, turned and run screaming. (Or he would stay to party, probably.)
It was actually a commercial Sweet Spirit put together for South Congress costume spot extraordinaire, Lucy In Disguise with Diamonds, which is very generously providing all the necessary over-the-top ensembles and accessories for Sweet Spirit’s October musical residency on Hotel Free TV. It’s like a Halloween dream come true – with rock. And shreds. And…maybe a sexy banana wandering in, who knows?
Hotel Free TV is a DIY virtual residency program supporting the ATX music scene by providing a platform for musicians to share their music, while opportunities to perform live are on hold or very limited. For the month of October, they have Sweet Spirit on board for a weekly livestream series like no other. The band invites you to see them “shred, sweat and live the fantasy” starting at 8 p.m. Central tonight, Thursday October 8, and every Thursday this month, at Hotel Free TV’s website.
Sign me up, Big Bird.
