Your Austin Music Minute host decided it was best to feature a Todd Rundgren go-to for today’s AMM, one that strikes an inner chord so deeply when you hear those first opening chords on the track. Can you even read it in a sentence without thinking of Rundgren’s swoon-worthy greeting? “Hello, it’s me…”
Naturally, the recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee (fans are rightly fuming over that oversight, but Rundgren still makes jokes about it and has other, more important things to think of) is doing something very cool at the moment – a tour supporting not a new recording, but his recent book, The Individualist: Digressions, Dreams and Dissertations, chronicling details of his incredible 50-year career with a bit of insight into his personal life. And that tour brings him to the ATX for a performance tonight at Emo’s, 2015 E. Riverside Dr. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the music starts at 8 p.m.
Very recommended. Think of me…
