The Little Lady That Wasn’t

Posted by on Mar 18, 2013

The following is a true story. Even I, your Austin Music Minute maven, can’t make this up.

Recently, Mrs. Glass was invited to perform in Studio 1A with John Aielli as their host. Unfortunately, I missed the performance, but Aielli was more than happy to offer this stellar review, in a way that only Aielli could: “Mrs. Glass is the ugliest woman I’ve ever seen, but she makes the most beautiful music!”

Classic.

You’ll not find a single missus in Mrs. Glass, but you do get damn good music from these talented gents.Vocalist/guitarist Mrs. Glass (not quite a real “Mrs.” but a moniker) bassist Ivan Evangelista and percussionist Ian Fry played together – quite randomly – before they were even officially a band, but that fateful night of jamming got the ball rolling. Now, with a new self-titled full-length release, their forging ahead with other projects, including some possible live recordings with East Cameron Folkcore on vinyl.

One of the best places to see Mrs. Glass is at The White Horse, 500 Comal St., where you can see them Tuesday night at 10 p.m. Ramsay Midwood follows at midnight. And another great place to see them play is at The Blackheart, 86 Rainey St., which is where they’ll be Thursday night. Both come recommended. Cheers.
