Austin Music Minute

Welcome To The Gallery

Posted by on Jan 7, 2021

Before the pandemic, chances were pretty good you’d catch Bonnie Whitmore working her magic at The Continental Club Gallery, maybe even sharing a bill with James McMurtry, and most definitely doing a set with Stephanie Marlar – as Marlar was taking a break from tending bar, by the way. In summary: Badasses owning the room, as you may have already guessed thanks to Whitmore’s soul-scorching releases, Last Will & Testament, Coyotes Life and After Life, and unapologetic burner F**k With Sad Girls.

These days, The Gallery is still not be available as COVID-19 spikes to worrisome heights in Austin. However, Whitmore keeps the music lit with her weekly livestream residency The Virtual Gallery, in which she and now online co-pilot Marlar present live performances, conversation and special guests. To start the new year, Whitmore and Marlar are joined by Austin-based producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Scott Davis. Catch the show at 8:30 p.m. (Central) tonight, Thursday Jan 7. Ticket and month-long pass information can be found at Whitmore’s website.
