You’ve likely heard your Austin Music Minute maven rave about this meeting of talented minds. Iron & Wine songwriter Sam Beam first collaborated with Calexico‘s John Convertino and Joey Burns on the 7-track EP In the Reins back in 2005, and it proved to be a perfect pairing of aesthetics. Fourteen years later, it’s apparent they continue to inspire each other on the beautiful arrangements of their latest release, Years to Burn.
Calexico and Iron & Wine perform tonight at Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater, 801 Red River. Doors open at 7 p.m., and special guest Natalie Prass opens the show, followed by a must-see aftershow performance by Little Mazarn on Stubb’s indoor stage at 10 p.m. Recommended.
