Egad! So many choices! That’s why the Austin Music Minute has this very special edition of the AMM featuring four (count ’em – FOUR) live stream selections:
White Denim front man James Petralli gives a solo performance at 5 p.m. (Central) for the first installment of the series Constant Bop. Proceeds from your virtual ticket benefit the band and the staff of Austin music venue, the Mohawk. Get your ticket to get a link to the show.

Check it out! Your Austin Music Minute maven (very greedily) presents two live stream picks for Thursday, May 28th.
First: Local nonprofit Kids In A New Groove, which provides mentoring for Texas youth in foster care through music instruction, is presenting a KING Concert featuring Austin-based artist Carson McHone. The show starts at 7 p.m. (Central), and you can RSVP for a link to the livestream.
-The featured tracks on this AMM episode include Carson McHone’s “Drugs” from the album Carousel, and Daphne Tunes’ “now that you’re new (home version).”

On today’s AMM (click on the MP3, please), listen carefully just after the introduction. You’ll hear a really cool dude informing the musicians that recording is now in session. That cool dude is Cruz. He’s 4 years old. And the musician who answered him is Carrie Rodriguez – who happens to be Cruz’s mom.
And the performance of the track “Z” is from Rodriguez’s series A Song For You, in which she and husband/collaborator Luke Jacobs play songs and share their performances on video via social media.
This week, Rodriguez and Jacobs will join friends Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis for a song swap on the live stream series Virtually Green Note…in the round, an online musical event curated by London-based venue the Green Note. Don’t miss out on the show, Wednesday May 27th, at 2 p.m. (Central) on the Green Note’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. Don’t miss out.
