Flowers For the Living

Posted by on Feb 26, 2021

Riders Against the Storm have just released their new album Flowers For the Living, reveling in the celebration of loved ones here and now, rather than after they’re gone. And the dynamic Austin duo celebrates the new music with THANKFUL, a benefit livestream show supporting the Black Live Music Fund, in partnership with SixSquare.

Yet again, you’re treated to another outstanding line-up, featuring performances by RAS and special guests Jake Lloyd, Eimaral Sol, Nook Turner, Deezie Brown, Nnedi, and J Soulja. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. (Central) tonight, Friday Feb. 26, on Facebook Live and YouTube.

Seriously, this will be an extraordinary experience. Do you follow Mobley on Instagram? If so, you know exactly what the Austin Music Minute is raving about, with merely a glance at the brief preview clip of what’s to come. Sound and vision, times a hundred…!

Mobley’s expansive and gorgeously cinematic Devil In A Daydream nine-date virtual tour kicks off tonight, Thursday Feb. 25 at 8 p.m. (Central) with a spectacular release show for Young and Dying In the Occident Supreme, with proceeds benefitting the DAWA fund and featured Austin venues Emo’s, the Historic Scoot Inn, and the Parish. Equally ambitious in this entire virtual journey is the sick line-up launching this tour: Bright Light Social Hour, Tameca Jones, Walker Lukens, Sun June, Torre Blake, Daniel Fears, Chief Cleopatra, Caelin, and Mercutio & The Constantines.

KUTX, the City of Austin Music and Entertainment Division and the Austin Music Foundation have designated February as Love Austin Music Month, and the AMM is highlighting online various performances by Austin-based artists.

Even in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges faced by musicians during the pandemic, Mobley has leaned into the chaos to get his music out through livestreams and strategically-planned socially-distanced performances – literally performing curbside or on front lawns. And now, with his new album Young and Dying In the Occident Supreme set to drop this week, Mobley will launch an incredible 9-date virtual tour, intimate performances done on a cinematic scale. Every set will be unique for each individual city – Austin, Chicago, Atlanta, New York, LA, Houston, San Francisco and more – done on stages, natural settings, unconventional spaces, all seen from the comfort and safety of your home.

Tickets for each show are pay-what-you-can, with proceeds benefitting the DAWA fund and select music venues in each respective city. The virtual tour kicks off Thursday Feb. 25, but Mobley has a livestream set scheduled for 4 p.m. (Central) this Friday, Feb. 19, on Waterloo Records’ Facebook Live.
