Austin’s JT Habersaat is a comedian and a big music fan, and a few years ago he launched Altercation Comedy Fest as a way to bring these communities together. Now in its fourth year, Altercation takes place September 25-28 within the cozy confines of Kick Butt Café, and this year’s lineup features Eddie Pepitone, Billy Wayne Davis, Jenny Zigrino, Joe Sib, and more. Musicians get in on the fun too with Road Stories, an event featuring members of the Riverboat Gamblers, the Sword, and All telling (you guessed it) funny/weird/horrifying stories from their tour experiences.

This week on My KUTX, Habersaat returns as our guest DJ to play an hour of music and clips from some of Altercation’s must-see comedians. Hear My KUTX on Saturday, September 14 at 6 p.m. or listen at any time in the player below.
