The Eggmen @ KUT 11/4/12

Posted by on Nov 4, 2012

Austin cover band The Eggmen isn’t just a Beatles tribute band. They’re the┬áBeatles Tribute Band (at least as far as Austin is concerned). The band’s been going 20 years strong, winning “Best Cover Band” in the Austin Chronicle Music Poll. In a typical show, The Eggmen play three entirely different sets. They start out with the “Suit Set” and play the Beatles’ earlier, more poppy songs. Then they’ll transition into the “Psychedelic Set,” playing the Beatles’ later work. Typically each show closes out with a “British Invasion” set, a bunch of songs by British invasion artists that aren’t the Beatles. All in all, a show with The Eggmen makes for a very 60s-filled good time. The Eggmen are playing a show to celebrate their 20th anniversary at the Scottish Rite Theater on Sunday. That morning, they’ll stopped by Studio 1a to play live on KUT and you can listen to that session RIGHT HERE!
