Fastball fanatics across Texas have another opportunity to see some of their two-decade-old rock favorites played live! KUTX listeners and Austin music aficionados are quick to peg Fastball as somewhat of a cornerstone of the local music scene, with six studio albums recorded and released since their debut all the way back in 1996. Fastball intermittently emerges for a quick series of shows between releases and because eight years has passed between the last two albums, the need to see them when they do perform live is all too real.
Fortunately for fans old and new, Fastball plays tomorrow night at 3Ten along with fellow ’90s rock genre-benders Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers before kicking off a quick regional tour across their native Lone Star State with stops in The Colony, Houston and New Braunfels. Can’t make it to one of their shows? No trouble – Fastball came by KUTX’s Studio 1A last April for a live broadcast session and now almost exactly one year later you can enjoy a free download of some of their most recent live material from the latest album Step Into Light – “Just Another Dream”.
