COVID-19’s omicron variant quickly curbed some of the Live Music Capital’s winter highlights – high profile New Year’s Eve shows, an overflow of talent throughout Free Week, and the long anticipated return of music to KUTX’s beloved Studio 1A. But especially with the recent foggy mornings and freezing temperatures on the horizon, we’re just thankful to share some sultry summer heat from Austin’s Sun June.
Sun June stopped by Studio 1A in early December, right around the same time that the quintet released the deluxe expanded edition of their LP Somewhere. They’re starting off 2022 strong with a multi-month three-leg national tour with support from Daphne Tunes (fronted by featured guitarist Santiago Dietche), a co-headline tour with Katy Kirby, and supporting Shakey Graves, including an appearance on Sunday, February 6th at Empire Control Room alongside Little Mazarn. With uplifting chord structures and earthy arrangements (including Somewhere (Expanded) exclusive “Reminded”) Sun June’s Studio 1A set is absolutely phenomenal.
Musicians: Laura Colwell (vocals, keys); Sarah Schultz (drums); Justin Harris (bass); Michael Bain (electric guitar); Santiago Dietche (acoustic guitar); David Alvarez (saxophone)
