To be described as Harry Nilsson, Paul Simon, and Warren Zevon’s love child is not just cool, it’s reverence–and an honor that’s been bestowed upon Walker Lukens in reviews. This Austin-based indie-rock and folk musician manages to coalesce “the raw, vulnerable musings of Nilsson, the pop sensibility of Simon, and the “on the edge” coolest guy in the room vibe of Warren at his Excitable Boy peak.” It’s so good that the singer-songwriter has been nominated for ‘Best Artist’ in the first annual Austin Music Blogger Awards, a brand new event birthed to promote Austin musical talent on a local and national level. The awards ceremony and performances will go down at the Spider House Ballroom on February 27. Doors at 7:30. Tickets can be bought for $12 in advance or $15 at the door.
