All Venues Great and Small

Brent Farris, Travis Weller, and James Alexander

Austin has amazing musical offerings in all sizes. From Bass Concert Hall to intimate backyard facilities, there are so many amazing places to hear music it’s hard to keep track of it all. I was lucky to catch local, regional, national, and international premieres in such disparate venues recently, and I’d love to know what you think about it!

Henry Kaiser

Austin has more than a few guitar players wandering its streets. Blues, folk, and indie strummers are not hard to find, but there is a whole world of amazing sounds out there for those who take a moment or two to look around. I saw Les Frères Méduses and Henry Kaiser coaxing all sorts of amazing sounds from their axes. Interested? Check it out HERE.
