Austin’s Shinyribs, which have become a Texas favorite with a funky, witty mix of country, blues and soul. Whether on his 6 string uke or his electric guitar or singing a capella, front man Kevin Russell will entertain you like no one else. A unique musical experience and an original expression of our colorful musical heritage.
The Old 97s emerged from Dallas 20 years ago blending rootsy, country-influenced songwriting with punk rock energy and delivery. The New York Times has described their major label debut, ‘Too Far To Care,’ as “a cornerstone of the ‘alternative country’ movement.’ They’ve released a slew of records since then, garnering praise from NPR and Rolling Stone, who hailed the band as “four Texans raised on the Beatles and Johnny Cash in equal measures, whose shiny melodies, and fatalistic character studies, do their forefathers proud.”
