Memorial Day Cookout With Crooks / Anthony Ray Wright says
Grab your good-time-diggin', beer-drinkin' friends and come on over and hang with us.

It's a Cookout:
with beer brats made for us by Smokey Denmark's Smoked Meats with our own Hey Yes! Helles, pulled pork sandwiches, hot dogs, and plates that come with some great fixins.

It's a Celebration of Cutoffs:
That's right. Wear your best/sexiest/shortest cutoffs. We'll be having a parade between set breaks from the bands and handing out prizes of appreciation. And there'll be a cutoffs photo booth for you and all your fellow celebrants.

It's a Cornhole Tournament:
for a $200 ABGB tab and the right to wear our championship belts (8-team tournament! Send an email to karena@theabgb .com if you'd like to play!)

It's a Big Party:
Our friends at the Literacy Coalition of Central Texas will be here. If your cutoffs are also smartypants, you might be able to win a prize off of them. And Austin Pets Alive! will be here, too. They'll have Austin Pets Alive Long Stay Dogs with them for you to fall in love with, so be ready.

It's awesome Live Music:
Our friends, Crooks (6pm), will be here. There’s no shortage of country music in Crooks’ hometown of Austin, TX. But ask anyone who has crammed into a packed honky-tonk to catch one of their infamously rowdy late-night shows and they’ll tell you there’s something that sets them apart from the rest. Crooks are breathing new life into decades-old musical traditions, stripping away the polish and shine of modern radio country and replacing it with earnest songs about life, work and pain. Sometimes it’s weary and lonesome, sometimes it’s downright bleak, and oftentimes it’s just reckless fun. Suddenly, country music is dangerous again.

Anthony Ray Wright(4pm) will also be here to get the party revved up. "Anthony Ray Wright plays fast fingered bluegrass and old-timey, boot scootin' country for fans of Hank Williams and the Foggy Mountain Boys. Hear him yodel like Hank on "Long Gone Lonesome Blues" and recall cotton fields, cattle ranches and all-night honky tonks in his more melodic take on Wayne Hancock's "Flatland Boogie," all with smooth emotive vocal lines reminiscent of Johnny Cash".- Texas Music Magazine
