10:15 Moonlight Towers
How does the Austin, Texas band Moonlight Towers win such lofty praise as “amazing” (Performing Songwriter) and “simply wonderful” (High Bias)? Just by doing what comes naturally: writing, recording and playing real rock’n’roll with a hearty pop kick, and being a genuine band. It’s really that simple.
That not so secret key of creating “good pop/rock music with hooks, heart AND heartache” — as Dagger Zine describes Moonlight Towers — has made the group “Austin’s favorite three-minute heroes” (Austin American-Statesman) and the renowned musical city’s “finest power pop export” (Pop Culture Press). And on Day Is The New Night, their third long-player, the foursome deliver their finest and richest sonic offering yet of what’s already been hailed as “perfectly molded power-pop” (Chicago Reader) and “radio-ready, pop-accented guitar rock” (Texas Music).

9p Sweet Gary's Gary Newcomb has been a long time fixture of the Austin music community. A founding member of Lil' Cap'n Travis, Gary has also played and recorded with countless other bands and artists including Bill Callahan (Smog), Richard Buckner, Okkervil River, Shearwater, Bruce Robison, Kelly Willis, The Lonesome Heroes, Leo Rondeau, Dave Gonzalez ( The Paladins, Hacienda Brothers) & the Stone River Boys, Suzanna Choffel , Dickie Lee Erwin, Rick Broussard & Two Hoots and a Holler, The Damnations TX, Damon Bramblett and What Made Milwaukee Famous. Gary has also made three records of original material as The Gary Newcomb Trio featuring the Pedal Steel Guitar as the main instrument accompanying the vocal. Sweet Gary is a new project which adds back the guitar into the mix. Sweet Gary has begun recording a new record to be released in the fall.opens the show.
