Come over. Your Saturday night fun is here. Let's play.

The Ripe
The Ripe has sprung forth from it's roots in power-pop, folk, garage, and psychedelia while still being nurtured by contemporary sounds and influences. Born in 2007, the Austin, Texas quartet consists of Jake Garcia on guitar and vocals, Gian Ortiz on bass and vocals, and Nick Yaklin on drums. Cultivated by the energy and hooks of power-pop favorites such as Big Star and The Nerves, and consciously trying to bring to real life the Beatles White Album, these guys also feed upon equal doses of Forever Changes era LOVE and The Kinks at their Village Green best. They are but saplings. But students of rock and roll will want to take a stroll through this forest.

Real Country
Come see JT play songs off of "Past The Lights of Town' Songs he describes this way:
"These songs guided me through times of cold uncertainty, sweaty Austin nights, and helped me translate the languages of love, and define the balance of separation, captivation and release. Somewhere between staring into the night sky, watching the planes go by with my little pink flamingos guarding my camper, and living my newfound city life, these songs wrote me. I had to step out of my head, step into the shadows of a blurring metropolis, ditch voices of my ego and find a quiet place to hear what was happening inside the cosmos that makes me up as a man, a lover, a fighter, a seeker, and a songwriter. After many years on the shelf, Past the Lights of Town finds its way back to me, and on its way to you! One day when you look back at the tiny flashes that make up your life, and you ask yourself the big questions (and I mean the BIG ones); every time, you will find that love is the only answer. For even the stars have to let go of their light to shine."
