WOW! Only $5 to see these 4 bands! ...So maybe put something in the tip jar too, huh? :-)

VaNa MaZi plays "OLD COUNTRY MUSIC FROM THE NEW WORLD" aka "EURASIAN PROG CORE". “This incredible Eastern European folk-dance group is fresh off a West Coast tour. Dripping with talent, charm, and charisma, one does not merely “attend” a VaNa MaZi show – one participates. Difficult to classify (Gypsy-slava-jazza-folk?), easy to enjoy, they make their bread and butter on music that would give Gogol Bordello conniptions.” - J. Angelo Cassaro, six austin bands and their drink pairings (Aug 22, 2013) http://www.vanamazi.com/

Indimaj إندماج interweaves musical forms across the Middle East, India and the West, and through its improvisations offers a transcendental musical experience....
A sample of a live performance at The Sahara Lounge, a jam session between Brazilian and Arab communities in Austin with members of Indimaj إندماج, Seu Jacinto, Layalina ليالينا, Macaxeira Funk and Atlas Maior. Featured musicians include Michael Longoria, Sari Andoni, Frederico Geib, Frank Almendra, Joshua Thomson, Julie Slim-Nassif, Rabia Ali, Jan Flemming, Raviteja Nulu, and Ziyad Doany. http://soundcloud.com/sari-andoni/3-brazileri

Veselka Project w/ Wolfgang Bas (instrumental/ Ukranian spoken word/ poetry in English) https://soundcloud.com/veselka-project/sets/tremble-line

Kratom Shakes w/ Andrew Noble (drums, guitar, violin)
https://m.soundcloud.com/mondayjamredux ...The Kratom Shakes are all that remains of a once thriving religious cult. Two decades of drugs, sex, and Jesus distilled down to a charming southern prog trio. These are the vapid children of a lesser God. Get ready for an evening of enchanted whimsy as the boys play re imagined versions of the religious material that got their families in so much trouble so long ago. During performances all band members will be high on the fringe botanical Kratom (currently the only drug they can seem to get away with).
