Sweet Spirit 11p
With notorious ferocity and powerful hooks, Sabrina Ellis and Andrew Cashen’s newest musical project, Sweet Spirit, has quickly garnered critical praise and captivated the Austin music scene. Known to long-time Austinites for their work in A Giant Dog and Bobby Jealousy, Sweet Spirit proudly strengthens a decade-plus collaboration between the writing partners. A throwback country soul group….delivered in sultry harmonies with as many guitars as possible, Sweet Spirit gives exuberant voice to the struggles of loving and living.
Rock ‘n’ roll. With equal parts of pop and punk.
John Wesley Coleman 9p
A record release show for Mr Coleman!
Austin’s self-proclaimed “trash poet” John Wesley Coleman III incorporates his heady musings and witticisms with analog slacker rock. His new full length release, Greatest Hits, will be released on October 23rd by local imprint Super Secret Records. Following years of varied creative output at a breakneck pace, including performing with psychedelic five-piece The Golden Boys and releasing a combination poetry book/CD titled American Trashcan, Coleman finds himself in new, unfamiliar creative turf – becoming a dad. Greatest Hits chronicles Coleman’s evolution as he subscribes to a new “hustle” – growing older and raising his daughter – and his struggle to bridge new and old ideas of being an artist. Coleman essentially sums this up as “shit being more real now.”
