Tameca Jones w/ Dylan Bishop and Jitterbug Vipers
@ C-Boy’s Heart & Soul (2008 S. Congress Ave.) – Doors at 6 p.m.
One of Austin’s finest soul artists, Tameca Jones is a force of musical fury. Owning a breathtaking, heart-stirring voice and an ear for groove, Jones seamlessly dances the line between beauty and bombast. An artist worth seeing before she blows up nationwide. Filling out the lineup are ATX jazz jumpers Jitterbug Vipers and Dallas-based blues man Dylan Bishop.

@ The Blackheart (86 Rainey St.) – 9 p.m.
Alternative pop act Indoor Creature celebrates its latest release, “Windows,” this Saturday at The Blackheart. Balancing sharp, 80’s synth with layered dreamscapes and whimsical arrangements, this two-some has a sound all their own. Odd, dreamy and a bit weird, Indoor Creature still manages to catch your ear with off-kilter pop goodness.
Sunday, March 26
@ The Blackheart (86 Rainey St.) – 9:00 p.m.
One of Austin’s finest party bands continues their weekly residency at The Blackheart this Sunday. Featuring nine members, all with varying degrees of funky hair styles and costumes, Big Britches is sensational funk, soul and R&B. Prepare to boogie your way to Monday with this exciting, electric Austin original.
