Happy Thursday! As we continue to shelter in place, the music we’re listening to can anchor us in the midst of uncertainty. It’s a tough time for everyone, so any time, love, or funds you can provide our local talent is greatly appreciated. Enjoy this week’s picks and always listen local!

Eve Monsees & Mike Buck
Streaming live via Eve and the Exiles Facebook Page @ 7 p.m.
If you moseyed on down to Antone’s on a Wednesday night, it’s likely you caught the guitar/drummer duo Monsees & Buck. Veterans of the local music scene and owners of Antone’s Record Shop, this dynamic husband/wife team has been cranking out killer blues and R&B since the pandemic hit. If you miss the vibe of old-school Austin, then this is the stream to catch.

Born in the shadow of ACL Live, 3Ten’s been producing killer shows its big brother should be jealous of. Luckily for music fans, no pandemic is going to stop the music. This weekend, the dynamic and exciting Jonathan Terrell graces the virtual stage with his trademark brand of gritty country and guitar-slinging swag. An awesome way to spend a Friday night.

Ray Benson’s Birthday Bash w/Asleep at the Wheel, Willie Nelson, Kat Edmonson, more
Streaming Live on Facebook and YouTube @ 6 p.m.
Gaze upon that lineup and grin. Ray Benson’s yearly birthday bash has been a “mark your calendar” event since 2004. Despite the event cancellation, Ray refuses to let the year pass without a shindig of some sort. His virtual party promises to be epic with heavy hitters like Willie Nelson, Randy Rogers, and Asleep at the Wheel all in attendance. Like every year, all proceeds go to HAAM, so settle in for great music for an exceptional cause.
