Another day, another week in mandatory confinement. While many of us are starting to (safely) stretch our legs into the world, it’s going to be awhile before new normal reveals itself. In the meantime, snuggle up on the sofa to a host of Austin musicians doing their best to keep us entertained during the pandemic. Stay safe; donate to artists if your finances allow; and listen local!
Friday, May 29
Streaming Live on Facebook @ 4 p.m.
An artist of range and power, Patricia Vonne’s eclectic blend of southern boogie, Mexican flair, and old-fashioned rock-n-roll has earned her acclaim locally and abroad. Her Friday afternoon streams are events of energy and fun. Expect covers, originals, request fulfillment, plenty of smiles, and virtual high-fives.
Saturday, May 30
Guy Forsyth & Jeska Bailey
Streaming Live on Facebook @ 7 p.m.
If you’ve been sleeping on Guy Forsyth, then please stop. One of the hardest working musicians in Austin, Guy’s rootsy, soulful Americana has graced nearly every stage in our fair city. Accompanied by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jeska Bailey (seriously, she played a musical saw last week), the pair brings life, wit, and wonderful music to their regular streams.
Sunday, May 31
Corey Baum of Croy and the Boys
Streaming Live on Facebook @ 11 a.m.
Forced sequestering can be fertile ground for new projects. While most of us catch up on our reading or start a new hobby, Croy and the Boys releases a new album. Entitled “A World in Croysis: The Covid Tapes,” the record is a lo-fi tapestry of irony, comedy, and truth. Live on stream, Corey Baum channels all the goodness into an interactive and lovely hour of music.
