Armadillo Road 8PM
Silo Road 10:30PM
 
Armadillo Road takes you through a journey of sorrow, heartache, and hillbilly hell raising. With their brilliant melodies, soulful harmonies, and rich lyrical content, it's easy to get completely absorbed by their music. They are not just another country music band, they are a Texas roots band. www.armadilloroad.com Silo Road, a 4-piece Americana & Roots ("Ameripolitan") band, evolved from an acoustic Roots act paying homage to classic Texas artists into the powerful live band they are  today. Their emphasis on well-crafted storylines, tight harmonies, and dynamic song elements, executed with precise musicianship, has helped them develop a unique sound:  Americana forged and hardened in the musical hearth of the great Republic of Texas.

Sounds Like: Chris Whitley, Jeff Buckley, Mark Lanegan, Dwight Yoakum, Neil Young The term “whiskey-soaked” gets thrown around a lot when talking about good ol’ Texas country, but upon listening to this band, it’s hard to deny them that title.

Tom Ben Lindley 6PM
George DeVore 8PM
 
After moving to Austin and playing in various rock bands, Tom's "Outlaw Country" roots emerged. As luck would have it, a friend of his from his home town of Del Rio “Blondie Calderon” was the long-time band leader and piano player for the legendary Ray Price. Thanks to Blondie, he had the opportunity to “hang out” with country music royalty and worked like crazy trying to get a gig as the opening act. It didn’t come over night, but after years of paying his dues he got the opportunity to open for Ray and Johnny Bush one night which then led to playing Willie Nelson's Picnic.

Whey Jennings 10PM
 
  Whey Arron Jennings always had a deep love for music ever since the first time he stepped foot on stage. He was just a boy at one of his Grampa Waylon's show and his Grama Jessi had just left the stage after singing "storms never last" when she sat her mic in a chair back stage and young Whey picked up the mic and pranced out on stage and began singing "Mama's dont let your babies grow up to be cowboys," his Grampa then gave a "hey hold up there hoss" wait for me. And went to pickin and when the song was thru the crowd went nuts and it was on that day that Whey fell in love with music...
