Electron Donors 8PM
South Austin Moonlighters 10PM

 
Electron Donors started as a song-writing /recording collaboration. We all decided that we really wanted to play some of our favorite classic Rock and Roll as well, so we mixed the two and started playing local venues over a year ago under the "Oak-Hill Boys" moniker. We are engineers and professionals who enjoy musical comradery and never lost our teenage desire to be in a band and play good music. electrondonors.com South Austin Moonlighters (SAM) play an eclectic mix of songs, from heartfelt soul to “sh*t-kickin’ country,” and from funky New Orleans funk to raucous rock-n-roll. Somehow it all comes together, creating a magical essence that has earned the band a loyal following. thesouthaustinmoonlighters.com
