The Troubadillos 5PM
Jimmie Dreams 7:30PM
 
The Troubadillos have been an institution at Poodies since 1992. Louis Long started the first open mic night, and when he started the Troubadillos with BB Morse, they were the house band for 11 years, until Poodie passed away 9 years ago. See "The Totally Terrific Troubadillos" every Tuesday! A lifelong Austinite, Jimmie Dreams’ life trajectory forever changed when an infant Jimmie escaped from his stroller, only to be taken in by roving Austin Musicians. His first full-sized guitar was purchased from a protoge of Lightnin’ Hopkins. His long-time childhood teacher learned from SRV himself. Today his guitar playing, described as “ingenious” by Offbeat Magazine, has taken him nearly around the world. His recent endeavors have found him venturing out to center stage, under the spotlight, and on to making his name as a guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, and bandleader for Crescent Soul Revue, the Gritones, and a slew of other bands. jimmiedreams.com

Josh Pearson Band 8PM
Graveltooth 10:30PM
 
Josh Pearson strives to change the world, one note at a time with his pop jam style music. His catchy pop songs, reminiscent of John Mayer & Eric Clapton, lend way to funky, jazzy improvisation heavily influenced by his love for Phish & the Grateful Dead.
Since forming in 2015 in Hudson Bend, TX, Graveltooth has become known for their explosive and gutsy rock and roll, heartfelt lyrics and soulful grooves that often venture into psychedelic terrain. Their sound is an amalgamation of many influences but is ultimately about taking an old school, down and dirty approach to music. It’s a sound that transports the listener to a seemingly long lost era of high-flying guitars and rock'n roll bravado.

Doc Pointer 7PM

WC Clark 9PM
 
One of Austin's most talented vocalists. Doc Pointer plays in several blues bands all over Texas. docpointer.net “If the blues is played right,” says Austin, Texas native W.C. Clark, “it makes your soul feel clean.” Indeed, master guitarist/vocalist Clark – known as “The Godfather of Austin Blues” – has been playing the blues right and cleansing souls from the east side of Austin to stages around the world for over 40 years. He's been mentoring countless young blues and soul players in the finer points of the music for almost as long. Blues stars from Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan to Angela Strehli to Lou Ann Barton to Marcia Ball have all perfected their craft under Clark's tutelage. Clark's mix of modern Texas blues, searing guitar and heartfelt, Memphis-style soul vocals have made him a favorite of blues and R&B fans alike.

Electron Donors started as a song-writing/recording collaboration.

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 Shelby Cheyenne is a 19-year-old Blues musician and multi-instrumentalist. She began playing the electric guitar at age eleven. She fell in love with Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, so much so that she convinced her parents to move from Knoxville TN, to the live music capital of the world, Austin TX. shelbycheyenne.com
