Beefheart , Tim Weisberg, Dan Fogelberg, Rusty Weir, Bubble Puppy, Gary Clark Jr., Alan Haynes, Guy Forsyth, Miss Lavelle and WC Clark. “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.

Flyjack 8PM
Graveltooth 10:30PM
 

FLYJACK got its start in 2007 playing a weekly residency at TC’s Lounge on Austin’s deep eastside – a dilapidated but much-loved holdover from Austin’s “chitlin’ circuit” days. In 2008, the band initiated a funk/soul series called “Superfly Soul Party” – featuring other like-minded groups, performing at the Victory Grill and other establishments in and around Austin. In April 2008, FLYJACK moved their residency to Antone’s – Austin’s Home of the Blues – initiating the successful “SuperSoul Mondays.”

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. www.graveltoothmusic.com

If you believe that Haggard trumps Chesney, if you turn up your radio when Buck comes on and change the channel when Rascal Flatts starts whining…. This is your band. One word: “Real”
