Electron Donors 8PM
Vinyl Flashback 10:30PM

 
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

Classic Rock cover band in Austin, playing songs from the 60's, 70's & 80's. "If it is classic rock and came out on vinyl, we play it!"

Friday November 30th  
Jeff Warren Johnston 7:30PM
Guy Forsyth Band 9:30PM
 
Outlaw country, rockabilly, singer/songwriter, farceur.
It’s been a long and dusty, winding road for Austin singer/songwriter Guy Forsyth that’s led to a recent surge in praise over his dazzling live shows and his rich Americana roots sound. Forsyth (vocals, acoustic, electric, & slide guitar, harmonica, ukulele, singing saw), along with Will Landin (bass/tuba) and Jeff Botta (drums/Cajon), bring a unique mixture of styles such as folk, rock, country, and Tin Pan Alley to create a sound that’s as heterogeneous, raw and compelling as America itself. You’ll hear powerhouse vocals deliver energetic yarns about love, the government and the apocalypse, to name a few, as Forsyth and company squeeze everything they have into each song and rarely come up for air. www.guyforsyth.com
