Andrea Marie & Magnolia Band 8PM
Dale Watson 10PM
 
The Magnolia Band has been bringing their own brand of Americana and country music to audiences across the country for the past decade. With Andrea Marie at the helm on lead vocals and guitar, John Fink on guitar and mandolin, and Matt Ramirez on percussion and backing vocals, this amped up trio charms listeners as they showcase their original songs and a repertoire of tributes covering everyone from Merle Haggard to Fleetwood Mac. magnoliamusicaustin.com Though Dale Watson’s recording career spans two decades, the maverick country traditionalist has never before released an album like this.  “There’s nothing here that’s retro,” insists Dale of Carryin’ On. “I was really hoping to make a record with today’s technology, but with the musicians who played on the music I grew up on.  I’m pretty happy with the way we’ve merged today with yesterday on this album. It will remind people of the old records, but it sounds like something new.” dalewatson.com
