The Breeders at First Ave Poster
Sun 05/13/2018 (7pm/$25)
The Breeders will be headlining First Avenue this Sunday. The band is probably best known for their one-hit “Cannonball” song. Unfortunately, I do not believe Tanya Donelly will be joining the Deal sisters (Kim & Kelley Deal) as she’s busy prepping and touring with her re-formed Belly band this Summer.
If you love The Pixies and 90s alternative bands, you have to see the Breeders on Sunday… then head over to Liz Phair on June 4 at the Turf Club.
It’s like the 90s never left us. Hooray!

Fine Line Music Cafe
Sat 05/12/2018 (7pm/$26)
54-time Austin Music Award-winner Bob Schneider is headlining the Fine Line Music Café on Saturday. His latest studio album, Blood and Bones, is out now.
Show up early to check out Mobley, touring in support of Fresh Lies Vol 1. If you were wondering about the title of the record, Mobley said, “Fresh Lies, Vol. I is the first step of what will be a lifelong exploration of my relationship with my country. Using the form of love songs and the metaphor of a romantic relationship, I've tried to delve into what it means to be a person, a man, black in America at the turn of this century. It's a journey that is too big for an album, but I hope that this first installment of the Fresh Lies song cycle gets people as excited as I am to see where things go.”
