Jason Boland & The Stragglers (Isaac Jacob Band opens)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 7 PM

Jason Boland has a reputation of being a modern day country music outlaw. Both he and his band have been leaders in the Texas and Oklahoma music scene for many years. Though Jason is the primary songwriter and singer, this is no one-man show. Jason Boland & The Stragglers have always been true: that of self-reliance, determined professionalism and bringing the best music possible to fans. While at first glance Jason Boland & The Stragglers’ music may seem easy to stereotype as Texas or Country, intent listening makes it harder to categorize their music easily, revealing the influence of the land and life that got them to where they are. Boland knows he can’t shy away from questions about how to classify his music but simply states, “The Chinese don’t call it Chinese food, it’s just food. I’m just making music.” Released in October 2015, their eighth album, Squelch, is angry, subversive, pointed and powerful.

Parker McCollum (Motel Radio opens)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 9 PM

Parker McCollum released his second album, Probably Wrong, in November 2017. Produced by Grammy Award-winner Lloyd Maines, the 10-track LP is the most honest McCollum has ever been in song. McCollum introduced his upcoming project to fans in a three-part roll out. Probably Wrong: Session One came out July 2017, reaching the top of iTunes Country Albums chart and Top 10 All Genre upon release. It includes his current single “I Can’t Breathe,” hailed as “the most powerful song on [Session One]” by the Temple Daily Telegram. Probably Wrong: Session Two dropped September 2017 and features “Misunderstood,”, earning over 100,000 views online. Racking up nearly 90,000 weekly steams, McCollum is the most streamed artist on Spotify according to Texas Music Picker’s Chart for the past six weeks and counting with his single “I Can’t Breathe.” The Austin-based singer and multi-instrumentalist broke out in 2013 with the revealing and critically adored debut The Limestone Kid. In the wake of its release, and its lead single “Meet Me in the Middle” finding success at regional radio, McCollum says “in the blink of an eye” his life drastically changed.”

Shooter Jennings (Jaime Wyatt opens)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 7 PM

When you hear about the son of two country music legends, the product seems inevitable… but what you get from Shooter Jennings is a little bit of that, and a whole lot of what you didn’t realize you wanted. A musician, song writer, producer, and video game creator, Jennings has released eight studio albums, two live records, and has produced and released various projects courtesy of his own record label Black Country Rock. Jennings’ career hasn’t ever stuck to one format, and you can find him all over the map when it comes to where he is at in the game. His latest album, released in 2016, Countach (For Giorgio), came in at #7 on the US Dance/Electronic charts, and was Jennings’ ode to electronic music innovator and songwriter, Giorgio Moroder. The album features songs with various artists including Marilyn Manson, Brandi Carlile and Steve Young. While some stay in the safe-place of their genres, Jennings continues to place himself where he wants to be, and creates exactly what he feels is needed for the time. Music.

Charlie Robison (Kody West opens)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 8 PM

A sixth-generation Texan, Charlie Robison hails from tiny Bandera, Texas. He and his brother, noted musician Bruce Robison, found an interest in music early on, and by the age of 15, Charlie and his brother began playing gigs around Bandera. Later, he made his way to the Austin scene, where he was a part of such bands as Chapparal, Two Hoots and a Holler, and The Millionaire Playboys. In 1995, he released his debut album, Bandera, followed in 1998 by Life of the Party, his first disc on Sony’s Lucky Dog label. In 2000, Charlie became part of history when the “Unleashed Live” Record was recorded at Gruene Hall for Sony’s “Lucky Dog” label. The album is a combined effort with Bruce and good friend Jack Ingram, and culminated with the successful Lucky Dog tour of the US. A second studio effort, Step Right Up, was issued in 2001 followed by his album, Good Times, in 2004. Charlie’s self-produced album, Beautiful Day, was released in 2009 followed by his 2013 release, High Life.

Beloved Texan brother trio recorded its eponymous debut album in 2003 at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales studio in Austin, with Willie himself guesting on the sessions. The album quickly won the band a large national audience. Its lead single “Heaven” became a Top 20 pop hit and eventually won a Grammy Award. Los Lonely Boys solidified their success with 2006’s Sacred, which brought two more Grammy nominations, and 2008’s Forgiven, as well as the holiday-themed Christmas Spirit. The band continued to build its reputation as a singularly powerful live act. On the 2014 release, Revelation, the band collaborated with an eclectic cast of co-writers including alt-country icon Radney Foster, in-demand pop tunesmiths Matthew Gerrard and David Quiñones, Black-Eyed Peas collaborators George Pajon Jr. and Keith Harris, and Raul Pacheco of Ozomatli.

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984. Perez, the band’s drummer, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio.” Three decades, two more Grammys, a worldwide smash single (“La Bamba”) and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well — and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973. As Los Lobos celebrated their fourth decade together, they looked back at their roots in acoustic music with 2013’s Disconnected in New York City and in 2015, Los Lobos released the bold and eclectic album Gates of Gold.

SECOND NIGHT ADDED! Gruene Hall hosts the final stop in Uncle Lucius’ farewell tour! South Austin’s Uncle Lucius is a dream, conjured in the minds of five sonic mercenaries, a clarion call to arms for true believers. It is the voice that shakes you from complacency, grabs you with both hands and implores: Get in the van!!! Like the city that brought them together, UL is a gumbo, with hints of Americana and folk juxtaposed with a slow-cooked roux that is steeped in classic rock n roll and the blues. The resulting flavor is familiar and unique, roots at its most refined, albeit with a gutbucket foundation. After eight years of touring across Texas and to both coasts and back, UL was named 2014’s Best New Band by the Texas Regional Radio Report. The band’s latest album, The Light, was released June 2015.

Going on four decades of keeping the pilot light on Western swing, Ray Benson and Asleep At The Wheel have earned multiple Grammy Awards, and kept a buzz on a genre that might be described as “fringe”, while maintaining a musical integrity that has never wavered. It’s been over 30 years since the birth of this musical American landmark, which has yielded the band 23 albums and 20 Grammy nominations. The long time veterans of Gruene Hall bring the full band to the stage for what is always a stellar performance. Asleep at the Wheel has always worn its affinity for Bob Wills proudly, but never more so than on its most recent album, Still The King, released March 2015.

Jerry Jeff has lived – and is living again – the troubadour’s life. Most folks know that story – how Jerry Jeff moved to Austin in the early ’70s and reinvented himself as a Lone Star country-rocker. He became, along with Willie Nelson and Asleep At The Wheel, one of the arbiters of the internationally famous Austin musical community. Since then, he has celebrated the music of peers such as Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, and served as a fountainhead and inspiration to younger musicians such as Robert Earl Keen, Pat Green, Jack Ingram, Todd Snider and a moderately successful country tunesmith named Garth Brooks.

Blue Water Highway (Morningbird opens)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 7 PM

Blue Water Highway runs just outside of Freeport up towards Galveston along the Texas Gulf Coast, where the cultures of Texas and Louisiana collide in a unique melting pot. It is here, in the town of Lake Jackson, TX, that Zack Kibodeaux and Greg Essington became high school friends after Zack witnessed Greg playing Billy Joel’s “Piano Man,” and immediately enrolled in piano lessons himself. Their partnership included performing in musicals and local coffee shops, until the friends went their separate ways after high school. Greg headed to New York City to pursue a degree in music technology. Zack went to Texas State in San Marcos to study vocal performance, specifically opera. Soon, Zack was writing songs and sending them to his friend in New York. Finally, he coaxed Greg back to Texas to form the band he had been hearing in his head. Although they had landed in their adopted hometown of San Marcos, when it came time to name the band the first thing that came to mind was the landmark back home on the coast. The two dubbed the band, Blue Water Highway Band. Zack turned to Catherine Clark, a fellow opera singer, to complete the three part harmonies that the band would soon to be known for. Kyle James Smith was enlisted as the bassist and Zach Landreneau joined on keyboards, lap steel, guitar, accordion, and pretty much any other instrument you can think of. The band released a self-titled, six song, EP in 2013 and then followed that up with the full length LP “Things We Carry” in 2015.
