Back in April I managed to get two tickets for the North Mississippi Allstars playing in Austin Texas at Antones. Always wanted to see them live, this was going to be my first opportunity. I decided to make it an epic weekend long Austin music extravaganza. Saturday afternoon April 28, me and a good friend left Houston and headed up to Austin for a wonderful weekend of live music. Austin is incredibly fun to visit, one of the best live music scenes anywhere. Love Austin! Here is our trip report, I took all these pictures and videos too. Fun weekend to say the least. We arrived at the Continental Club that afternoon and caught the 2nd half of Redd Volkaert's show. Redd is a telecaster playing legend, a wonderful guitar player, and an active member here on TDPRI. I've seen Redd live several times, always a treat. Redd's Gramatica amp. And his pedal board, not sure what all these pedals are. Here he is live that evening at the Continental Club. I should have moved closer to the stage to record this oh well, but you get the idea. I got to visit with Redd between sets, just the nicest guy. Go see Redd and his band Heybale if you ever have the chance. Thanks Redd! I saw at the Continent Club that Junior Brown was playing the next night, Sunday. Decided right then we'd stay an extra night in Austin and return to the Continental Club to see Junior. When Redd's show was over we literally walked right across S. Congress Avenue and saw these guys playing at an outdoor venue. Keep Austin Weird!
