Join us for a spooky bike ride! We will meet up at Chaparral and depart on bike by 8:30PM. The ride will be 20 minutes long or so and we will end up at the Graveyard to enjoy the Speaking of the Dead after biking through the neighbors. Tickets for the 8:50 Graveyard Speaking of the Dead tour sold separately via This Link. After the graveyard tour, we will bike back to Chaparral and enjoy some wine spritzers and late night happy hour.
Lubbock native Julian Neel (“The Zahir” was featured on today’s Austin Music Minute) makes magic weaving that “twilight twangle, bonfire jangle.” Neel is an absolute must-see for outstanding performances in cozier spaces that add to the atmospheric vibes.
Jordan Moser & Sarah Reyes will swoon us with their musical talents.
Following a decade of ballet performance and recording music, Jordan Moser turns a fresh leaf on his local Keeled Scales debut. The carefully curated collection of country folk slides open softly on the steel guitar-shaped "Down With Me." Rich hums separate Moser's literary lines, echoed by the smoky tone of Austin's Molly Burch on all eight tracks, including a feature for final Western duet "Road to Trouble." Pointed instrumentation and Dailey Toliver's swooping guitar curves make the album agreeable for Burch fans, darkened with a dense tangle of lovesick reflections. "The Devil" prays wearily to the eternal challenge of romance ("Oh Devil, let us sleep like we used to"), followed by the title track's warning: "It's gonna be a long, long night." That sentiment comes to a head on "Love Is Gonna Test You," foiling bright beats over placement in "a wilderness of the soul." The writings of a witty, well-traveled skeptic, Moser's songs slip out like sighs. Sometimes the breaths are resigned, but others mark entrance of a new beginning.
