There, I said it
Probably because of me(ha!ha!)!!
I won't ask...………..
Any detail, or is that it?
No detail that I want to take time to explain. Let's just say that out of the few different music scenes in places I've lived this comes up FAR short
too many flute players
Two old lushes mumbling Hanks songs in the bar/grocery store
Surprising Figured it would be thriving.
Seems like it huh?
Austin is huge, maybe you were on the wrong street?
At least Austin still has one.
I've heard the same from some musicians from Lubbock that have come back to town from Austin. They can get more work around here and in Dallas than in Austin. It didn't used to be that way. It used to be that if you were any good, you went to Austin to get work and to get better.
I haven't been down on 6th Street in 20 years, but back then it was THE place to be.
Yep! It sucks! Dirty 6th ain't what it used to be! However, if you are lucky, you can run into a good band every now and then. Dale Watson is always a good show and Heybale/Red Voelkart are good as well.
I saw Red Voelkart at the Dallas International Guitar Festival a couple of years ago. Great player. I really enjoyed his set, especially since I didn't know much about him.
Music scenes pretty much suck everywhere now days. Based on what's coming out of Nashville right now it may not be much better.
Ha! That’s funny. Austin, Nevada is uhhh, just a wee bit off the grid shall we say? Kinda puts things in perspective. The Austin...Nevada music scene probably leaves a little to be desired, but I hear there are good mountain biking trails there. I should probably check it out one of these days.
I've seen him a handful of times. I caught him at Gruene Hall by chance and ran into him after a set. He is a very personable guy! Super nice! He used to hang out over on the Tele boards.... I forgot the name of our sister site I haven't been there in so long.
He’s still a member of TDPRI, but seldom heard from there.
I'm surprised to hear that. Is the issue that it's tough to get gigs because everybody else seems to have the inside track?
We have a pretty active music scene here in the northern NJ area, but certain gigs (town concerts, town events, better bars and restaurants) are managed by a single promoter. Over 2 years I've found it impossible to get an edge in and dealing with the guy directly made me squirm he was so sleazy.
You aint lying about that...modern music is pretty lacking. Makes we want to record some of the noodling I do and put it on youtube to see if anyone listens. My style is kind of like the blues meets Van Halen and then morphs into Iron Maiden with a heavy side of Black Sabbath. I'll call the band "A Rock Experiment"
