BEWARE THE IDES, and ENDS, OF MARCH:
Mid-March often plays out with various showcases in Austin during SXSW. After a hiatus for a debut tour in Australia last year, David Olney returns with Sergio Webb THIS WEEK to play shows at the G&S Lounge and Giddy Ups as part of John Conquest & Third Coast Magazine's annual NotSXSW week-long event as well as a showcase at the Grand Ole Austin's SXSW party at Maria's Taco Xpress.
STREAMING ALERT! The G&S Lounge show on Thurs., March 13 will be streaming live online here:
The impetus for the return to Texas this month was the first fan-funded show from the recent Kickstarter campaign, where the boys will be playing in Galveston, TX on Wed., March 12 at the world-famous Old Quarter Acoustic Café.
The last weekend of March has the boys playing THREE shows in Alabama, including the Huntsville area, a return to Moonlight On The Mountain in Birmingham and a triumphant return to the Frog Pond at Blue Moon Farm in Silverhill. (The gig there last November with Malcolm Holcombe was cancelled due to weather.)
