Allow me to steal a moment from your Monday to peak into the lives and minds of a few of our stupendous Do512 All-Stars…
All-Star: G_ack aka Greg Ackerman has been filling us in on what’s happening on the music scene and give us a preview what we should look out for at gregackerman.blogspot.com. Last weekend there was a ton of great local music to catch if you knew where to find it. Thankfully Greg is always on the other side, giving it to us straight.
Robyn Ludwick was a top pick for Greg last Thursday, playing Momo’s. “Although she is forever mentioned as the sister of country songwriters, Charlie and Bruce Robison, we prefer her music to her more famous siblings. Maybe it is her crack band or the way she connects to the audience, but we just like her style.”
He also gives a preview of Mogwai, who is set to play tonight, May 16 at Stubb’s. He suggests that “if you attended Austin Psych Fest two weeks ago, then you will likely enjoy the post-rock pioneers from Glasgow (Scotland) live show.” Describing their live performances as “just what fans would hope for, driving, intelligent, progressive music,” we can expect big things from Mogwai tonight.
Here’s a peek (expect big, face-melting, heart-filling bright lights!):
All-Star: tiffanydiane lets us in on her daily life happenings in her latest addition to her eclectic blog austinisburning. Last week, this adorable Austin blogger has this to say about the imminent Summer days: “Summer started, and I haven’t really been doing a whole lot. I’m a total stick in the mud lately. I think sometimes people just have to go through lulls of not going out before they’re ready to go at it again. So, here’s to possibly re-energizing this bunny. Hopefully the summer is filled with more of the same, but with swimming and pool-lounging involved, more shopping, more money, weird nights, adventures, maybe a road trip or vacation, cocktails, pizza parties, day trips and whatever.”
Because we like to look at attractive people and see what they’re up to, scroll down to view Tiffany and friends in her latest installment of the ‘funsaver series’:
