Elaine Greer Debut Album Release! Tour Kickoff w/ The Sour Notes!

It makes me smile to see new Austin bands progress and grow.  I was able to catch Elaine Greer at the Mohawk a few weeks ago, opening for Tristen, and absolutely loved her set.  Shortly after I saw the show, I learned that she’s now gearing up for a tour with The Sour Notes AND she’s about to release her debut album.  Not only that, but she’s releasing it at 29th Street Ballroom with a bunch of other amazing Austin bands in a Tour Kickoff Show!

A bit about Elaine Greer, she’s a singer-songwriter with a super tight backing band, and when they perform, it’s pretty much like watching a bunch of good friends having a great time together, which is so much fun to experience.  Elaine has a 6 song EP from back in 2009 which I was able to listen to, and I must say it’s a delightful collection of earth toned folk with catchy melodies and hooks.  I can only hope for more on her full length, entitled “Annotations” which will be released at the 29th Street Ballroom, one week from tomorrow (June 30th).

Another thing I am always refreshed to see is the strong sense of community our music scene has.  When a band releases an album or goes on tour, it’s like every other band swarms in to help support them, and this is a perfect example.  There will be seven other groups playing this release show, as well as a DJ (Ben Blackout) to really make this a special event.  Of the seven groups is Elaine Greer’s touring partners, The Sour Notes:

Also, there will be free pizza from Gatti’s Pizza, which sort of makes this the perfect event.

Come support awesome Austin bands!
