All Good In The Hood Warren Hood Happy Hour All Night
Show 6:30PM

If it’s Wednesday… then it’s time to get happy. And it’s time for Warren. Our weekly shows on Wednesdays with Warren Hood are just the thing you need to get you through the week.

Warren is our neighbor here in South Austin. He’s also an ABGB regular. We count ourselves as pretty lucky to have one of our city’s best musicians living so close… and even luckier that we get to put him and his stellar band to work bringing us his unique swinging Texas roots pop. We’ve nicknamed the shows as being “All Good In The Hood”.

Wednesdays are happy hour all night all long with a $1 off pints and reduced prices on pitchers.

So, come over. We’re going to be having a real good time… and we’re going to be dancing. We want you here.

The Sunday Best Lucas Hudgins
Show 4:00PM
Ends 7:00PM

We call it the Sunday Best… because there’s no better place to be on a Sunday afternoon than with us at The ABGB.

Lucas Hudgins will be here for all your honky-tonking needs. Hudgins refuses to call what he does “Classic Country” because he says that makes it sound like its gone. And Lucas is proof that it’s not. Listening to him sing with deep and smooth confidence, it’s evident how alive and fresh the sound can be. Timeless, that’s what it is.

“Texas Roots meets snakeskin boots.”
– Austin Chronicle

Hang out under the trees.
Drink some beer (that’s all made here).
Hug your friends.
Have a sandwich… or a slice or two.
Swing your partners.

That’s the Sunday Best.

Hell Yes Project: APA! LongStay Spotlight -Jazzy & Lady Red
Show 9:00AM

The primary focus of ABGB’s partnership with Austin Pets Alive! is with their Long Stay Dogs: amazing dogs that have been with the shelter for 300+ days and are still waiting for their forever homes.

To help Austin Pets Alive Long Stay Dogs find these great dogs homes we hold monthly volunteer sessions designed to shine a light on deserving doggies and help them find forever homes. This month session is taking place on a Sunday morning! We’ll join the APA! Campus Cleanup crew at the APA!’s Town Lake Animal Shelter.

This is a 2-hour shift during which we will be improving the visual impression of the grounds of our Austin Pets Alive! TLAC location. We’ll be cleaning outdoor surfaces (benches, chairs, sidewalks), tidying up the kennel signs and equipment bags, raking or sweeping away pesky leaf piles, etc. In general, we’ll be giving the shelter a little makeover! There will be cleaning supplies, rakes and trash bags but if you have anything extra of the like please feel free to bring to use yourself or to donate. It’s highly suggested that you bring your own set of protective gloves (garden, household, nitrile, etc)! Here’s more details:
https://www.facebook.com/events/597882570677175/

Jazzy and Lady Red are the dogs we’ll be spotlighting with our efforts!
