​ABOUT JONATHAN TERRELL​
Jonathan Terrell is a new breed of country, pulling inspiration from dreamscapes and in depth stories from the gorgeous and gritty corners of Americana. He received international praise for his 2008 full length solo debut, “Trials and Stimulations”, and began work on his next record until shelving the project in 2011 to front and tour with the rock’n’roll band, Not In The Face.
Terrell returned to his second album of songs and shaped them into an enchanting collection of yearning and bravado, heartbreak and redemption. He released “Past the Lights of Town” four years later, in 2015 on Candy Bang Records. He followed the release of “Past the Lights of Town” with residencies in NYC, DC and Philadelphia, a UK tour and a sold out French Tour. Jonathan is currently touring in the U.S. and finishing a new full length record set to release spring of 2019.
“Jonathan Terrell Is a Feminist, Gun Toting Singer Smashing Country Stereotypes”- Noisy
“On last year’s notable sophomore LP, Past the Lights of Town, Terrell hits sparse and direct, his voice rusted with a hard twang in sharp ballads that twist exceptional lines like barbed wire”- Austin Chronicle

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.

Hell Yes Project: Barton Springs Pool Cleaning
Show 11:00AM
@ Barton Springs Pool!

HEADS UP! A WEEK LATER THIS MONTH DUE TO 4TH OF JULY!

Come help keep the pool sparkling for the swim season by jumping in to help Friends of Barton Springs Pool. The group meets the first Thursday of the month. The pool is closed, so it’s so nice to be there when we have it to ourselves.

We’ll be doing the 11a-1p shift, but there are 9am and 1pm shifts, too! …and check it out, everyone that volunteers to join will be welcome to come to the ABGB afterwards for a ‘slice of love’ on us.

Please tell us you’re coming by saying “Hell Yes!” in the comments. And we’ll share the official signup link when it’s available.

ABOUT THE HELL YES PROJECT
We believe that beer makes it better. Times with friends, a hot slice of pizza, seeing a great band, and, after a nice dip in Barton Springs and some time on the pool’s hill, getting something cold to drink. Hell yes, beer makes all of these things better. But we also believe that beer has the power to make our entire community better. The Hell Yes Project’s goal is to prove this idea true. The Hell Yes Project harnesses beer’s innate goodness and puts it into action improving our city and enriching the lives of lots of folks.

Hell yes, the ABGB loves Barton Springs Austin TX. Long before we ever broke ground on the ABGB, we had many a “meeting” on the pool’s hill dreaming the place up. It’s near (thank goodness) and dear to our hearts. We think think it’s one of the best things about our city (and pretty much, Planet Earth, too). So Hell Yes to doing our part to celebrate and preserve it for us and for future generations. That’s why it’s a Hell Yes Project.
