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.

SATAN IS REALPERFORMED IN ITS ENTIRETY BY MCMERCY FAMILY BAND
Show 9:00PM

Please join us for a special night as the McMercy Family Band performs ‘Satan Is Real’ in its entirety. The classic 1959 gospel album by the Louvin Brothers set the world aback on its release, and has influenced (and perhaps, saved) generations of music-lovers, sinners, and regular folks.

via Wiki:
Don Yates of No Depression called the album a “bold statement of its title signified the uncompromising nature of the Louvins’ beliefs. Whereas much country gospel of the ’50s was filled with feel-good platitudes that reflected the general optimism of the time, the Louvins’ gospel songs mirrored their own fire-and-brimstone Christianity… the album is an essential document of a side of the Louvins’ music that was at least as important to them as their more famous secular recordings.”

Critic Scott Walden compared the Louvins’ music to the Velvet Underground; “Their comprehension of the tortured throes of a drunkard’s Satan-infested soul are no less profound than Lou Reed’s own understanding of a heroin junkie wrestling with a world devoid of meaning beyond the piercing tip of the needle… The depth is there in Satan is Real. This album transcends the immediate kitsch appeal of its cover. There is a reason why songs from this album have been performed by the more commonly accepted genius of artists such as Gram Parsons, Johnny Cash, and Emmylou Harris.”
Let’s get together and hold hands and sing our way to salvation, y’all.

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.

ABGB Debuts! The Big Fix 11p • Scott Collins 10p • Lolita Lynne 9p
Show 9:00PM

ABGB Debuts!
The ABGB is stoked to feature the best emerging talent from all corners of the Austin live music scene. The monthly series features a 3-band bill of our newest favorites making their ABGB debuts. Come over and sample a flight of our latest tasty selections. No cover, all ages.

The Big Fix 11p
We are a five piece, vocally driven, indie-rock band.

Scott Collins 10p
Scott Collins has had the privilege of gracing the most famous stages in the “live music capital of the world”. The Austin based singer-songwriter brings a blend of indie-folk and Americana to the stage. He displays an authentic and emotive element that draws on personal inspiration, and is reflected in his performances, both live and in the studio.

Lolita Lynne 9p
“Ever wondered what you get when you cross Latin lounge music with groovy synths? We didn’t either but once we heard Lolita Lynne we knew we had been missing out on one tasty combo. Vocalist Lolita Lynne saunters through the songs, oozing charm and mystery while her band provides the perfectly seasoned backdrop.” -KUTX

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

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.

ACLF Night 3 w/ Pocket FishRmen, Hickioids, Jean Caffeine and more
Show 7:00PM
FREE NIGHT AT THE FIESTA!
FRIDAY OCTOBER 12TH
THE ABGB
1305 W Oltorf St, Austin, TX 78704
ALL AGES – NO COVER
11 pm – Pocket FishRmen – Another Corn Loving mainstay, the Pocket FishRmen give exactly how many you know whats. Singer and lyricist Brant Bingamon has recently changed his focus from simian on human violence to the foibles of the health crises facing aging rockers, some of which was chronicled in the band’s thirty year/thirty song best of ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told’ which was released in late 2017 by Saustex.
10 pm – Hickoids featuring Frontier Dan – after bringing down the house at The White Horse last year the Hickoids decided to bring Frontier Dan (leader of his own act, The Frontier Circus) back to town from his home in Conway, AR for a command performance. Upon securing a crop-duster for his conveyance (Dan insists on flying direct) the ACLF is pleased to announce that Dan will indeed be live on stage with his corn-wielding amigos for a special set that will include an Arkansas Twist Contest.
9 pm – Misty White – longtime friend of ACLF ringleader Jeff Smith dating back to his mid-90’s residence in Memphis is making her first appearance at the Fiesta. Having made her home in Toulouse, France for many years the member of Memphis’ all-girl 80’s garage punk act The Hellcats and occasional drummer for Tav Falco and Townes Van Zandt has recently released a new album titled ‘Worth The Wait’ for the French imprint Bang Records. It’s a slice of folk-punk and garage with a Memphis edge. She will be backed this evening by Harvey McLaughlin and his band.
8 pm – Harvey McLaughlin – Harvey released an album for Saustex earlier this year titled ‘Tabloid News’. From San Antonio, the young songwriter has crafted a sound that reminds of the piano rock greats of the 70’s and 80’s like Warren Zevon, Randy Newman, Elton John and Tom Waits while still sporting a defiantly contemporary twist.
7 pm – Jean Caffeine – Ms. Caffeine has lived many lives in the American Underground, the first of which was codified on her 2017 album ‘Sadie Saturday Nite’, a musical memoir about coming of age in late 70’s San Francisco. In the years since she has fronted a number of acts, most notably the proto-alt-country Jean Caffeine’s All-Night Truckstop, and holds the distinction of holding what is believed to have been the first ever SXSW “day party” way back in the late 80’s. She’ll be joined this night by her band a will likely lean heavily towards the material on ‘Sadie’.
