Been a slow summer here in Austin. The mercury touching triple digits every day has presumably been keeping a lot of folks away. Not much in the way of (OKOM) touring acts coming through with the exception of Scott Miller (audio of his Cactus show) a few others that we weren't able to attend.
Some of the shows we have been able to attend included the Brock Zeman (Canadiana), Flatcar Rattlers (bluegrass), Roger Alan Wade (of Jackass notoriety), Austin Homegrown (local country/blues/reggae rockers), The Memphis Strange (former Stillwater Pioneers rocking it up) and the Happen-Ins (former Dedringer Sean Faires' new group). Here's the recordings from some of their performance.
