For such a short life, Gram Parsons sure has had a major influence on the Alt.Country music in this country. Parsons would have been 64 years old yesterday. Since The Americana Association is holding it's 4 annual Birthday Hoot for Parsons tomorrow at Threadgrill's in Austin, I thought that I would do a birthday tribute to start today's show.
Beyond that we have some great live music playing town this weekend. Tomorrow at the WOW hall we have the Harvest Hoedown featuring Danny Barnes, The Emmitt Nershi Band and Great American Taxi. This is bound to be a great show since all of these musicians have played with each other in the past, so I looking forward to some group jams.
Tonight, we have Brown Chicken Brown Cow String Band opening for the Blackberry Bushes over at Sam Bond's Garage. When I saw that BCBCSB was coming back to town I contacted them and asked if they would come in and perform on my show this afternoon. They are touring behind their 3rd album "...It's A Deep Subject" which I have yet to listen to, and I sure I will play on future Routes & Branches.
