Hope everyone had a good weekend, hard to return to work this morning or is it just me.

Oh okay, I see, all these vids are from the Austin music scene.
I will say its not fair to compare the Columbus music scene to the Austin music scene, it's like comparing a Porsche Cayman to a HotWheels car.
Great vids though, thanks.

I like the Austin videos myself... and. again, for the record, this is not any "competetion".

I write and sing what I feel, just as you would if you could, Commando, just as the Columbus-Phenix City performers do so well, and just as the Austin performers do so well.

And you can bet your life I'll "keep trying"... a real poet, artist or somgwriter has no choice, we have to continue creating.

Maybe you should try and get to play at Threadgills in Austin, Will. It will get your name out there and known among like minded musicians.

That nails it, for sure...

One of my oldest friends and his family live out in Austin, Jay Jay, and I was just daydreaming about possibly taking a vacation out that way sometime soon... Austin has always appeared to be an inspiring place that sure does bring out some splendid talents.

You should take a bus out there immediately Will. We can visit you on the Austin Tx. Topix.
I'm sure you would be a hit in a place where fresh music is appreciated more.
I'll let you know when I arrive, "Hank".

No, Austin, like Athens has had a thriving music scene since the 1970s, while the Columbus-Phenix City music scene can basically be traced back to the founding of The Loft a few years ago.

No, it isn't a contest to find what scene is "better", just the fact that creative people are rising up and making themselve heard, contributing their creative works.

Definitely Threadgill's is a fascinating place... and nothing near here is quite like it:

http://threadgills.com/history.php

***

Let’s face it. No one ever would have said “Keep Austin Weird” if Threadgill’s hadn’t made it weird in the first place.

When bootlegger and country music lover Kenneth Threadgill opened his Gulf filling station just north of the Austin city limits in 1933, he had more on his mind than just pumping gas. After all, just months before he had stood in line all night to be the first person to own a beer license in the county. And soon after, his joint would become a favorite for traveling musicians interested in grabbing a drink after their gigs.

The quintessential beer joint continued to flourish into the sixties, and changed with the social climate of the era by inviting the folkies, hippies and beatniks to his Wednesday night singing sessions with open arms. Threadgill’s love for people and music smoothed out the conflicts that usually occurred when longhairs crossed paths rednecks, and because of this, a new culture tolerance emanated from the tavern, which had a profound effect upon its patrons and the music that came from it.

Not to mention it was here that Janis Joplin developed her brassy style that would propel her to become the first female rock and roll superstar.

One heck of a venue, indeed.

I have been to Threadgills in Austin before, I had lunch there and the food was great.
It's a few blocks from a park by the river that has a statue memorializing Stevie Ray Vaughn.
There are many places that have live music at night, I had to go there for 10 days for training for my job about 3 years ago and enjoyed my time there.
Maybe you should try and go play a few shows there.

Yikes... I see that my post on the Jo-Lin Family Restaurant was still on my copy-paste...

A heck of a contrast, Threadgills & Jo-Lin's Family, eh?

I don't know Nakia personally but he is indeed a visionary singer-songwriter.

I always liked Stevie Ray Vaughn and that blues think although sometimes his music is repetitive, thats the problem with simple music like the blues.

You really live in the Druid Hills area?
