The Coveters/Suzanna Choffel’s Birthday Bash @Momo’s
If there is one thing March can be counted on for, it’s good music and plenty of things to celebrate. Both are combined at Momo’s this Thursday, March 4, with an incredible lineup that is sure to provide the perfect warmup for the musical festivities waiting for us right around the corner..
Tyrone Wells is an amazing talent known for his earnest and melodic songwriting. His unrivaled work ethic and emotionally saturated sound caught the attention of Universal, and he released Hold On in 2007 as his major record debut under the label. It wasn’t soon after that his songs became sought after for by shows such as “Grey’s Anatomy” and “One Tree Hill.” His latest release, Remain, proves to be another pop/rock triumph, showing new passion and a powerful voice difficult to forget. With him is Tony Lucca, a singer/songwriter whose heart and hands are planted deep within the music industry. Not only has his own music been featured both on the big and small screen, Lucca has also collaborated with acclaimed artists such as Joss Stone, Josh Kelley and Jason Mraz. Lucca’s latest album, Come Around Again, delivers audiences something immediately timeless, both modern and classic all at once.
Although a very new band in the Austin music scene, The Coveters are already receiving very positive attention from music critics. Perhaps this stems from the fact that the group contains some very recognizable names to anyone who keeps up with local talent. Vocalist Suzanna Choffel’s sweet but sultry voice has been a favorite on the Austin singer/songwriter circuit for quite some time, and it would be difficult to be an Austinite without having heard guitarist Ed Jurdi jam in the band that is quickly growing to be one of the city’s more exciting acts, Band of Heathens. They join equally talented musicians Dan Dyer, Warren Hood, Brad Houser and Jeffery Botta to create a must-see musical supergroup. This is their first full band show, and it should be an exciting one.
Ainjel Emme is a golden indie vocalist who, though a frequent traveler, settled herself in Austin in 1991 and now considers this city to be here true home. Her first album Heartache is Boring was self-produced and released in October of 2003 and immediately received high praise both from local and national critics. After a few years of quiet, she now reemerges, bringing us back her soulful and evocative sound with her second independent album, Songs to Pass the Quiet Hours. It will be good have this voice back on the scene.
A high-energy band from Fort Worth, TX, Josh Weathers and the True Endeavors present audiences with an exciting fusion of rock and soul that is sure to keep everyone moving. Orginally formed in 2004 with the final members being added in 2008, this outfit takes inspiration from classic country, Motown, and rock n’ roll legends such as Patsy Cline, Michael McDonald and Van Morrison. The resulting medley is something that must be experienced live to be truly appreciated.
Tyrone Wells and Tony Lucca start the show out at 8 pm, so make sure to come out early and ready to be entertained. Tickets are only $8, but visit the Do512 event listing to RSVP for a chance to win one of three pairs of FREE TICKETS.

We’ll see you there!
