Weirdo’s Inaugural Show w/ Kevin Fowler 5/8
I don’t know if you guys have heard of Weirdo’s before, but for a while now, it’s been an expansive indoor/outdoor bar sitting on 2 acres of land right off of North Mopac and Parmer. With the summer approaching, Weirdo’s has decided that, because they sit on some prime property and because they have a pretty darn good taste in music, they will become a brand new LIVE music venue. And THIS Saturday is their kick-off show. On May 8th, the outside venue is bringing some of country’s hottest acts: Kevin Fowler, Bleu Edmonson, Kevin Smith & Half Dead, and Mike Kelly, for one evening of food, fun, beer, and music!
Looking at this night’s line-up, you can expect some amazing things from the likes of:
Mike Kelly–Raised in New Mexico, yet currently residing in Austin, this country rocker has had more life-changing experiences than most of your parents can attest to. His album, “Waking the Dead,” consists of 12 songs that Kelly penned in the midst of a pretty serious life scare when he dealt with congestive heart failure. Thankfully, now recovered, he comes to us with heavy influence from some of Texas’ greatest songwriters (Robert Earl Keen and Charlie Robinson) and an incredible sound.
Kevin Smith & Half Dead–He spent his moldable years hanging out at famed Austin venue, Liberty Lunch, and watching Roky Erikson walk by his house every day, so, it comes as no surprise that Kevin Smith picked up the guitar and started a music career. This career has seen him travel the country and the world over the past 10 years, and to Smith, he’s just getting started. He comes to the stage with honed songwriting skills and a powerful voice that harks “back to a time in music history when singers like Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash reigned supreme.”
Bleu Edmondson–Fusing country rock and Texas soul, Bleu Edmondson has been writing songs and playing music for over 10 years now. Since coming onto the scene as an unknown talent back in 2000, he has quickly become a staple on the Texas music circuit, selling tens of thousands of records. Now perched on the edge of a national breakthrough, he returns to Austin on Saturday with the skills to completely revive the Texas country scene.
Kevin Fowler–With 5 studio albums and 3 singles on the Billboard list of Hot Country Songs, Fowler has slowly become one of the hottest American country music stars on the charts since his first album release back in 1997. Ever since his father introduced him to country music as a child, he’s had music in his veins, and after becoming skilled in piano, guitar, and songwriting, he moved to Austin to kick off his career. Over the years he gained a reputation from his weekly gigs on 6th street to eventually signing with music legend, Clint Black’s, independent label (Equity Music). Now on Lyric Street Records, Fowler comes to Austin with two hot new singles and a guaranteed crowd of loyal fans.
