I decided to take a more local approach to live music last night. I am always up to see all of the touring acts that come through Austin but I rarely write about the homegrown talent. Last night I went to Continental Club to catch Gary Clark Jr, a 22 year old blues prodigy. What an amazing musician. You wouldn't guess that he is so young the way that he plays. If you are in Austin you probably know about him but for the rest of you, if you are ever in town take some time to come check him out.
Want to check out the new Killers video trailer, just click here. A trailer for a music video?
The CMJ music marathon has a very good line up this year, wish I could be down there. Such a long time till SXSW.
More info on Bloc Party including info on a track they played here at Stubbs about the London bombings.
I also have a new favorite blog for the collection, Rewriteable Content, great mp3's, great writing, check it out.
