Summer is now in full swing and with kids out of school the events around town are really heating up! Below we have put together a list of our favorite events happening across Austin in June.
PHOEBE HUNT & THE GATHERERS W/ SHAKEY GRAVES, THE BROTHER BROTHERS - 6/2/17
An accomplished Americana instrumentalist with foundations in jazz and swing music, Phoebe makes an impressive creative leap with Shanti's Shadow, available June 2. It’s the culmination of a five year journey that has taken her from her Austin roots through Music Row, Brooklyn, and even to India to study with seventh-generation master violinist Kala Ramnath. Along the way, Phoebe found her voice and delivered her most inspired set of songs to date. Tickets available here.
