    McGonigel's Mucky Duck presents Lost and Nameless Orchestra - Reed Turner (Double Bill) They may call themselves Lost & Nameless, but all it takes is a few notes for listeners to recognize this foursome is anything but With original compositions featuring complex, turn-on-a-dime arrangements and performing histories dating to childhood, the members of this Austin-based band are seasoned professionals who whip up an unforgettable sonic whirlwind wherever they play On their new release, Empty Spaces (March 18, 2014), there’s a song title that sums up their contemporary folk-rock sound perfectly It’s called “Little Tornado” Filled with staccato rhythms and instrumental intrigue, it’s a charmer — just like the band that performs it “The latest feel-good collections of songs from this country-folk quartet might jolt you into a full-blown foot stomp” — Austin Monthly “Empty Spaces shows a promising start to the young musicians’ careers Well received performances at Folk Alliance and South by Southwest, suggest that Empty Spaces is the start of something good” — No Depression “Right from the get-go you know this is going to be an interesting listen” — Twangvillecom “Empty Spaces by Lost & Nameless is a little different from much of what is being released today and is an album worth exploring” — Cashbox Music Review “They play an interesting style of folk rock bordering on Pop and Americana Interesting also describes their musical pairings - organ, fiddle, guitars, lap steel, mandolin, accordion, banjo, bass - basically you never know what you will get in any one song” — MyJoogcom Reed Turner’s wandering spirit has led him to live and travel all over the country, but it wasn’t until he returned home to Austin, TX that he found his true voice; one that is simple yet evocative, intimate but universal, and ultimately true People are taking notice - CMA’s official magazine named him one of their Top 20 “Who New to Watch in 2013”, and he followed that up by winning the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival’s Troubadour Competition On his newest album GHOSTS IN THE ATTIC, Turner lends his voice to songs that run the stylistic gamut, while staying grounded in the Americana roots he’s become known for The “gorgeous new album” has received much critical acclaim, with one reviewer writing that Turner has “Americana poetry one might expect from the lyrics of The Avett Brothers, and an entrancing intimacy reminiscent of Jeff Buckley” Rant ‘N’ Roll: Jazz, Jimi And Americana April 9, 2014 Ghosts In The Attic is eminently listenable, entertaining and totally engrossing to the point where you just want to play it over and over - Rant n’ Roll, Mike Greenblatt full story

    McGonigel's Mucky Duck presents a Wednesday Irish Session (Plus Patrice Pike)  Patrice Pike - Austin, Texas is known for its laid back, bohemian yet ultra committed music scene--something Austin native Patrice Pike immediately conveys She's been a professional musician since she was sixteen, but has maintained such a raw, down-to-earth quality and irrepressible talent that Billboard magazine proclaimed her "one of the finest up and coming contemporary rock singers in America" High praise--and richly deserved An award winning singer songwriter rocker with a punk edge, she's co-created numerous records and musical groups (including Sister Seven and Patrice Pike and the Blackbox Rebellion), toured all over the United States and Western Europe and just plain impressed those who've seen, heard and watched the talented woman And if deep musical aptitude wasn't enough, Patrice is a dedicated humanitarian who, in addition to other progressive endeavors, works with at-risk youth in Austin and abroad In both music and life, Patrice Pike truly is the real deal IRISH SESSION -  You can hear the lively blend of fiddle, flute and percussion from the muddy sidewalk outside the pub Inside, musicians pack the corner stage On the right are the fiddlers, three or four of them To the left are the bodhran drummers, holding their ancient Irish tom-toms like shields An acoustic guitarist strums the rhythm at center stage, with a couple of penny-whistle players blowing in his ears All the musicians are playing hard to be heard over the boisterous banter of patrons lifting pints of ale and stout malts at tables or at the bar A fiddler calls for The Cliffs of Moher, an instrumental known to Celtic musicians around the world This leads into a medley of traditional jigs and reels that inspires one lass to do a high-hopping ceili dance in a corner of the room An older man watches, smiles, claps along for a minute and orders another pint THE pub could be in Dublin or Belfast, where Irish folk musicians have passed down traditional tunes from generation to generation Or it could be in New York or Boston, where tight Irish-American communities have kept a bond with old-country culture But it's not It's right here in Houston's Upper Kirby district The scene is replayed with minor variations every Wednesday night at McGonigel 's Mucky Duck's long-running Irish session

    McGonigel's Mucky Duck presents The Washers Just as the pecan trees grow where they will, and the south wind blows warm, muggy air off the Gulf of Mexico most days of the year, The Washers have put somewhat of a stamp on the Texas coastal prairie For the past four years, the noise of clanging strings, loud singing of heartache or celebration, and the stomping of worn-out boots on hardwood floors of dives and dance halls has come from the band in the direction of anyone who will listen Their noise is familiar, yet most may find it a bit hard to pin it down Rhythmic elements of country music definitely abound, but those pieces can’t cleanly be picked away from something that is undoubtedly…louder Harmonizing lead guitar riffs take a listener back to rock and roll from decades ago, but most times they are juxtaposed by the jangling of acoustic strings And to confuse ears even more, they have three lead singers, and at any given point, there are up to four voices singing in unison! At any rate, The Washer’s sound isn’t forthrightly rock and roll, country, folk, or any other discerning genre you want to place it directly in…it bounces from each to the next, floats somewhere between, and fits easiest in the ever-changing boundaries of music called Americana The uncommon sound of The Washers is due to the vastly different backgrounds of its memebers, who are drummer Mike Faltysek, guitarist/vocalist Todd Janik, guitarist/vocalist Justin Wilcox, guitarist Dillan Dostal, and bassist/vocalist Matt Kopycinski

In conjunction with QFest, 14 Pews presents: SUNDAY, JULY 27 at 3:00pm IN THESE BOXES: A Live Performance by Dudley Saunders Directed/Performed by Dudley Saunders Free Performance Texas Premiere! A Q&A with Mr Saunders will immediately follow the program An uncommon mix of live music, narratives and video art exploring the human need to keep the dead from disappearing by holding on to their things, In These Boxes takes 12 objects left behind by the dead and weaves each of them into a video hallucination of the missing life Through the combination of video, song and stories Saunders (pictured) imagines the lives of lost people through the objects they left behind As he sings their stories at the front of the stage, the world of the vanished comes to life on the screen behind him In each community where he performs, he does a local call for these photos, and incorporates these into the video imagery accompanying the 12th and final song in the performance The imagined lost souls, and the documentary grief, combine to make one common body in which catharsis can finally take place – healing the private world along with the shared world we all live in Saunders and QFest invite community residents to take photos of objects that have inherited and can’t let go of, and then post them to Instagram with the hash-tag #InTheseBoxes or send them to directly to Dudley@dudleysaunderscom These personal contributions will then be incorporated into the final video art piece in the 14 Pews show; additionally, they will live in perpetuity online at wwwInTheseBoxescom, in what Saunders calls “a social media cemetery”  In these two ways, these emotional objects can become part of a living piece of art, rather than simply moldering alone in people's closets The piece is inspired by Saunders own AIDS-era history: “In the fall of 1991, my two ex-lovers died within two months of each other But what made it worse was realizing that everyone who remembered us together was also dead Their few objects were the only evidence that they had existed, and had meaning no one else could understand: how can you explain why an old spoon is important?” Saunders is a trans-disciplinary gay artist whose work explores the hidden lives of marginalized people: in performance art, video, fiction, documentary film and indie-folk music Dudley’s life as an activist was a subject in the recent documentary United in Anger: A History of Act Up, which also included his music This program was generously funded by The Mid-America Arts Alliance through its ENGAGE program

    Warehouse Live presents King Buzzo  Saturday, July 26 in The Studio With Emma Ruth Rundle and JD Pinkus King Buzzo, of the Melvins, tours in support of his solo acoustic album, This Machine Kills Artists  The 17-track release used no electric guitars, amplifiers or direct boxes during its recording  Buzz’s live performance is equally raw, with the legendary singer/guitar player armed with only his guitar and his quirky-yet-captivating stories Emma Ruth Rundle, guitarist in Red Sparowes and vocalist/guitarist in Marriages and The Nocturnes announces the release of her solo debut recording, Electric Guitar: One The album is a collection of guitar-based ambient pieces improvised and recorded over the course of 6 weeks while on tour with Red Sparowes in Europe in late 2010 The 30-minute album ebbs and flows as one continuous piece of music moving through six passages of textures, drones and melodies that rise, repeat and fade back into the ongoing haze JD Pinkus is mostly known for bass playing and vocals for the likes of Butthole Surfers, Melvins, Honky, Daddy Longhead, Helios Creed, amongst others  Pinkus ain't afraid to throw down his songs on banjo and guitar, as shown with his project, Pure Luck, that plays Texas ranch rodeos and 's**t kicker bars'  Traditionally a non-traditionalist, anything goes, like he smoked all his Blue Grass and is left with somethin more psychedelic he refers to as 'Burnt Grass'
