“I’ve Got This Guitar; Damn Right I’m Gonna Use It” – Christine Renner on Local Licks

Christine Renner was in the studio for Local Licks on Tuesday.  Her new EP Heartbreaker comes out Saturday, and she’ll be celebrating the release of it Saturday with a show at Empire–it’s also her 22nd birthday that day!


Christine Renner – “Sweet”  She made the backdrop for this video herself–she said she wanted it to look like backstage at a Joan Jett show in 1981.  I think she succeeded!

We also played the title track from her EP, “Heartbreaker”

13th Floor Elevators – “You’re Gonna Miss Me”  There is a tribute album coming out for the late Roky Erickson, called May The Circle Remain Unbroken.  It features artists such as Billy F Gibbons, Gary Clark Jr. and Eve Monsees, Jeff Tweedy, The Black Angels, and many more.  And this Sunday at Waterloo Record at 4:00 there will be a listening party/autograph session with The Black Angels, Eve Monsees, and Charlie Sexton on hand.

Pretty Little Thieves – “The Death of Anton Newcombe” They’re playing this Friday at Cenote Black Lodge on Cameron Road

Alpha Rev – “Crystal Colorado (Bloom) Alpha Rev play Saturday at Haute Spot in Cedar Park at Rosefest, a benefit for “To Cure A Rose.”  It’s all to help Alpha Rev songwriter and frontman Casey McPherson’s daughter, Rose, who suffers from a rare genetic disease.  Doors at 4:00 pm.

Kyote Radio – “Color” from their upcoming album Real Crime, set to be released on August 27th

Kevin McKinney – “Dreaming Ain’t No Good”

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real – “Wildest Dreams” (A Few Stars Apart) I can’t recommend their live show enough.  Just a handful of tickets remain for the show November 9th at ACL Live.
