It’s Friday, and you need something to do. You’re in Austin, looking for a great show. Problem solved, you should be at Cheer Up Charlies for the anticipated release of Alex Napping‘s debut LP, courtesy of Punctum Records. It’d be easy to just say, go see Alex Cohen play; she and the band are great. And that’s very true. But, in order to draw a solid crowd, you’ve got to have some great opening acts, like Big Bill, Soft Swells and Lowin. Big Bill‘s oddball garage rock never fails to impress. Soft Swells are on the trustworthy label, Modern Outsider (local label!). Lowin, well, let’s just say this is one of the next big things to get out of Austin. Solid bill from start to finish. Get there at 8 in time for things to kick off!
