Collin Herring @ Mohawk (7/7)

herringA truly under-appreciated new face to the alt-country world, Collin Herring is returning to Austin for a show at Mohawk on Tuesday night.  The singer-songwriter will be joined on the stage by Tyler Jordan and Legs Against Arms.  Tickets will be sold only at the door for $6.  Here’s that song I still can’t get enough of “Punches”.

Eef Barzelay @ Mohawk (6/18)

Eef Barzelay, alt-country great and lead singer of Clem Snide will be playing Mohawk on Wednesday with a few other up and coming artists. Eef is touring in support of his new album Lose Big which hits stores tomorrow. Promising opening act Collin Herring wrote what could be one of my favorite songs of the year “Punches”. This should be a good way to spend your Wednesday evening. Check out Mohawk’s website to get tickets.

Here’s the title track off Eef’s new album Lose Big and that great track “Punches” from Colling Herring:
