Show Preview: Jackie Venson @ One-2-One Bar, 8/2
A week after a weekend of Hot Summer Nights with most local bands playing bills would mean a bit of downtime for show-goers this weekend…if this was any other city besides Austin, TX. There’s always some live music to get into here in the ATX, and this Friday’s choice for me will be our own Jackie Venson, who just got back in town after a bit of a tour through Europe and is bringing her loop-filled eccentric bluesy indie rock to One-2-One Bar for a night of homecoming celebration. Venson released her studio album,Joy, earlier this year to much acclaim and success, growing her already cult-like following of fellow fans of crisp guitar riffs, lovely soulful vocals and a radiant stage presence. Go scoop some limited tickets to this show tomorrow night — doors are at 8:30, show starts at 9pm.
