Kevin posted a notice on Facebook today that Soulhat will perform at Continental Club-Austin on Wednesday, February 8. The show starts around midnight. Cover is $8. 1315 South Congress Ave., Austin. 512-441-2444.
Happy new year to everyone on the internets! We hope you survived NYE with little more than a minor hangover. It was noticeably slow around here for a few weeks, but life has picked up with FREE WEEK shows here in Austin. And good news is Kevin just announced that he’ll be performing live on January 22 at Hotel Vegas with details forthcoming.
In other news, the Austin Chronicle has released the list of nominees for this year’s class of the Austin Texas Music Hall of Fame. The list includes Joe Rockhead, the band that officially introduced Bob Schneider to many of us. Be sure and grab your ballot cast your vote for them (Soulhat was already inducted in 2006), but also take time to write-in Little Sister/Sister 7, who deserve to be there as much as anybody.
This week, Kevin is due to play two shows at Austin’s venerable Continental Club. On Wednesday, 12/7 catch the Kevin McKinney Band, at midnight after Jon Dee Graham. Cover is $8. Then on Thursday, 12/8 it’ll be Black Sabbath night with McKinney (Whack Sabbath). Also at midnight. We suspect this might mean Adam Bork is in town, but you’ll have to show up to find out.
Its been about ten years since Soulhat last performed at Southwestern, the college where the band was formed back in 1990. On November 5, they the classic lineup reunited for a two-hour “unannounced” show during Southwestern’s homecoming and reunion weekend. About 200 people saw the band performing a nice cross-section of their repertoire, mixing-up old tunes like Old Man Ken and Garbage Man with barn-burning renditions of the stuff that made them famous – Psychological Bone, Wiggin’ and Bonecrusher. The band closed the night with “Love Me Now.” See a couple of photos here and here.
