Arc Angels at Antone’s

The Arc Angels live at Antone's

The Arc Angels (Doyle Bramhall II, Charlie Sexton, Chris Layton, and Dave Monsey) rocked Antone’s for a two night stand this past weekend.  Doyle and Charlie have been so busy with other projects, it’s always nice when they have time to play Arc Angels shows.  Doyle and Justin Stanley (Eric Clapton) co-produced Sheryl Crow’s new album 100 Miles From Memphis (release date is July 20).  Doyle is touring with her in support of the album this summer and fall.  100 Miles is a significant shift for Sheryl towards more funk and soul-oriented music, evoking the likes of Delaney and Bonnie, Sly Stone, and Al Green.  For Sheryl, it’s not so much a departure from her previous musical trajectory but more of a return to her roots.  I cannot imagine enlisting any better funky, soulful producing talent for such a task than Doyle.  They’ll be in Austin at The Backyard on August 28 for what is sure to be an awesome show.  Charlie is still touring with living legend Bob Dylan.  They just wrapped up an extensive international tour and will be launching their North American tour in Austin at The Backyard on August 4.  Be sure to catch Doyle and Charlie when they come through Austin or a town near you with these great tours!

Sister 7 rocks Antone’s

Sister 7 rocked Antone’s this past Saturday night.  This old Austin favorite (Patrice Pike, Wayne Sutton, Darrell Phillips, and Rob Hooper) reunites every now and then to packed venues full of very enthusiastic fans.

I caught up with Patrice before the show to get the lowdown on rumors of more consistent Sister 7 shows.  She says the band is having an ongoing open dialogue about it being a more consistent thing, that it’s important for it to be sustainable and fun, and that feedback from fans is a big guiding force.  There were very quiet murmurs of maybe even a new Sister 7 record that could potentially get going after Patrice, guitarist Wayne Sutton, and bassist Darrell Phillips wrap up work on their own solo projects.  Keep your ears to the ground later this year for their new releases.

And be sure to come out to Antone’s in July for the next Sister 7 reunion show.

Sahara Smith opened for Los Lonely Boys at Antone’s this past Thursday.  Smart, talented, beautiful… what more could you ask for?  Sahara is a refreshing presence on stage, her sophisticated songwriting abilities belie her young age, and it sure doesn’t hurt that she has an all star team behind her, too.  She is backed by some of Austin’s finest musicians – Jake Owen on guitar, Will Sexton on bass and guitar, and Mike Meadows on drums and percussion.  She is managed by Kevin Wommack, was just signed to High Road Touring, and to top it off T. Bone Burnett is producing her debut album which will be released in August.  She’ll be opening for Mason Jennings on some select nationwide dates this summer and fall, so be sure and go check her out when she passes through your town.
