Thursday Night the 9th between 8pm & Midnight: SHINYRIBS - Gulf Coast Museum
The Gourds' frontman Kev Russell has had a side project for a few years now, to help provide an outlet for his huge well of material. But to throw in a little curveball, he ends Gulf Coast Museum with a ukulele version of "If You Don't Know Me By Now". Featuring a revolving lineup of Austin talent backing him up, this is Shinyribs' second album ("Poor Peoples' Store" became a WNCW hit from their first.)
Here's what the late great Doug Sahm had to say about Kev: "There are two kinds of people in Texas - those that got West Texas Dust, and those that got East Texas Rust. You got both of 'em!"
