Austinites! There will be not one but TWO opportunities to see The Rogue River String Band reunited this weekend.
First, this Saturday morning at 11 AM at the South Lamar Alamo Drafthouse you can take part in an Austin tradition started by RRSB about 5 years ago: Jim Henson’s Emmett Otter’s Jugband Christmas! We’ll play a couple numbers from the movie, and a few other songs for the kids. Free show. Seats fill up fast. Please consider skipping this show if you don’t have kids with you. You can borrow the movie from one of us and instead see us at Thrice on Saturday night.
Show starts at 6 PM and includes Hot Club DeForke and Austin Family Jewels.
Check out the attached recording of Long Gone Lonesome Blues recorded at Fiddler’s Green just before we broke up (amicably).
