The Line-Up for 9 March 2018

I dashed across town, schlepped up the hill upon which the Laurie Auditorium sits as Senator Bernie Sanders wrapped up his remarks, forged forward to the Jazz for the Masses VI which is next Wednesday, March 14, without hearing him speak. I had music to upload, some successfully and some not, all in the effort of making this show, promoting a day of performances that's sure to delight at a newly-expanded Lazarus Brewing Co. at 1902 E. 6th St. (Have I laid the pitch on heavily enough?) This hour, minus the super dope new Nels Cline 4 song and the closing Mndsgn track, is a taste of what's to come this week.

16 the Olympus - s/t EP

16 the Olympus is a friendly outfit. There's a sense of epicness grasped for in the arch of their songs, but the effusiveness of the group seems to break through whatever gargantuan notions they may have. This seems to make sense for a group coming from San Antonio, Texas, the city with the tortilla chip on her shoulder. Yet this quintet is one of those local rare birds that can't be overlooked when checking out the landscape. Fortunately, they just released a five song EP shat shows them off well.

Nextbop's Jazz for the Masses VI at SXSW is in Two Weeks

Jazz for the Masses VI, Nextbop's annual unofficial day party at Austin, Texas' South by SouthWest music festival, is coming soon-- Wednesday, March 14th, to be exact. This year, we have moved to the Lazarus Brewing Co. on 1902 E. 6th St. The party, done in conjunction with Music for Listeners (who have a very impressive following three days at the same location), is probably one of our biggest events of the year and we're always happy to put together such a range of talent and entertainment, still put it under the large umbrella of the genre, place it in the middle of one of the most enveloping music festivals on the globe, invites all ages with no need for RSVPs, wristbands, or badges, and do so in a place where you could still conceivably find parking. We've got soulstress Madison McFerrin, crossover brass act The Urban Renewal Project, deconstructionists/reconstructionists Graham Reynolds and Golden Arm Trio, and more playing. Check out the lineup, poster art, and more below!

We've made rumblings of it over the last few weeks, trying to get all the details in order, and when it comes to putting on an event during Austin, Texas' hectic South by SouthWest festival, there are always details to put in order, but it's time to make known that Nextbop's fifth annual Jazz for the Masses unofficial day party during the South by SouthWest music festival will be taking place Wednesday, March 15th, from 1-7pm at El Sapo Botanas and Burgers at 1900 Manor Rd with performances from Braxton Cook, The Project H, The Whale, Troker, and NORI featuring vocalist Akina Adderley.

The Jazz for the Masses day party, otherwise known as El Sapo Turns 2! is this Wednesday, which means this is the last possible push over the air I'm making for this awesome show we put together every year. This week's Line-Up is that day's lineup so if you like this hour and you're doing SouthBy, you should definitely drop by El Sapo at 1900 Manor Rd. and check out the show.
