Elaine Greer CD Release Show Tonight at 29th Street Ballroom
Houston native Elaine Greer now lives and makes music right here in Austin. The 23-year-old indie-folk songwriter and guitarist joined her first band, the short-lived Bluebirds, in 2005 and currently plays with local quintet The Sour Notes, but has mostly done solo work for a few years now. After making a series of lo-fi projects, she recorded an EP, the six-song Making Plans and Going Places (2009).
Greer just released Annotations, a meticulous blend of her earlier sound and sharp, solid arrangements with flawless harmonies. And to celebrate, she’s assembled some of the best local talent to perform at her CD release show tonight at the 29th Street Ballroom at Spider House, 2906 Fruth St. This will surely be one of those “really big show” occasions: MaryAnn and The Revival Band, Greer and friends, Agent Ribbons and Monarchs in the ballroom, and Pink Nasty, Megafauna, The Sour Notes and Quin Galavis on the bar stage.
The music begins at 9 p.m. Recommended.
