Christy Hays & Her Sunday Best and The Austin Steamers Play Tonight at Hole In the Wall
After building a solid repertoire playing various shows around town with her band Her Sunday Best, Hays released her soulful 11-track debut, Drought, in September. Hays’ tales of love and loss are sung with great candor but also an unmistakable elegance. There’s an awesome contrast between the no-nonsnese lyrics and her delicate vocal delivery.
I’ve said before that The Austin Steamers deliver some of the best performances of original and traditional string-picking music with guitar, banjo, mandolin and stand-up bass. Each band member brings more than enough talent to launch into a bunch of solo sets to blow your mind, but it’s the collaboration of these individuals that brings extraordinary magic to the performance.
You have a chance to see both Christy Hays & Her Sunday Best and The Austin Steamers perform tonight at the Hole In the Wall, 2538 Guadalupe St. The music starts early at 8 p.m. Recommended to chase away the Monday blahs.
