Joe Nick Patoski will be at Record Town on Saturday, May 11 from noon until 3:00 pm to discuss Texas music and promote his new book “Austin to ATX – The Hippies, Pickers, Slackers & Geeks Who Transformed the Capital of Texas”. Joe Nick is a native of Cowtown and has been the leading authority on the beauty of Texas and Texas Music for over 40 years.
The last time we heard from the Quaker City Night Hawks, they were traveling the country in support of their Lightning Rod Records debut, El Astronauta, an album that mixed the greasy strut of 1970s rock with doses of down-and-dirty Texas blues, science fiction, and Bible Belt boogie. The guys were Texans by birth, but their music whipped up its own geography.
The Mitch Laing Band will be at Record Town on Saturday, January 26th from 3:00 to 5:00 pm for an acoustic in-store gig!
