KUTX is teaming up with the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Austin Friday, October 9th for a live broadcast featuring some of the station’s favorite bands from Austin City Limits Music Festival 2015. Limited parking is available at the Four Seasons for $5, but the lot fills up quickly, so plan to arrive by 8:30am or earlier to make sure you get a spot. There is a parking garage across the street and limited street parking in the area as well.
A $10 donation at the door gets you a breakfast taco, granola bar, cup of coffee and some great live music. All proceeds from the event benefit the Seton Shivers Cancer Center at Brackenridge Hospital.
KUTX Live at the Four Seasons includes performances by:
9:30 am Son Little
R&B artist Son Little mixes 70’s inspired groove music and bluesy guitar riffs with seriously poignant messages. Inspired by the passing of two friends and the death of Trayvon Martin, Son Little is an outspoken advocate for young African-Americans.
10:30 am El Tule
Talk about the perfect festival act. Local party band El Tule fuses traditional Latin dance music like Merengue, Salsa, Tango, and with Reggae and Caribbean beats will definitely inspire you to shake a leg.
11:30 am Leopold and his Fiction
The brain child of songwriter Daniel James, Leopold and His Fiction turns roots rock on its edge with twinges of garage rock and gritty Detroit soul. The band has been working with GRAMMY nominated producer Chris Smith and promises their upcoming album will be one you won’t want to miss.
12:30 pm Shakey Graves
Who better to wrap-up our set at the Four Seasons than hometown hero Shakey Graves? Alejandro Rose-Garcia honed his lo-fi sound as a one man band with distinctive jangly guitar and tattered suitcase with kick pedal for percussion. In recent years Shakey joined forces with guest vocalist Esme Patterson for some killer duets and percussionist Chris “Boo” Booshada for a stronger more powerful rhythm section.
