No small feat

Yup, there are certain bars that I frequent. So do you. I am not afraid to wander in somewhere else, but hey, if the places you go play a diverse range of music, go.

One2One ) is definitely one of those places. I have said before, great bar staff, beautiful deck up top, cozy bar and wonderful stage inside. There was a recent charity fund raiser event to help out one of our local video directors after a medical event. The staff happily donated their time on a day off to do their part. Go and patronize this place!

Baby Atlas ) late, late night this was a sweet treat. A cross between Hendrix and Stevie Ray with a voice somewhere between (and maybe a touch of Christopher Cross). A bass player you would not want to funk with, or maybe would?! And a fine fine drummer. No! they are not trying to be double trouble, but their own incarnation of something beautiful and soul searing in Austin music. David Jimenez is quite awe inspiring as guitar and vocals, big man...surprising voice. Look them up and enjoy that amazing blend of rock/blues that those dead guys brought to us and Baby Atlas revives.
