Erika Wennerstom @10:00pm – $12 cover at the door @9:30pm. No advance tickets. 21+ only.
Erika Wennerstrom never really considered performing as Erika Wennerstrom, despite being the heart of Heartless Bastards, the only member of the Austin-based indie rock band of which she remains the lone original member.
As a songwriting teenager during a time when GBV and Brainiac were packing local bars and three of the Breeders were still in town, Wennerstrom used to sneak into clubs to check out the scene. “I would just see those people—my music heroes—hanging out at the bar like everyone else,” she remembers. “I could see myself in them. It gave me inspiration to do my own thing.”
