Time Out, ft B-3 Master Leon Roberts @11:30pm, Lou Ann Barton @10:00pm – $12 at the door @9:30pm. No advance tickets. 21+ only.
“Although she doesn’t tour nearly as much as she probably could, Austin-based vocalist Lou Ann Barton is one of the finest purveyors of raw, unadulterated roadhouse blues from the female gender that you’ll ever hear. Like Delbert McClinton, she can belt out a lyric so that she can be heard over a two-guitar band with horns. She belts out her lyrics in a twangy voice so full of Texas that you can smell the barbecue sauce. She swaggers confidently about the stage, casually tossing her cigarette to the floor as the band kicks in on its first number. The grace, poise, and confidence she projects on-stage is part of a long tradition for women blues singers.” ~AllMusic.com, Richard Skelly.
Time Out, featuring B-3 Master Leo Roberts, is a funky soul jazz trio based in Austin, TX. The band members consist of Charles Couch on guitar, Leon Roberts on the Hammond B3 organ and Andy Beaudoin on drums. Together, the three musicians conjure up a vintage sound reminiscent of the fabulous Jimmy Smith bands and legendary Grant Green groups.
