Save the Earth Day Weekend
Local bands and local entrepreneurs are calling on music fans of all ages to join the party, and help save the planet in the process, by showcasing a one-off gig at Tavern on Main. Save the Earth Day Weekend the first of its kind and will feature a host of local artists, musicians, and brewmasters alike.
Fans can revel in a rare appearance by Uncle Lucius frontman Kevin Galloway, rock with Madra, featuring Rory Hancock, son of Texas songwriting legend Butch Hancock, and bid a Texas-sized farewell to Lew Card, as the beloved musician is set to make his final appearance in the Austin-area. Popular local artists like Bukka Allen and Mayeux and Broussard round out the soundtrack; meanwhile, rock stars of the Texas craft brew scene will wash it all down. Fan-favorite breweries Real Ale, Pedernales, Oasis, Middleton, and Karbach Brewing Company are among those sponsoring the event, with free tastings offered throughout the weekend.
Buda restaurant/music venue The Tavern on Main and BioIntegrity.net have organized the showcase as part of Earth Day awareness, promoting local artists while promoting a worldly cause.
The weekend also features a “mini-fest” of young talent. Up-and-coming bands will kick things off Saturday around noon, so parents are encouraged to bring the kiddos and get ready to rock in the name of Mama Earth. In between sets, music fans can cheer on their favorite athletes who are bringing the heat and some serious cuteness. The 19th Annual Buda Country Fair and Wiener Dog Races will be held the same weekend, just a short walk over to Buda City Park.
