You can always find live music in the Lake Travis area and this weekend is no exception. If you’re a fan of the blues or just a fan of festivals, you will not want to miss the inaugural South Shore Blues Festival, happening this Saturday just west of weird at the Iguana Grill.
The weather and views of Lake Travis will be spectacular, seven Austin-based blues artists will be taking the stage, Mexican food and cold drinks with table side service, a Dia De Los Muertos costume contest…and you can buy an adult ticket for $15—say what?
The festival kicks off at 3pm with The Jacqui Walker Band and each band following will take the stage at the top of the hour, every hour. The headliner and 2013 Heart of Texas Blues Challenge Winner – J.T. Coldfire will bring his own style of blues starting at 9pm. The lineup in-between includes Mojo House, Skye Downing, The Every Day Blues Band, Swamp Bats, and Austin Rogue Gypsies—you can read more about each band and listen to their music here.
The South Shore Blues Festival was started as a not-for-profit festival aimed to help support and promote Austin and Lake Travis area musicians, charities, local businesses and artisans. There will be a variety of vendors on site along with the charities that will benefit from the festival including the Austin Blues Society, The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, and Housing Opportunities for Musicians & Entertainers.
