Gary Clark Jr.’s All-Star Revue kicks off the Blues on the Green series at Zilker Park
This summer, Blues on the Green returns to Zilker Park. In its 30th year, the Austin City Limits Radio-sponsored series launches on July 27 with Gary Clark Jr.'s Handpicked Homegrown All-Star Revue, followed on July 28 by up-and-coming local artists Mobley and Kalu & the Electric Joint.
As part of the revue show, Clark's band will accompany seven Austin artists: Jackie Venson, Jimmie Vaughan, Blackillac, Kydd Jones, Eve Monsees, the Peterson Brothers, and Suzanne Santos. Clark is likely to sit in with most of the artists, and he may perform a few songs of his own, though there is no set structure.
Since Gary is hosting it, we don't know what we will get, but I know it will be amazing.
During the 2019 Austin City Limits Music Festival, Clark spiced up his sets both weekends by inviting some of his favorite local acts (including Blackillac, Kydd Jones, and the Peterson Brothers) to perform with him on several songs. Clark has a long history of bringing local artists on tour to open his shows, such as Venson and Tameca Jones.
The show is free to the public at the beautiful Zilker Park in Austin.
If you plan to see a great free show, be prepared to park far and walk or catch some public transportation.
Also, bring a chair or a blanket, and I'm pretty sure you can bring a cooler with drinks.
However you decide to do it, it is sure to be a treat to see all these local artists on one stage.
I look forward to listening to some live music at blues on the green! How about you?
