Summer in Texas:  Music on the Roof

It already feels like summer in Austin, and what better way to enjoy it than with live music on a rooftop deck with your friends.

Real Music Thursdays at 219 West
DMI, THOS, Billy, and Nick
Dart Music International and The House of Songs begin a monthly residency on the last Thursday of each month through August.  The setting is the beautiful rooftop deck of 219 West, which moved earlier this year to 612 West 6th Street, next to the old Katz and Momo's (Map).  Music begins at 8:30pm with bands representing the international cooperative spirit of DMI and The House of Songs.   

On March 31 we are very pleased to have some Austin musicians who really "get" both organizations.  

8:30:  The House of Songs presents Nicholas Ginbey

"Lyrically driven melodic acoustic indie-folk reminiscent of Daniel Johnston or The Modern Lovers"

10:00:  Dart Music International presents Billy Wilson

"Billy Wilson, the smooth and dynamic voice that fronts the much acclaimed Latin At Heart, has now begun to move into his own as a solo performer.  The latin undertones of his new sound is reminiscent of the large band but with the intimacy you would expect from a solo performance.  Expect songs about love, passion, and heartbreak, all delivered in that intense, melodic package for which Latin At Heart is known.  The talented singer songwriter is currently performing solo shows in and around the Austin area."

Every Thursday our own Michael Renner and Dave Dart will be bringing great live music to the 219 West deck at 8:30.  We hope to see you there all summer long for the amazing happy hour specials, breathtaking view of the city, and great music from some of Austin's best performers.
