Hello! I’m Jennifer Leduc and I’ve been a resident and lover of Austin and its music scene for 17+ years. I’ve also been a contributor here at Side One Track One since October 2011. My actual birthday (January 6th) falls during Austin Free Week, which is a fantastic gift as a local music fan, but circumstances didn’t allow holding an event during that time. So, I’m celebrating a little later than usual.
Please make a note to drop by Studium (on East 5th St, a block from I-35) this Saturday! The show is free and open to the public. Music will kick off with the adventurous indie rock of Royal Forest. They will then be followed by the dynamic duo of Demitasse performing their harmonic brand of downbeat acoustic pop. I couldn’t resist inviting them as members, Erik Sanden and Joe Reyes (who also play together in Buttercup) played at my 40th birthday bash. The party continues with the melodic sounds of Good Field. In spring 2012, I fell under the spell of their mellow, swirling guitar pop. It’s hard to articulate why I love their songs. They just simply make me happy. The final band and musical icing on the cake is Feverbones. When I first heard them, I was an instant fan of their groovy, colorful indie pop and blown away by their top notch musicianship. Whether you can stay for one band or all four, I would love for you to stop by and say hi. Kudos and thanks to all of the bands and the staff at Studium and Punctum Records.
