Autobus Records Showcase at Stubb's

Some of my favorite blogger-types have teamed up with one of my favorite local record labels to showcase some of Austin's most talented artists at Stubb's tonight. Obviously, this is going to be an inside show as I can't see these up and coming artists filling the amphitheater...YET. Autobus Records is home to two of Bloggy's favorite locals, Sunset and Brazos. Sunset won't be performing tonight but you can catch the beautiful songcraft of Brazos. Full details about tonight's Do512/Covert Curiosity event can be found here. In the meantime you should soak in this Brazos song.

So, to be honest I am not YET familiar with most of the artists showcasing tonight, but I do know it will cost $7 to get in and that includes free Lone Star till it runs out. So, that's always nice, however as someone who also works in the service industry might I add that the tip is NOT included in your FREE drink. Make it rain people.

Mark David Ashford seems to be the 2nd tier headliner tonight so let's check out his sound shall we?

Wow, I really liked that song. See people this is why you have to go tonight, Autobus has some amazing songwriters and performers and the intimate feel of Stubb's inside stage will be the perfect setting to hear what these artists are really talking about. Unless you get too distracted by the free beer and can't managed to STFU. But that's neither here nor there.

Are you feeling the vibe of this label yet? These videos on represent three of the artists who you'll get to experience this evening. Also, I haven't even mentioned the fact that Martin Crane from Brazos will be doing a solo set to lead in to the Brazos set, which should be pretty much amazing. Here's one more BloggyCam vid for the road.
