Peter, Bjorn & John in Austin

Well kids, Peter, Bjorn and John play Antone's in support of their latest LP, Gimme Some tomorrow night. However, the boys are already in town and you can catch Peter Moren playing a solo set at Ruta Maya, of all places, tonight. Tickets for the Ruta Maya gig are only $5 so I'd get on that before they're gone. For those of you who don't know, Ruta Maya is just a little coffee shop in south Austin, just a block or two from Bloggy HQ last night was "Drum n' Bass Night" and tonight they have Peter Moren solo. I feel like there is a story behind that booking but I don't know it. Unfortunately, if you don't already have tickets for the full-band performance at Antone's Wednesday, you are out of luck, as it is sold-out. Don't say I didn't warn you though, my Planning Ahead: Endless Ticket Links post included the Peter, Bjorn and John show BEFORE it was sold-out. So there!

You should check out Peter, Bjorn and John's blog linked above the break. It's pretty evident that they are enjoying their time here in Austin. Check out their post about our beloved Barton Springs Pool. It's pretty cool that PB&J's tour schedule is arranged in a way that allows them to actually enjoy the places they are performing. So often, artists only have time to sleep, eat and perform in the cities on their tours.

There is no opening act listed for the Antone's show, I have a hard time believing that there isn't one but if there isn't that show is going to end early, so plan accordingly. Who knows, maybe they'll just play an extraordinarily long set with extended remixes of Young Folks?
