So, Lady Gaga showed up to sing at Antone’s in Austin last night

Is there anything more Austin than a music superstar showing up for a surprise gig at a mystery venue? Yes, probably! But folks still love it when that happens, like with previous stealth performances by Garth Brooks and the Killers. Add Lady Gaga to the list.

After the “Million Reasons” singer blew the roof off of the Frank Erwin Center as part of the Joanne World Tour on Tuesday night, she stopped by Austin blues club Antone’s for an after-show, according to the singer and the venue on social media.

Yep, just like Austin360’s Deborah Sengupta Stith called it, Gaga joined musical collaborator Brian Newman for some fun after her regularly scheduled arena spectacle. One attendee at the show told Austin360 that the singer stuck to standards and left and then returned to the stage a few times. According to KXAN, the singer’s repertoire included the song “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love, Baby,” which certainly would bring a little of the jazz she left out of her Erwin Center show.

Other videos of the performance included a rendition of Cole Porter’s “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye.”

And yes, little monsters rejoiced.
