Encore Records is closing in September

Encore Records, a record and video store that’s been operating in Austin since the Clinton administration, will close up shop at the end of September.

“It is with a heavy heart that we regretfully inform you all that after 30 years of doing business here in Austin, we’ll finally be shutting down and ceasing operations at the end of September,” a post on the store’s official Facebook page reads.

The Austin Chronicle reports the store had struggled since moving to its downtown location from Anderson Lane in 2012.

According to the Chronicle, the store “faced a litany of challenges: being enveloped by construction, lack of available parking, a national reckoning of physical retail, and landlords priming the store’s property for redevelopment.”

As of August 25, the store’s entire inventory has been 20 percent off.

“We’ll be dropping prices even more next month,” the Facebook post says.

This week’s music picks: Graham Reynolds, Flynt Flossy, Carolina Story

Monday: Graham Reynolds at Dive Bar. Tucked away on Guadalupe Street just south of the UT campus, across from where the Dog & Duck Pub used to be, the Dive Bar is a cool hideaway hangout not generally known for live music. But Reynolds, one of Austin’s most talented and accomplished composers with extensive credits on Richard Linklater films, has been holing up here every Monday this month for workshop gigs with a handful of supporting musicians. The final night will feature horn player Mark Gonzales, singer Paul Sanchez, bassist Utah Hamrick and drummer Jeremy Bruch. Free. 8 p.m. 1703 Guadalupe St. diveaustin.com. — P.B.

Tuesday: Flynt Flossy with Turquoise Jeep at North Door. In a hip-hop landscape dominated by mumble rappers and hip-pop crossovers, Flynt Flossy drives his Turquoise Jeep crew way off the beaten path to drop a mix of catchy tongue and cheek dance songs laid over sparse electro beats and swaggering slow jams crafted to make you snicker even as you swoon. $15. 8 p.m. doors. 502 Brushy St. ndvenue.com — D.S.S.

Wednesday: Carolina Story at Cactus Cafe. Husband-wife duo Ben and Emily Roberts have been mainstays on the Nashville Americana scene for about a decade now, with a handful of releases including the new “Lay Your Head Down.” Their easygoing folk-rock songs and instantly pleasing vocal harmonies make for a nice pairing with local openers Beth Chrisman and Doug Strahan, known for their work with the Carper Family and Good Neighbors, respectively, but teaming up on this occasion. $10. 8:30 p.m. 2247 Guadalupe St. cactuscafe.org. — P.B.

Jimmie Vaughan to kick off Longhorn City Limits pregame concert series at UT

Do you bleed orange? Does your heart beats to the rhythm of rock ‘n’ roll? Well, you’re in luck. The University of Texas has launched a new game day concert series called Longhorn City Limits.

Jimmie Vaughan performs with the UT Longhorn Band in 2015.

Each UT home game this season will include a pregame concert on the LBJ Lawn outside the northeast corner of DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium.  The concerts will be free and open to the public.

The kickoff event on Sept. 8 features iconic blues rocker Jimmie Vaughan, who teamed up with the UT Longhorn Band for a Thanksgiving halftime show in 2015.

“You can’t get any more Texas than that,” he said at the time. “The whole thing is just incredible to me. I could’ve never dreamed it up on my own, to even ask something like that. And why would they even do it?”

Vaughan is thrilled to be returning to the Forty Acres.

“What an honor to play once again for The University Of Texas,” he said about the new concert series.

Local soul ensemble, the Nightowls, opens for Vaughan at the first concert with a set that kicks off at 3:30 p.m. Vaughan is scheduled to play at 5 p.m.

The University of Texas has partnered with Austin City Limits Festival producers C3 Presents for the series. Concessions during the pregame concerts will include Stubb’s BBQ and happy hour-priced beers and wine spritzers.

Long Center celebrates 10 years with free Grupo Fantasma concerts, goat yoga

The Long Center, turns 10 this year and the downtown performing arts hub is throwing a free, family-friendly bash to celebrate. The party takes place September 9 from 1 to 5 p.m.

Austin Latino funk maestros Grupo Fantasma.

The event will feature two live sets from Austin’s world class Latin ensemble, Grupo Fantasma. Seating for the shows is general admission and doors to Dell Hall will open at 1:45 and 3:45 p.m.

In addition to the music the Long Center has curated a roster of fun activities, including goat yoga presented by GOGA. (You can sign up for a slot to get your downward dog on with friendly goats here.)

The festivities will also include a bounce house, face painters bubbles and more on the Long Center’s front lawn.

Sound Style: Cultivate your ‘rebellious elegance’ at the RAS DAY vendor market

RAS Day, the annual east side festival hosted by husband/wife hip-hop duo Riders Against the Storm, has always been about more than just music. It’s a coming together of families, a celebration of community, a daylong, mind-body exploration carefully crafted to nurture the soul.

[cmg_anvato video=”3921654″]

The fifth edition of RAS Day is scheduled to go down Saturday at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard with cerebral rapper/activist/poet Saul Williams leading a bill that also includes powerful NYC rapper Nitty Scott, Afro-Brazilian dance duo Gato Preto and local electro-tribalists Trouble in the Streets.

Celebrating the event’s unique style, Qi Dada, half of RAS, curates a vibrant artist marketplace. Expect to see “things that are bright, that are fun, that are colorful,” she says.

We caught up with Qi Dada, alongside Happyfania Andrew of the multi-cultural clothing line Shavanthe and Amy Galvez Deayon of Bella Flambeau Mobile Boutique, to preview some of the wares.

Riders Against the Storm also stopped by the I Love You So Much podcast this week.

Qi Dada says her personal style is influenced by her affranchi roots. “There’s like a rebellious elegance. (That’s) what I’m feeling,” she says. “Holding a rebellion with a curtsy.” AMANDA VOISARD / AMERICAN-STATESMAN


Weekend music picks: Large times with Lyle Lovett, RAS Day, Hot Sauce and more

These live music events are worth braving the heat for.

Friday: Lyle Lovett & His Large Band at ACL Live. Might there be a new record from Lovett coming soon? It’s been six years since his last one, 2012’s “Release Me.” No word yet on more new music, but in the meantime, he’s been a reliable regular visitor to ACL Live with his much-loved Large Band. One thing he hasn’t done there yet is tape “Austin City Limits” since the show moved downtown; he did the very last taping at the old KLRU Studio 6A digs, and overall has appeared on the show more than a dozen times. This appearance is a standard concert and not a taping, but if and when another album does arise, a TV-show slot seems a sure bet. $49-$99. 8 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com. — P.B.

Saturday: RAS Day at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard. Cerebral R&B artist/activist/poet Saul Williams leads a bill that also includes powerful NYC rapper Nitty Scott, Afro-Brazilian dance duo Gato Preto and local electro-tribalists Trouble in the Streets. But the family-friendly Eastside get-down hosted by husband/wife hip-hop team Riders Against the Storm is about much more than music. There also will be workshops in yoga, martial arts and swordplay, a vibrant vendors market, a children’s market and a silent Afro-fit disco. And, of course, Riders Against the Storm will perform. $25 ($30 with Friday night Body Rock party at the North Door). 3 p.m. gates. 1106 E. 11th St. rasdayfest.com — D.S.S.

Saturday: “Stand With Russ” benefit at Antone’s. Russ Hartman, editor of the local ‘zine Austin Daze and longtime Austin music die-hard, needs a new wheelchair and the bands he’s spent decades supporting are chipping in to help. The new chair will allow Hartman to stand (and dance with all the ladies, he jokes on Facebook). The power bill features Latin funk all-stars Brownout, their acid washed sister act, Money Chicha, the Guy Forsyth Band, Greg Izor and more. They also promise special guests all night long. $25.7 p.m. doors. 305 E. Fifth St. antonesnightclub.com — D.S.S.

Sunday: Belle Sounds, Ali Holder at One-2-One Bar. Part of the South Lamar venue’s new “Wonder Women Afternoon Listening Sessions” series with host Barbara Nesbitt, this double bill teams two notable Austin acts for music and discussion. Singer-songwriter Holder’s Americana-oriented music has been featured on three albums since 2012, including last year’s “Huntress Moon.” There’s more of a pop slant on the new record “The Sea Within” from the Belle Sounds, which features Noelle Hampton and Emily Shirley as well as Hampton’s husband, ace guitarist Andre Moran. $15-$20. 3 p.m. 1509 S. Lamar Blvd. one2onebar.com. — P.B.

Little Joe y La Familia at SXSW 2018. Tom McCarthy Jr. for AMERICAN-STATESMAN

Sunday: Hot Sauce Festival at Fiesta Gardens. The salsa might be the hottest thing at this annual benefit for Central Texas Food Bank, but the Austin Chronicle has assembled a solid musical roster that will also bring the heat. The bill is anchored by five-time Grammy winner Little Joe y La Familia. It also includes performances from cumbia/salsa band El Tule, rockers Altamesa, DJ collective Chulita Vinyl Club and more. $5 donation to the food bank. 11 a.m. gates. 2101 Jesse E. Segovia St. austinchronicle.com/hotsauce — D.S.S.

ACL Fest late show roster includes Sylvan Esso, Odesza, St. Vincent, the National

[cmg_anvato video=”4465439″ autoplay=”true”]

If music in the park isn’t your thing, but you still want to get in on that Austin City Limits Festival action, then warm up those clicking fingers. ACL Fest just announced almost 40 late night shows.

Highlights include a series of Stubb’s shows with Sylvan Esso, the National and St. Vincent. The Red River amphitheater will also host a big electronic music bash featuring Odesza, Jai Wolf and Evan Giia. 

RELATED: How to hear ACL Fest artists without buying a ticket

The folks who started a Facebook group to protest ’90s singer, Lisa Loeb’s low billing on the festival lineup (she’s playing a kids set on the Austin Kiddie Limits stage) will be happy to discover that they can “Give Lisa Loeb the Crowd She Deserves” when she plays the Scoot Inn on Oct. 8 with Dizzy. Fellow ’90s rockers the Breeders will also play the Scoot, as will Canadian dream pop act Alvvays and indie rockers X Ambassadors.

Emo’s also has a solid set of bookings that include Puerto Rican rapper Residente, British soul collective Jungle (with Rhye) and Manchester Orchestra. Meanwhile the Mohawk hosts Parquet Courts, Amen Dunes and Arizona. NYC-based rockers Big Thief will also play the Mohawk with local powerhouse, Sweet Spirit.

Finally, the best ACL late shows are often the small ones. We predict the Oct. 5 Antone’s show with Japanese Breakfast and Molly Burch will be one of the first to sell out.

C3 Concerts E-list subscribers will have an opportunity to buy tickets on Wednesday, August 22 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. In order to be eligible to receive presale passcodes, you must confirm subscription to the C3 Concerts E-List at www.c3concerts.com/connect by Tuesday, August 21 at 11:59 p.m.

ACL Fest: The 2018 schedule is out. These are our toughest conflicts

[cmg_anvato video=”4383301″ autoplay=”true”]

The Austin City Limits Music Festival 2018, headlined by Paul McCartney, Metallica and Childish Gambino, takes place October 5-7 and 12-14 at Zilker Park. Festival organizers released the hourly schedule on Friday and sure, it’s a little early to be nailing down exactly where we plan to be when, but these are some of the tough choices we’re facing.

Noname at SXSW 2017. Erika Rich for American-Statesman


2:45 p.m. Alvvays (Miller Lite) vs. Noname (HomeAway). Sonically speaking, there’s a fairly vast gulf between the jazzy spoken word/hip-hop stylings of Chicago artist Noname and the dreamy pop cadences of Toronto’s Alvvays. But both acts feature strong female leads and indulge in sentimental emotional swells and we suspect there’s a fair amount of crossover in their crowds.

6:45 p.m. Father John Misty (Barton Springs) vs. Hozier (Homeaway). This is s showdown of thoughtful male singer-songwriters that will likely confound many fest-goers. Here’s the $265 question: Do you prefer your dudes ironic or sincere? Father John will wrap his melodic entreaties in thorny witticisms. Hozier will aim straight for your heart. (If you like your dudes less singer-songwriter-y altogether, head over to the Miller Lite stage where the best hip-hop boy band in America, Brockhampton, will throw down).

The Breeders perform Saturday, April 21, at Emo’s in Austin. Kyser Lough/For American-Statesman

3:30 p.m. Japanese Breakfast (Barton Springs) vs. the Breeders (Homeaway) vs. Sweet Spirit (weekend one only, BMI). As the New York Times declared last year, “Rock’s not dead, it’s ruled by women.” This is an amazing time slot for folks who like lady rockers. That is, if you can clone yourself. Twice. The tough call for most folks who are into strong front-women will be whether to take in the expressive indie rock of Japanese Breakfast or the fuzzed-out post-grunge of the Breeders. But we’d like to throw in a vote for the home team here. Sabrina Ellis’ glam pop explosion Sweet Spirit is one of the best rock bands in the country right now. Don’t sleep!

7:30 p.m. Nelly (weekend one only, Homeaway) vs. Residente (Barton Springs). Look, it will almost certainly be “Hot in Herre” as R&B rap crooner Nelly takes the stage, but with the blazing new single “Sexo” burning up the charts, we’re confident that Puerto Rican rapper Residente will also drop a steamy set.


6 p.m. Camilla Cabello (American Express, weekend one only) vs. Travis Scott (Honda). These artists inhabit different sonic universes, so this might not be a conflict for aggro-rap diehards and, you know, anyone over 30. But both artists are dialed into a youth movement that makes them superstars. We suspect a lot of teenage girls (and those of us who are teenage girls at heart) will struggle with which side of the field to stake out.

This week’s music picks: Rock and Restock Central Texas Food Bank with Tameca Jones

Look, we’re offering you an opportunity to start your weekend early AND help the Austin community.

Thursday. Emily Wolfe SAFE benefit at Stubb’s indoor. Wolfe took most of 2017 off to strategize and write new music for her debut full-length due out later this year, but she whet our appetites for more new tunes with last year’s single “Holy Roller,” a hard-driving blues rocker propelled by muscular guitar. This show is a benefit for the SAFE Alliance, a local nonprofit that serves survivors of sexual assault and exploitation, child abuse and domestic violence. One hundred percent of ticket sales go to SAFE. $20. 7:45 p.m. doors. 801 Red River St. stubbsaustin.com — D.S.S.

Tameca Jones performs at SXSW 2018. Erika Rich for American-Statesman

Thursday: Rock ‘n’ Restock at the Belmont. Austin’s queen of soul, Tameca Jones, puts on a spectacular show that’s worth the ticket price, but this benefit event for Central Texas Food Bank and the music patronage organization Black Fret also promises a special “super top secret headliner.” Opening the show is local band Shy Beast and DJ Mixer Rogers. $25. 6:30 p.m. doors. 301 W. Sixth St. belmontaustin.com — D.S.S.
