4 GREAT Austin Acts touring through the mid-atlantic this winter!

Hey Everyone, just wanted to let you know that 4 GREAT Austin acts will be touring through the mid-atlantic this winter. I've seen each act numerous times, and I wouldn't recommend them to you if I thought these acts were medoicre. This is also a great chance to get a "taste" of the Austin music scene if you've never lived in Austin:

One Eyed Doll- seen them 3 times now, and they're the BEST LIVE ACT I've ever seen, period! A goth-metal  band, they have the wildest stage antics and stage persona I've ever seen, most entertaining act i've seen in a while. The singer pours every ounce of soul, emotion, expression, and energy and plays every show like it's her last. She's like Iggy Pop on steriods. Previous OED show I been to, the singer jumped into the audience, tossed a guitar at me, pours water and slaps a guy on-stage, kicks over her drummer's drum kit, and jumps on-top of her drummer. She also huggs ALL over her fans after her show =)
Awesome and HILARIOUS music video:
Tues Nov 29th & Jaxx Nighclub, Springfield VA

Seth Walker- He's a bluesman who sings like Ray Charles, and plays guitar like T-Bone Walker. His soulful music grooves, swings, and makes your foot tap. Must listen to any Ray Charles fan.
Sat Dec 3rd @ Glen Echo Ballroom

Gary Clark Jr.- Nephew of Austin blues legend, W.C. Clark, who wrote the song "Cold Shot" that Stevie Ray Vaughan made famous. he melds old-school blues with a more modern R&B flare. Sounds like Joe Louis Walker, Otis Rush, and Hound Dog Taylor
Fri Dec 16 @ 8x10 (Baltimore)
Sat Dec 17th @ Red Palace (DC)

Eric Johnson- Grammy winning guitar virtuoso instrumentalist. His version of instrumental fusion shred-rock melds rock, blues, country, and jazz together.
Sun Jan 8th @ Birchmere (Alexandria,VA)
Tues Jan 10th @ Soundstage (Baltimore)
