Gary Clark Jr. @ The Moody Theater - 11/30/2012
KLRU's Austin City Limits is now finished filming Season 38 of the longest-runnning live music show. Before they wrapped up for the year, Gary Clark Jr., who landed on Rolling Stones' Best Albums of the Year list, came and did his Austin proud for the second-to-last taping. From ACLTV's site:
"I've been wanting to do this for like 16 years," the young guitar slinger commented before he began. "So let's have some fun!" There's an irony to that statement being followed by the downhearted "When My Train Pulls In," but the heavy blues riffs defied the lyrics' melancholy cast. The show kicked into high gear immediately afterward with the driving fingerpicked boogie of "Don't Owe You a Thang," and the hometown crowd settled into the palm of his hand. "@garyclarkjr is slaying @acltv right now mayne!!!," claimed tonythecuate on Twitter.One of Gary's next shows will be opening for the Rolling Stones in Brooklyn. See more pictures from the ACL taping, and a shot of the setlist (though the band actually jumped around), below.

Trombone (and sometimes 'Trumpet') Shorty Andrews & Orleans Avenue came and brought lots of brass (The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Austin Knights Brass Band) to ACL Live at the Moody Theater last night (2/16). Here are some pictures from the Austin show.
While this show was not a taping for the PBS show that tapes in the same Austin (City Limits) theater, it did happen less than a week before Andrews heads to DC to tape another show for PBS at the... White House!
Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews has been invited to perform at The White House on February 21st as part of the Black History Month celebration, In Performance at the White House: Red, White & Blues. Troy will be joining an all star cast including Jeff Beck, Gary Clark, Jr., Shemekia Copeland, Buddy Guy, Warren Haynes, Mick Jagger, B.B. King, Keb Mo, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, with Booker T. Jones as music director and band leader. The event will be taped for broadcast on PBS premiering Monday, February 27 at 9 p.m. ET (check local listings) and streamed live on www.whitehouse.gov/live , www.pbs.org/whitehouse and www.blackpublicmedia.orgMore pictures from the Austin show below...
In addition to his performance, Troy will also participate in a special education program earlier that day in The White House with Michelle Obama, Keb Mo and Shemekia Copeland.
