One of my favorite Austin events has come and gone. We were lucky on Saturday to not get rained on so the bands could play in the park and at Spider House Cafe. Honk! TX was a wonderful festival, as usual.
The final event for Honk! TX this year was the Band Review at Pan Am Park. There were lots of people, instruments everywhere, sunshine, green grass, and live music throughout the day. I am looking forward to next year’s events.
Honk! TX is back in town for the weekend! This is one of my favorite festivals of the year with such good music. I watched several bands this evening at different locations along South Congress Avenue. My favorite band tonight was Gora Gora Orkestar from Boulder Colorado. They were great!
The final day for this year’s HONK! TX festival provided a parade through the streets of East Austin, followed by performances at the Pan Am Park stage. The weather was perfect and it was an excellent ending to this great annual tradition in Austin. I hope you enjoy all the photos!
More awesome bands and music today at the Spider House Amphitheater and Courtyard. Tomorrow will be the last chance to check out the HONK! TX festival with a parade and several performances on the East side of Austin.
My favorite HONK! TX band tonight on South Congress was Bramaya. The description on their website says, “Bramaya is the musical project of Austin-based West African master percussionist Abou Sylla. Named in honor of his father’s village, Abou’s band, Bramaya, combines new musical ideas and traditional West African rhythms.” They totally rocked the stage at Jo’s Coffee. I hope to see them perform again at the remaining two days of the music festival.
Dinner tonight was at Snack Bar on South Congress. I sat out on the patio so I could watch some of the HONK! TX bands perform – lucky me. My selections were the Black Bean Dip, Caesar Salad, and the Hibiscus Mint Iced Tea. Everything was great.
