Today was a day for classic cars at the Lonestar Round Up. A friend and I visited the official car show at the Travis County Expo Center and the unofficial show on South Congress Avenue. It was a beautiful day, and there was plenty to see and do.
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!
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.
