Eric Sommer, Pop Americana Artist, heads from Austin to San Marcos, Texas for a Thanksgiving Day show a The Triple Crown. This s a show for everyone who needs a break from, family, family and family on Thanksgiving Day...
And dishes, dishes, dishes. And putting away leftovers and cleaning the table.
Folks in San Marcos can leave all that to the next day and bounce on over to The Triple Crown for an early show... just for them - Mr. Sommer takes the stage around 6 p.m.
San Marcos, Texas will get a little extra out of this as well. The venerable groove center of the East Texas Music Universe is arguably The Triple Crown, in San Marcos, and Eric Sommer will be there for two shows while chasing steers in the Land of Texas.
Mr. Sommer is in San Marcos on Thanksgiving Day, November 28th around 6 p.m. and again on December 11, 6 p.m. as well. The Triple Crown is located at 206 N Edward Gary St. San Marcos TX 78666.
Prepare, San Marcos. This is a little bit of slide, a bit of open tuning, a bit of Jerry Jeff, throw in some blazing acoustic lap-slap and neck bends... and top off with some John Lee Hooker flavored thumpin' and what you'll get is... vintage Eric Sommer.
And on Saturday, November 30th, Eric Sommer takes the stage for the evening at Wake The Dead, a listening room also located in San Marcos with a very easy atmosphere and great coffee and a rocking college crowd! Anyone who wants to see this remarkable player will have a few chances this holiday weekend.
Sommer is also the author of two collections of prose and commentary titled "Red Chairs" and "Black Pancake." Red Chairs celebrates the American experience with candid views of rural and industrial American life on the urban plains and the title poem is about "Waffle House." Black Pancake references a huge black thundercloud that hovered over the town of Newburgh, New York in the Hudson Valley.
These songs are visual fabric to the American narrative of freedom and creative expression, making message and content work effortlessly, interacting and weaving together a tapestry of sounds and emotions with superb technical skill and musical inventiveness.
The Slab Music Series in a unique music series whose inaugural shows begin this November and occur every Friday evening on "The Slab" which is at the far end of the South First Food Court located on The Slab at 603 W. Live Oak in Austin.
Eric started his musical career in the Boston area and has been a regular player on many national tours and showcases. He worked in Europe for two years on Danish, German and British rock stages, returned to Boston and formed The Atomics, a cult power-pop band in South Boston. His influences are as diverse as Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Steve Howe and The Ramones. Mr. Sommer's current project with power trio "The Solar Flares" shake up Chet Atkins and David Bromberg influences with those of Randy Travis and British Rocker Elvis Costello - a remarkable mix.
With open tunings, slide guitar, lap-slap tone guitar and a remarkably aggressive fingering style approach, watching Eric Sommer will make you jump out of your seat and holler for joy. There are very few players who have maintained this authentic American style of guitar and Eric Sommer is one of the very best.
