I always post on my Music Page (under the Shows section) about upcoming gigs, but I rarely utilize the blog section to talk about them. It really never occurred to me to do so until now.
For the last few months, and for the foreseeable future, I have my own little monthly residency at Opa Coffee and Wine Bar on the First Saturday of the Month. I play from 8 – 10 PM. If you haven’t been to OPA, it’s a great little spot. One of the last of it’s kind as far as the original South Austin feel. It’s cozy on the inside and has an expansive kick ass patio to tip back an affordable glass of wine under the giant oak tree. You really can’t go wrong. Not only do I work at OPA, because I still have my day job, but performing here is a treat. The regulars are beyond supportive of what I do, it’s laid back and low pressure.
And yes, while having a monthly residency isn’t anything to brag about, ya know, like a weekly one, it’s a start. It’s nice to see more and more familiar faces every month and watch it grow. Hopefully, I’ll get to see some of you out at OPA this coming Saturday, October 1st!
