Come this January, Live & Breathing will be doing a Lubbock takeover so to speak spotlighting some of Texas’ greatest talents. Live & Breathing for the last couple of years has traveled around the country recording sessions with a number of songwriters and bands including Ray Wylie Hubbard, Shovels & Rope, Damien Jurardo, American Aquarium, and The Black Lillies.
Starting the week of January of January 7, the Live & Breathing team will be recording a week’s worth of talent from Lubbock as well as a few other bands coming in from Denton, Austin, and a few other places. In addition, The Blue Light will be hosting a week’s worth of shows with the majority of those artists.
Currently, the lineup looks something like this.
Tuesday: Thrift Store Cowboys, Brandon Adams, and Rattlesnake Milk
Wednesday: Charlie Shafter and Warren Jackson Hearne
Thursday: Telegraph Canyon, The Glossary, and Daniel Markham
Saturday: Rodney Parker, Whiskey Shivers, and Kris Hutson
Each show is $5 individually or $15 for all four shows. You can purchase tickets at Ralph’s Records. Check out more information on The Blue Light shows here.
