Today's featured event: 

Hear Austin, Texas-based folk rockers Michael Fracasso and BettySoo at 8 tonight at the Blue Door, 2805 N McKinley. 

Fracasso is a genre-crossing artist whose critically acclaimed work includes nine distinctive solo album, recorded duets with both Patty Griffin and Lucinda Williams, an epic reinterpretation of John Lennon’s “Working Class Hero,” and memorable tributes to Woody Guthrie, Mickey Newbury and Townes Van Zandt. In 2011, he was short-listed for the Austin Public Library Award for literary achievement.


Fracasso’s oft-celebrated songwriting has reached new heights on his latest collection, "Here Come The Savages." An authentic Texas musician born to Italian parents, he spent years working the New York folk scene while mentored by the great Doc Pomus and has developed a grand aesthetic compass. 

Known for her vocal and songwriting prowess, BettySoo has released four solo albums, a solo EP and two duo covers albums; provided guest vocals on other great albums; and earned a slew of songwriting awards.



Her newest album was recorded with her friend and cellist Brian Standefer at his studio in Buda, Texas. Featuring 12 original songs that cover heavy material - in a range of styles, from fresh pop to raw grit to lush string and woodwind arrangements, "When We're Gone" has received high praise across the U.S.

Doors open at 7:30 tonight. For more information, go to www.bluedoorokc.com.
