A taste of this year’s ACL Fest lineup, KGSR serves up local soul troupe the Nightowls and recent Nashville Texpat Robert Ellis. Riding last year’s debut LP Good as Gold, the Nightowls continue carving out a Motown-inflected niche in Austin, with Ryan Harkrider leading a nine-piece groove machine through suave, energetic, blue-eyed soul. Robert Ellis headlines behind The Lights From the Chemical Plant, folding the Houston native’s myriad influences of roots, rock, southern soul, and jazz into some of his best songwriting to date.
