This week, Bill Callahan embarks on a month-plus tour, backed by a full band, which includes Shearwater drummer Thor Harris and violinist Elizabeth Warren. He'll be accompanied by Sun City Girl/improvisational virtuoso Sir Richard Bishop, though no Austin dates are scheduled.
However, Bill will be back in town for his lady Joanna Newsom's just-announced Oct. 27 performance with the Austin Symphony Orchestra at the Riverbend Centre. Tickets for that show go on sale Thursday through Front Gate outlets.
