Road Dog

The Places and Ralph White host a benefit.

The wind has finally blown Amy Annelle, aka the Places, and Ralph White home to Austin.

"The tour was epic and very enjoyable until a bad twist of fate on the way back into town Sunday," Annelle reports. "Ralph's dog Stella got bit in the face by a rattlesnake by the Llano River. She is a trooper and it looks like she is going to make it, but the vet bills are crazy."

The Places and Ralph White host a benefit tonight at Lovejoys. The show is free, but all donations and proceeds will help offset Stella's bills.

The 2021-2022 Austin Music Awards Music Poll is underway. Vote now for your favorite bands, venues, and music until January 31.
