Entering its 32nd season on the Zilker Park lawn, Blues on the Green retrofits into a more condensed affair. Longtime booker for the ACL Radio summer staple, Andy Langer, stepped away from the event, and this year’s series pared down to a two-night showcase. On Tuesday, Nashville’s Devon Gilfillian brings his percussion-driven soul and smooth, high croon, which melded deep passion and pleading grooves over new third LP Love You Anyway. 2012 American Idol champ Phillip Phillips opens with fourth platter Drift Back, broiling anthemic songwriting swells.: Local favorites Wild Child cap night two after reforming this spring for a sold-out tour and new album, End of the World. The songwriting duo of Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins adds firepower to their charming heartbreak odes with the addition of John Calvin Abney and members from Wilson’s Sir Woman outfit. Recently transplanted Louisiana siblings THEBROSFRESH open with slinking, eclectic R&B. Also new: $100 “Blues With a View” VIP tickets for a reserved stage-front section of the otherwise free concert.
Tue., July 18, 7pm. Free & open to public.
