    HAAM Day w/ Superfónicos, SaulPaul, Shy Beast

    After three years as MCG, songwriter Mariclaire Glaeser’s Austin quintet took on the antithetical, slightly more stylish title of Shy Beast. Along with the remix in nomenclature, they also turned the page from playful indie rock to sleek, polished electro-pop. “We needed a new lift in our sails,” shares Glaeser. “There was a sense of, ‘We’ve got to take more risks.’ I know there’s more in me than just wearing black clothes and singing about boys.” The angular sonic uptick manifested in bright, monochromatic pantsuits for Glaeser, finished in Eighties-futuristic neon wiring. Her more subdued four-man backing crew includes guitarist David Tenczar and bassist Jay Cesak, both of whom she’s known since age 7, as well as multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bennett and drummer Drew Silverman. Inspired by the live artistry of David Byrne and David Bowie, the 30-year-old singer crafted an elegant, eccentric onstage persona, finally banishing the docile singer-songwriter of her 20s. “Bowie assumed a different entity onstage,” remarks Glaeser. “He could hide behind that, but also project something crazy through it. I was in denial that I deeply wanted to be weird. At first it was an alter ego, but it just feels like me now.” Revitalizing sentiments show up on the band’s summer single “My Stride.” In the triumphant, synth-touched tribute, Glaeser’s stormy voice asserts: “Consider what led me here/ And all the reasons why. I can feel the fever in the moment/ I feel more alive.” Shy Beast’s first yearlong romp included a 2018 Black Fret nomination and a spot in the Austin Music Foundation’s artist development program. Gearing up for a November EP produced by Bright Light Social Hour fave Danny Reisch, the trajectory confirms that Glaeser, albeit formerly bashful, has successfully unleashed her inner beast.

    HAAM Day w/ Jackie Venson, Nakia

    No better endorsement for a young Austin guitar slinger than hometown hero Gary Clark Jr. taking them on tour, so slot Jackie Venson (7:30pm) into the queue of now and future greats. Nakia Reynoso’s powerful pipes come alive behind such backing, so The Voice star reunited his Blues Grifters for a Southern rock romp through their new LP. The South rises again – integrated, liberated, and shit-hot.

    HAAM Day w/ My Golden Calf, Magic Rockers of Texas, Housewarming, Geranium Drive

    Dabney Dwelle’s pulsating voice permeates My Golden Calf’s thick rhythms. He started the group as a last-ditch effort to build soundscapes around his broken-down Wurlitzer piano. Fellow Austin musicians Tim O’Neill, Jonathan Skaggs, and John Hale help mold pop sensibility out of Dwelle’s raw key dreams. Magic Rockers of Texas, Housewarming, and Geranium Drive build the bill.

    HAAM Day w/ Wil Cope, Warm Sugar

    Wil Cope turns his Tuesday residency on the Drag to a greater good. Cope deals the kind of despondency that hooks slowly, his cracking drawl serenading lonely nights of ransacked regrets on last year’s Gloom Shrine EP. The harmony-rich folk pairing of Jenny Carson and Evan Joyce lead sometimes quintet Warm Sugar into easy, Seventies-flavored twang-and-trill as they prep their upcoming debut offering. Evan Charles and Billy Broome troubadour first.

    HAAM Day w/ Moving Panoramas, the Stacks, Zoltars

    Inaugurated as a dream-pop trio with lush, spacious aesthetics, Moving Panoramas broke ground with 2015 LP One. Leslie Sisson’s restless voice and pinpoint songwriting now leads a five-part crew into an upcoming sophomore release with Austin label Modern Outsider. Kerrville transplants the Stacks bridge surf hues and velvety psychedelia behind Jake Ames’ dusty verse on debut Wasted Nostalgia. The Zoltars initiate deadpan, Burger Records-leaning garage rock.

    HAAM Day w/ Josh Pearson & Skymomma, Mission2Mars HAAM Day happy hour (6:00)

    Josh Pearson fires up funk first with heavy, psychedelic licks, pulling on his guitar work from local tribute acts HeartByrne (Talking Heads) and A Live One (Phish), as well as veteran jam quartet Moving Matters. Skymomma caps the night exploding as a 14-piece soul funk outfit, winding both sultry and swinging behind outfront duo Brooke Brockman and Brian Scartocci.

    HAAM Day w/ Marcia Ball & Cody Jasper

    Marcia Ball blends boisterous New Orleans piano, Louisiana swamp rock, and hot ’n’ heavy Texas blues. Blues Music Awards for Contemporary Album marked Presumed Innocent (2002) and So Many Rivers (2004), and now the 69-year-old Texan will be inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame this fall. Before her, Cody Jasper slings Hendrix and Vaughan with his Wildbills.

    Harvest Thieves

    All ears are on Harvest Thieves as they prepare a follow-up to 2016 debut long-player Rival, expected early next year. The local sextet edges trad alt.country with a contemporary flair as frontman Cory Reinisch intones sharp ballads against swelling harmonies that rouse the locals’ Austin fanbase to fervent sing-alongs. Early teases prove a tightly honed band ready to break beyond the capital city.

    HAAM Day w/ Ruthie Foster (11am), Akina Adderley (8am), Sydney Wright (6am)

    A fall release, Sydney Wright’s debut album Seiche will approximate “coming home from the longest road trip of 29 years.” The local song catcher sat on it for two years, but finally cut loose debut single “You Can Stay,” a pop gleaner with soaring choruses and smooth registers comparable to Sara Bareilles. Her title track transforms a piano ballad into a transcendental percussive opus. – Alejandra Ramirez Figurehead of a family devoted to repaying the art that made them legends, great uncle Julian “Cannonball” Adderley explained his giddy hard bop of the Fifties and Sixties before laying into his alto sax while brother Nat Adderley blew trumpet. Akina’s powerhouse voice maintains a prowess unique to her clan, the gift of modern Southern soul jumping with rock, jazz, and blues. – Jeremy Steinberger Three-time Grammy nominee Ruthie Foster shows no signs of slowing down as she inches through her 50s. Last year’s Joy Comes Back finds the powerhouse Texan returning back to her Caldwell gospel roots, recalling a choir’s uplifting melodies with gliding blues arrangements. Aretha Franklin’s spirit will be in the air as one of her distinguished disciples spreads the Queen of Soul’s spirit on HAAM Day. – Jeremy Steinberger
