    Eric Johnson & His Jazz Fusion Quartet

    Austin guitar icon Eric Johnson rose from jazz fusion after his band the Electromagnets released their sole LP in 1975. Here inspired by Eclectic, a 2014 collaboration with jazz axe god Mike Stern, the local burner plays two sets, one featuring fusion classics and the other originals. The killer band includes drummer Tom Brechtlein, keyboardist Sean Giddings, and old pal/bassist Roscoe Beck.

    The Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival w/ Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis, Harry Edohoukwa, Mariachi Capitál, Batty Jr.

    The 29th annual Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival stacks endless piles of spicy condiments extracted from the pits of Central Texas. Harry Edohoukwa (Ee-doh-kwah), meanwhile, sizzles on the undercard, enticing hip-hop enthusiasts to sample his varied offerings well in advance of December’s Fire on the Mountain. “My name is my name, so what I spit is facts,” the Nigerian American declares as it pertains to rocking his birth name and his art’s veracity. The only thing missing from the confident proclamation is a “yeugh” in the tone of rapper Pusha T. Edohoukwa overcame a family myth and now adores fufu with ogbono soup, while hailing the Clay Pit for the best spices in town. So alight his buffet of influences: Lucky Dube, Kid Cudi, and Kanye West. “The thing they have in common is that they’re not stunting. They’re naked. They bare it all,” says the Dallas native turned Austin dweller. Like many of his idols, Edohoukwa’s (small) catalog showcases diversity. Options on the tall, former track athlete’s menu range from broody melodies to channeling Jim Morrison on “Mad Max.” Latest “B-Side” pivots on an African woman gushing over his beauty, passive-aggressive braggadocio, a lush bassline, sorrowful singing, synth chords, and catchy “nah, nah-nah-nahs” that fuse into a beat produced by cousin Imoh Edohoukwa. “I don’t want to be heady, but if I’m gonna be honest, I’m Harry Edohoukwa, and Harry Edohoukwa just so happens to be able to rap extremely well and sing extremely well and emote in ways that are specific to me.”
