Stateside at the Paramount
"...That's exactly what will happen at March 14's screening of Texas Music Extravaganza: The San Antonio Sound, a performance documentary exploring the impact of Doug Sahm, Augie Meyers, and Flaco Jimenez. Post-film performers include the Raul Malo Band with Augie Meyers, the Trishas & Friends, and Adam Aguilar...."
"...May 9: Jimmy LaFave May 16: Carolyn Wonderland May 23: Whiskey Myers May 30: Charlie Mars June 6: What Made Milwaukee Famous June 13: The Trishas June 20: Sons of Fathers June 27: Reckless Kelly July 4: Alpha Rev July 11: Ruby Jane July 18: Shinyribs July 25: Cari Hutson Aug. 1: Ray Wylie Hubbard Aug..."
"...The first six months have been rewarding. With upcoming releases from Uncle Lucius, the Trishas, Aimee Mann, Patterson Hood, and Caroline Herring, the rest of the year should be just as interesting...."
"...Bill Callahan “Too Many Birds” 11. * The Trishas “Give It Away” 12..."
"...Charlie Sexton, the Trishas’ Kelley Mickwee, and Kelly Willis..."
"...With the Trishas on "open-ended" hiatus, Kelley Mickwee becomes the first of the lauded local quintet to release any solo material. You Used to Live Here, bordering on an EP at a slim seven tracks, combines the singer's native Memphis roots with those of her Austin homestead..."
"...• The Guitartown/Conqueroo Party remains another show I’ve attended my entire life, featuring James McMurtry, Billy Joe Shaver, and the Trishas at the Dogwood and Molotov (715 W. Sixth St.), 11am-9pm...."
"...Texas Music Extravaganza, the 2009 documentary filmed at San Antonio’s Leon Springs Dancehall, will be screened at Antone’s on Sunday, March 14 at 8pm. Following the film that features the Tornados will be musical sets by the Trishas, Adam Aguilar Band, and the Raul Malo Band with guest Augie Meyers...."
"...Kydd Jones, Motel Aviv, Crooks, Zlam Dunk, Intimate Stranger, the Trishas, OBN III's, Eagle Claw, Black Books, Shells Playing the Odds..."
"...This year, the Austin Music Awards show notches its 35th anniversary edition at Downtown’s premier concert venue, ACL Live at the Moody Theater. Once again, the stars – Terry Allen, Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, Kat Edmonson, Kelly Willis, the Trishas, Grupo Fantasma, Brownout, Jai Malano, Fab 5 Freddy, and many more – align for typically singular performances..."
"...Since 2017 lit its fuse in the ire of women nationwide, their demonstration at the Moody Theater pulls from the same well of oral history. Dixie Chicks for a new Austin, the Trishas anchor a fairer gender powwow with harmonies straight out of the sovereign triumvirate of Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, and Emmylou Harris..."
"...Like any parent, I'd like to see them do something that was perhaps a little easier and maybe more financially secure, but they're really good at it." That's not mere paternal pride talking, either. Dustin came into his own with last year's cantankerous Whisky Priest, while Savannah leads the Trishas, the lovely, all-female gospel-folk fourpiece that's only a T Bone Burnett credential away from national prime time..."
"...As usual, we're proud to organize a gathering of Austin female talent – especially given the auspicious start to 2017. Our Femmes for SIMS set arrives built around Americana gospel inspirations the Trishas, featuring adversity angel Savannah Welch, and stacked by country queen Kelly Willis, Heartless Bastards powerhouse Erika Wennerstrom, local Thievery Corporation enchantress LouLou, who performs around town in Night Glitter, former Go-Go's bassist Kathy Valentine's blooming gal rockers the Bluebonnets, and finally a showdown between two of Austin's most flammable guitarists: Carolyn Wonderland and Jackie Venson...."
"...Indie pop songwriter Ben Kweller, Latino rock explosion Brownout, country harmony darlings the Trishas with Raul Malo, and Bill Carter & the Blame (augmented by a very special guest) provide ample tunage between the accolades, but who will fill the late-night headlining slot? Moser won't spill. Looking back on AMA history and seeing names like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pete Townshend, Doug Sahm, Townes Van Zandt, and Bruce Springsteen, it's clear it could be anyone. Half Notes..."
"...Nothing brings out the musical ghosts of Austin's Christmas past (Hank & Shaidri Alrich with Doug Harman), present (Uncle Lucius, Deadman, Suzanna Choffel), and future (Sahara Smith, the Trishas) like the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar. The annual holiday tradition commemorates its 35th anniversary at Palmer Events Center with another impeccable lineup, overseen once more by Austin-Bergstrom International Airport booker Nancy Coplin, from now through the Texana Dames' yearly closer on Christmas Eve..."
"...Who's on first? Reckless Kelly (see "Red, White, and Reckless," July 4, 2008) bats cleanup at the Dell Diamond on Sunday, April 25, for the local Americana act's second annual Celebrity Softball Jam, featuring Dale Watson, Micky & the Motorcars, and the Trishas, among others. See "Reckless Kelly Celebrity Softball Jam," Sports, for more game-day stats...."
"...• Texas Music Extravaganza captures the Texas Tornados' full-force live set last year in San Antonio and screens Sunday, March 14, 8pm, at Antone's, followed by live performances from the Raul Malo Band with Augie Meyers and hot new locals the Trishas, plus opener Adam Aguilar. Pick up tickets prior to the event at the club..."
"...The patriarch inspired her and eldest offspring Dustin Welch into the arts, the pair now established Austin artists following his relocation here from Tennessee after three decades. Youngest sibling Ada Welch remained in Nashville to teach art to tots, while Dustin followed in his father's footsteps as a singer-songwriter and Savannah pursued acting and music in equal measure, the latter most notably in the Trishas, long dubbed a homegrown indie version of the Dixie Chicks..."
"...Natalie Maines makes the pitch-perfect reference point for the Trishas, four lustrous roots harmonizers whose 2012 debut full-length, High, Wide & Handsome, put them on the map locally while positioning them nationally. In Jamie Wilson, Liz Foster, Kelley Mickwee, and Savannah Welch blooms more than a little Dixie Chicks, and like their outlaw predecessors, the Trishas straddle our town's yesterday and today: partly imported, partly homegrown, entirely Austin..."
"...A relatively new resident of Central Texas, Welch will be celebrating a new solo release, A Patch of Blue Sky, at the Cactus Café Friday, April 23. I spoke with him about living in Texas after many years in Nashville, making the new record, and the music of his children, Dustin and Savannah, the latter a member the new rave-worthy all-woman band the Trishas...."
