(6/22) Preview: Suzanna Choffel at Blues On The Green
One of my absolute favorite Austin artists is Suzanna Choffel. Sorry to say this folks, but she is way too good to be local. Count your blessings that she is and that it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to see her live. She often gets compared to Nelly Furtado because she does sound like her, but Choffel is more bluesy and soulful.
Speaking of seeing Choffel live and not costing an arm and a leg, be sure to check out Choffel for free at Blues On The Green (BOTG) on Wednesday, June 22. BOTG happens every summer here in Austin at Zilker Park. It will be hot but well worth it as Bright Light Social Hour open.
Choffel will be performing songs from her new album, Steady Eye Shaky Bow. Get there early as parking is a headache and so are the people further away from the stage who come just "be there" and don't pay attention to the music. I hate sitting and even being around those people and their bad kids. You will want to be up front for this one. Trust me.
