Mrs. Glass to Document Legendary Residency on Video
Posted by medicinemanmarketing Thursday, 2013-April-04
Austin based singer/songwriter Mrs. Glass will film the April 9 installment of his impressive White Horse residency. The shoot will be directed by local filmmaker Tyson Zoltan, known for his work with The East Cameron Folkcore, Bridge Farmers and many others. The concert will also be captured in high-definition multi-track audio by Daniel McNeill for a future live record release. THE DETAILS: • Tuesday, April 9, 2013 • Doors open at 9pm, concert begins at 10pm • Free Admission • Free Lonestar beer from 9:30-10:00pm • The White Horse, 500 Comal Street Mrs. Glass was born in Iowa in 1985. He hitchhiked to New Orleans as a teenager and moved to Austin after Hurricane Katrina. You can categorize his voice and style of playing as a fusion of delta blues and pop. His crew is comprised of bassist/keyboardist Ivan Evangelista and drummer, Ian Fry. If Son House had a child with Janis Joplin, the result would be Mrs. Glass. Mrs. Glass released his first full length album in January 2013. It is available at Waterloo Records. He holds weekly residencies at The White Horse (every Tuesday at 10pm) and The Blackheart (every Thursday at 10pm). "One of Austin's best guitarists, Mrs. Glass, [is] a sharp-dressed picker with a deep microphone moan that will make you want to move here just for his Tuesday night residency." - Kevin Curtin, (Austin Chronicle) "Anyone who does not like that (Mrs. Glass) is just not listening." -John Aielli (KUTX 98.9) "What we have here from Mrs. Glass is a rock ‘n’ soul blowout, a blaze of rock/pop dosed with shots of blues and loads of grit." -Laurie Gallardo (KUTX 98.9) For more information on Mrs. Glass visit: www.reverbnation.com/mrsglass Facebook: www.facebook.com/Mrsglassaustin
