Johnny Cash Bash at Austin's Threadgill's South

If you’re a country music fan in the Austin area you will have no lack of choices when it comes to some great country concerts this weekend. Whether you’re looking for the red dirt scene or to check out Threadgill’s tribute to Mr. Cash on Sunday, the following schedule will have you set for a good weekend:

Friday, 7/30:

If you’ve never seen Reckless Kelly live now is the time. The local favorites will be playing a 2-night stretch at Antone’s, and they truly put on an awesome live show.

Josh Abbott
and Kyle Bennett Band at River Road Ice house in New Braunfels.  Enjoy the concert and float the river Saturday – Jason Boland and the Stragglers will be at the same venue Saturday night.

If you’re in the mood for some Rockabilly, Two Tons of Steel will be at the Broken Spoke.

Ryan Beaver at Midnight Rodeo.


You’ll have your choice of 3 big concerts to choose from Saturday night, and quite honestly I’ll have a tough time choosing which to see.

Randy Rogers Band and Charlie Robison will be at Nutty Brown Cafe.

Reckless Kelly will continue with night 2 at Antone’s.

Jason Boland and the Stragglers will play at River Road Ice House.


I really cannot think of a better way to end the weekend that with Threadgill’s Johnny Cash Bash.

Sunday evening will offer a night of Johnny Cash songs performed by some of Texas’s greatest bands and musicians. Details and a list of bands can be found at Here’s hoping that the Bash becomes an annual tradition.
