When you think of the music scene of Austin, TX, you may think of progressive country music and singer-songwriters in the first place. But the music scene of Austin is versatile. It also has a lively jazz and latin scene. And it has a history of funk.
In 1975 Austin funk band “Steam Heat” released the LP “Austin Funk” and made it clear, that Austin can be very funky. The digital re-release of “Austin Funk” is now available for downloading at Fable Records.
Listen to “Radiator” by Steam Heat:
There will also be a reunion concert by “Steam Heat” to celebrate the re-release on August 21st at 9:00pm at “Threadgills World Headquarters” located at 301 W. Riverside Dr. in Austin, Texas.
Steam Heat is not the only highlight of the re-release party. “Starcrost”, “47 X Its Own Weight” and Beto and the Fairlanes will perform, too. Like “Steam Heat”, these jazz bands were active in and around Austin in the nineteen-seventies.
