Southpaw Jones celebrates creative freedom and the freedom of a bare stage with a mostly solo performance in one of Austin’s most intimate, magical rooms. Southpaw has spent many hours on the Hyde Park Theatre stage as part of Spike Gillespie’s long-running Dick Monologues. (Spike has agreed to open the show and introduce Southpaw!) He started 2014 with surprise Frontera Fest success in a one-man short-form show that made it all the way to Best in Fest. He now returns to the Theatre to expand that original work with more original songs, more half-rehearsed monologues, and more personal experimentation. Prepare to laugh and cry spontaneously and perhaps even simultaneously.

This is also the unofficial and late album release celebration for Southpaw’s Domestic Love Canoe, a collection of 10 love songs, available now at most online music retailers. Download cards and other merchandise will be on sale the night of the show.

Covered off-street parking for the patrons of HPT is available in the lot at 4315 Guadalupe Street, just north of The Parlor. You can drive through The Parlor’s parking lot to reach it. Evening HPT parking also available at Kenneth’s Hair Salon, just south of HPT, and at the Hyde Park Church of Christ on the northeast corner of 43rd & Avenue B.

Thursdays at Strange Brew


Please be aware. I’m playing with my ol’ pal Matt the Electrician tomorrow night at Strange Brew in South Austin! It’s Matt’s last Thursday night before he goes on the road. That’s the bad news.

The good news is I’m babysitting 3 Thursday nights for him while he’s away. I’ll play July 4 with my pal and classy crooner Brian Kremer. On July 11, I’ll be joined by the fabulous Raina Rose, still in the glow of her new release, Caldera. Finally, on July 18, I’ll present a special solo performance. It all happens at Strange Brew, and it starts tomorrow night!

Here are the details:

If you haven’t been there yet, trust me, it’s a great place to see live music, electricians, and lefties.

Saturday in La Grange and on Pay-Per-View

Matt the Electrician and Southpaw Jones celebrate 10 years of sharing stages and hauling too many instruments.

We are performing Saturday night at The Bugle Boy in La Grange, Texas. It’s a very cool venue we’ve played before separately but not as a duo. I’ll paste details below.

You may be thinking, “I don’t live anywhere near La Grange.” That depends on how you define “live” and “near,” I suppose. But don’t fret! We will be live-streaming our concert starting at 8p Central Time. Wherever you are in the world, you can attend the show! You can purchase online tickets for $3 any time the day of the show at The show will not be taped, but you can watch it live in HD! Payment can be made using PayPal or a credit/debit card. This is a new and very cool service. You can be a part of the show AND the cutting edge of technology.

As always, I invite you to visit my Songs page, where I’ve added some new recordings to my giant table of songs. You can listen all day, over and over, free of charge.

The Bugle Boy wishes media to mention: “The Bugle Boy is a great weekend destination in the small Texas town of La Grange. Folks will drive from Houston, Austin, San Antonio and even Dallas to hear a performance in this room. It is a true listening room with fabulous acoustics where no talking is allowed during performances. ‘Respect for the performer and ticket holder sitting next to you is not an after thought at The Bugle Boy. It is our business model.’
Many folks have said, ‘This is the best listening room in Texas.’ Overnight accommodations and restaurants are listed at

Returning to the Cactus 7/12

Southpaw Jones with his precious keytar

Southpaw Jones with his precious keytarFriends.

Do you remember me? I hope so.

Please be aware that I am performing at the legendary Cactus Cafe on Thursday, July 12.

I plan to share new sounds, perspectives, and dimensions with all attendees.

Expect keytar, guitar, harmonica, yodeling, and even some rhyming words.

My friend Brian Kremer has recently recovered from hand injury and surgery.

He’ll share the night with me.

He’ll croon; you’ll swoon.

If you’d rather not be a part of local music history, feel free to stay home and drizzle olive oil over stale bread.
