Enjoyed a fabulous Friday evening last week at the kick-off of the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museumâ€™s annual Music Under the Star concert series. Now in its sixth season, the mid-summer series draws hundredsâ€”blankets and camp chairs in towâ€”to the museum plaza (at MLK and Congress in Austin) for an evening of outdoor music and free foodâ€”all in the shadow of the plazaâ€™s signature 10-ton bronze star. We prepared for the 100-plus temperatures by bringing plenty of water, but to our pleasant surprise, the plaza proved well shaded and bearable by late afternoon. (Exploring the fascinating museumâ€”free admission during the event from 6 to 9 p.m.â€”provided respite, as well.) Our feast on Rudyâ€™s barbecue, Sweet Leaf Tea, and Blue Bell Ice Cream was set to the sweet sounds of Austin Blues Society blues harp players and R&B icon Miss Lavelle White. (Fun note: The show started with a harmonica workshop and free harmonicas for the kids.) The musical lineup for future Fridays includes Toni Price, Tiburon (including salsa lessons), and Doyle Bramhall.
