Former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant will join the cast of Austin’s top local musicians on Wednesday at the Austin Music Awards at the Hilton Austin.

“During his time living in Austin, Plant frequently tuned in to KUT/KUTX on Saturday nights for Ray’s specialty show Twine Time and was eager to pay respects to one of his favorite deejays,” an announcement from the festival said this morning. “Performance details will be a surprise for guests, and will include multiple songs inspired by the music Paul Ray loved and isn’t a part of Plant’s normal concert repertoire.”

Tickets to the show are on sale now for $25.
