Editor’s note: This article was originally published August 6, 2014
The CBGB at Cactus Cafe. Not to be confused with the legendary New York punk club CBGB, or the new South Austin hangout ABGB, this new local outfit’s name is an acronym for the Colin/Bonnie/Graham Band. Accomplished Americana singer-songwriters Colin Gilmore, Bonnie Whitmore and Graham Weber have worked together on the road and in the studio before, but this endeavor is a more concentrated pooling of their considerable talents. Drummer Matt Winegardner rounds out the ensemble. $10-$12. 8:30 p.m. 2247 Guadalupe St. cactuscafe.org. — P.B.
