Local blues-rock guitar star Gary Clark Jr. posted a photo on Twitter and Instagram early this morning after sitting in on drums with JT Coldfire’s band on Wednesday night during Coldfire’s regular weekly gig at Friends on East Sixth Street.

Clark, who won his first Grammy earlier this year in the Best Traditional R&B Performance category, will have his “Austin City Limits” TV debut rebroadcast locally on KLRU this weekend. The episode, which originally aired last fall and splits the hour between Clark and Alabama Shakes, is scheduled for 1 a.m. Sunday morning (late Saturday night).
