Austin Lucas

It was great to see Austin Lucas on Saturday night, and to see him with a full band.
The show contained one of the stand out concert moments of the year: to end the set Austin came down from the stage to sing “Go West” completely unplugged. And the crowd circled in, quiet and respectful. As the song built to the chorus you could hear a couple of folks (myself included) barely singing along to ourselves. Then on the chorus the crowd joined in. Just for the chorus, quieting again for the verse, before the signing along again on the second chorus.
It’s a stunning song and the tacit understanding and blurring between the artist and the audience really stretched it into something stellar.
