      Join Texas Land Conservancy as we bring the Austin community together to shed light on the importance of land conservation for the health of our water systems. We will be donating $1 for every beer sold during the event to TLC while supporting their mission to protect the land, water, and wildlife of Texas. So come on out, bring all your friends, and support Texas land with an ice cold beer!

      What does beer have to do with land conservation?
      Private land conservation plays an important role in making sure that everyone can use the water that flows through our state for drinking, recreation…and yes, beer! Access to clean water is a basic human right, and many of our great Texas rivers are threatened by pollution and over-use. Since there is water in beer, it’s not just your drinking water that’s threatened—your beer is, too.

                    Oskar Blues Brewery Austin is turning one year-old Saturday. To celebrate they’ve put together a stellar psych-rock bill featuring The Bright Light Social Hour with support from Abram Shook and The Halfways. Fans can win tickets by tagging 365 Things Austin’s Instagram account and a friend you’d like to take to the show. A second chance to win a pair of tickets comes in the form of reposting this story and tagging us on Facebook and Twitter. Contest runs through noon on Saturday. If you would rather just purchase advance tickets, here’s the link. RSVP via Facebook here.  

                    Four new beers will be available in the tap room only  meaning you can’t run out to HEB and grab a sixer. These are Texas-only offerings. There will be a Brewhouse specialty lager, gin barrel-aged Mama’s Lil Yella Pils, the introduction of an imperial red ale and a beer called Spinner. Food from Gobble Gobble and Hecho en Queso (4-11pm) will be available for purchase.  Fans will also have the opportunity to pick up a custom, live screen-printed shirt from Fine Southern Gentlemen.  

                    All that good food and drink is great but the reason you want to party with Oskar Blues Brewery is the great slate of Austin bands performing. The Bright Light Social Hour (TBLSH) has two full-length records out and a third on the way according to tour manager Katie Marschner. Their blues-rock debut featured a few local hits including, “Detroit,” “Back and Forth” and the unforgettable “Shanty.” The band shifted gears with their next full-length, heading in a decidedly psychedelic direction with “Space is the Place.” 

                    TBLSH recently performed at Solstice Festival earlier this year with Built to Spill, JJ Grey and Mofro, CAPYAC and Radio Moscow among others. We overheard musicians backstage talking about TBLSH. They were impressed. They’d also forgotten how good the quartet led by Curtis Roush’s blazing guitar. Jack O’Brien (bass), Joe Mirasole (drums) and Edward Braillif (keys) is. 

                    Supporting acts, The Halfways and Abram Shook represent a different take on psych rock than TBLSH but no less enjoyable. The Halfways ethereal sound is both haunting and lush, like a dreamy sonic landscape punctuated by a standard setup that included an eerie organ on one of their new tracks co-founder Daniel Fernandez sent us. They call it psych-noir. We call it trip-out tunes that are perfect to chill out to after a long day at work.   The quintet also features Mohawk Austin Marketing Director, Taylor Catherine on bass. 

                    We first caught the unconventional Abram Shook at The Parish on Sixth street several years ago. Vocal effects and songwriting produce a sound akin to Walker Lukens’ vocal gymnastics but with a psych bent. Think songwriter with a predilection for weird sounds.
