Shinyribs Russell is known as the front man of the Austin TX musical combo, The Gourds.

The Gourds formed in 1994 and have become a favorite of the Americana/Hippie Jam/Genre Bending scenes of the last 15 + years.

Russell, in search of an outlet for his massive stockpile of songs, began performing solo shows under the pseudonym Shinyribs as early as 2006. After playing a monthly show in Houston for the last two years he has honed Shinyribs into one of the most interesting roots music experiences around.

A revolving line up of Austin talent has evolved into the current top notch band; Gourd drummer Keith Langford, Cerebral Pony Bass man Jeff Brown and Kentucky Fried Keyboard Whiz Winfield Cheek.

A Shinyribs recording is due out this Feb-Mar. The much anticipated record is being produced by Mr. Ribs and his long time friend George Reiff. There are guest appearances by Ray Wylie Hubbard, Mark Rubin, Scrappy Judd Newcomb, Michael Fracasso, Phoebe Hunt and more.

 

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
