Today’s featured event:

Hear Austin, Texas-based singer-songwriter Walker Lukens and his band The Side Arms at 9 tonight at The Conservatory, 8911 N Western. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the lineup also features Sierra Brown and Brad Fielder.

In the past two and half years, Walker Lukens has released two EPs, an album, a 7-inch and played some 130 shows in four countries and 25 states. You probably didn’t know that because Walker was not always good at using the Internet. You might know that his most recent album, “Devoted,” was released in April 2013. Praised by NPR’s “All Songs Considered,” American Songwriter, Billboard, MTV Hive, and Houston Chronicle and locally by Austin American Statesman, Austin Chronicle, and KUT’s Texas Music Matters, Devoted is “…a masterful and expansive collection of progressive contemporary indie pop,” according to the Houston Chronicle.

More recently, Lukens has put together a five-piece backing band called The Side Arms. Having already shared stages with such national acts as Band of Horses and Heartless Bastards, Walker Lukens & The Side Arms are making a name for themselves. “At one moment heartbreakingly soulful, the next barn burningly raucous, newcomer Walker Lukens’ set had listeners in the palm of his hand,” writes Austin Fusion Magazine.
