4:00 pm

Start your weekend on a high note with FREE live music on the patio at TRACE (at W Austin), every Friday in October!

The evening begins with Cory Reinisch of Harvest Thieves (4p-6p) and then the party continues with DJ CASS&RA (6p-9p) on Friday, October 30.

Seating is limited to ensure a safe environment, so reserve your table in advance here:


Cory Reinisch is the frontman and lead songwriter for Austin-based Alt-Country 6-piece Harvest Thieves. Harvest Thieves draw on their blue-collar and back-roads heritage to craft songs that sway from brutish garage-rock swagger to traditional country honesty. With punk-ish explosions in sound, to finger-picked folk-rock simplicity, they are a formidable addition to Austin’s historically-minded music scene.
