Patterico's Pontifications


Saturday Night with the Braun Brothers

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:25 pm

I am still rocking to songs by Reckless Kelly and Micky and the Motorcars, two Austin bands hailing from Idaho that I first mentioned in this post. The unique thing about these bands is that they are largely comprised of four brothers, all with the last name of Braun. Here is a nice live cut of “You Don’t Have to Stay Forever” by Reckless Kelly:

Just great stuff. Here’s a song from Micky and the Motorcars that you might mistake for Toad the Wet Sprocket (which is, in my mind, high praise):

Another positively awesome version of a great song from the Micky and the Motorcars Facebook page:

How about that, huh?

Finally, here’s a cute video of all four Braun brothers and their dad on the Jay Leno show from 1993, the year Mrs. P. and I were in Austin, Texas, finishing up at law school. Man, does this make me feel old:

Thanks to ThOR for that link.

  1. I have a feeling I will be featuring songs by these guys for a while.

    They’re coming to L.A. on the same night next month, by the way.

  3. Memories of 1993 make you feel old? Pshaw! Jimmy Carter was still president when I left UT-Law.

  4. Hey Patterico, have you seen Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers? I think you would really like them. Female singer/songwriter, super-bluesy awesome voice, fun material. The “van sessions” videos are a lot of fun – cover songs from the Commodores to Hall and Oates etc. I saw them in Chicago a few months ago and they were awesome.

  5. I admit that I do not pay close attention to such things but I did not know you were UT Law. I did my undergrad there myself (86-90), and my brother started UT Law in ’93. I guess that means we sort of alternated time there. My brother is now 1st Assistant DA of Montgomery County, TX… As for me I escaped CA in ’07 and planted back here in Austin.
