David Garza opening for Fiona Apple

Because I have a hard time shelling out $35 (plus $3 facility fee!) for any show, I’ll probably miss Austin’s David Garza opening for Fiona Apple June 20 at Dodge Theatre. Aside from Dodge Theatre’s sterile, impersonal environment, I’d be spending the dough for Garza more than anything anyway.

David Garza (accent on the “i”, as in Dav-eeed) is one of those artists in my collection I can easily overlook, but when I start listening again he’s hard to quit. His 1998 release This Euphoria might fall under one of those “desert-island discs” lists if I ever cared to put one together. He’s got the heart of a true singer/songwriter, but the playing chops that inspire big guitar riffs and pulsating drum beats.

He’s absurdly prolific, and his cameo appearance for a set by fellow Austinites Hairy Apes BMX was a highlight of our trip to the ACL festival last year.

Catch him on tour this summer. And you’d do yourself a huge favor by picking up any of his works.

  1. Garza is a talent that’s for sure, saw him live a couple times when living in Dallas, Tx.- Overdub is excellent!

  2. If you have any pull at all, please aim David towards Salt Lake City. I’ve only been wanting to see him for the past, oh, 7 years or so.

  3. Saw him open for Fiona in Boston and was underwhelmed–he just seemed kinda lost in the space onstage. May check out his recordecd stuff, though.

  4. If you like Fiona Apple, you’ll LOVE Alexe Colbus. She’s an 18 year old artist from Fairfax, Virginia, who I just signed to my tiny indie label, New Indie Artists. She writes her own songs, plays piano, and will knock you over with her Italian charm. She’s influenced by Fiona Apple, of course, Tori Amos, Norah Jones, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, and Carole King.
