It is going to be an Austin-tatious weekend at New Republic with two different Austin artists, Rudy Dice and Clint Manning, performing at the brewery.
Rudy Dice will be preforming on Friday, October 7 from 5-10pm. Dice is a soulful rock band with epic guitar riffs and strong vocals. Amanda Darnell and Calloway Rich will also be preforming acoustic at New Republic Friday night, bringing sounds that are sure to make for a relaxing and engaging evening.
On Saturday, Clint Manning will be preforming from 2-10pm, so whether you’re looking for a place to spend your day or your evening, he’ll be there! Manning is a talented singer/songwriter and a multi-instrumentalist. He fell in love with music at a young age, making multi-track recordings in his bedroom since elementary school. He formed his first band “Not Enough” as a sophomore in high school in his hometown of Buffalo, NY. From there, he went on to continue his study of music at college in Oneonta, NY. Manning continued writing and releasing music under various pseudonyms, including “Neverknown.”
After college he returned to his hometown and got back together with former “Not Enough” bassist Andy Reardon to form the band Speak Easy Three. Manning released his first two albums while in Speak Easy Three, “Would it Matter” (2010) and “Make it Happen” (2012). Manning relocated to Austin 2012, forming yet another band, All Over Everything, and released one self titled album with his band mates. Three years later, he finally dropped his pseudonyms and released his first single under his name, “Enough.” Manning expects to release a full album this fall. Great music is best accompanied by great beer. New Republic is expecting the return of their sweet potato porter, Windlass, this fall so be on the lookout. Until then, they still have their amazing year-round beers like Dammit Jim, Skylight, and Kadigan.
So head over to New Republic this weekend and enjoy a taste of Austin. There will be food trucks and plenty of beer to go around.
