Highland Lakes nightlife

You can find more toe tap pin’ fun in the Highland Lakes this summer.

Also in Llano, check out Fuel Coffee House, 106 E. Main St. The intimate setting provides a great place to experience local and traveling talent up close and personal.

On most Saturdays, the community-supported coffee house hosts an informal jam session 6:30-9:30 p.m. You’ll get a good taste of the local talent (and coffee) when you settle in, kick back and listen.

And you never know who will show up.

If you’re around the Llano square on Tuesday nights, Fuel hosts regular performances starting at 6 or 7 p.m. depending on the entertainer. You can catch the Lake Bottom Jazz Combo the second Tuesday of the month as well as Keenan’s Eclectic Stuff, Harold and Friends and Harriet Myrick on the other Tuesday nights.

For more information on Fuel Coffee House, visit its website  or call (325) 247-5272.

In Marble Falls, give a listen to TexAmericana Tuesdays at the River City Grille, 700 First St. Local singer-songwriters Mike Blakely and Larry Nye typically headline the event, but special guests show up each week to help entertain. There is no cover, but you might want to take advantage of River City’s fully stocked bar and complete menu.

On Wednesdays at River City Grille, john Arthur martinez entertains with his selection of songs performed both in Spanish and English. Like his compadres on Tuesday nights, he gets many friends to stop by to help with the show. Again, there is no cover.

In Spicewood, you’ll want to check out the happenings of the Spicewood Arts Society.

Three Spicewood residents in March 2000 were discussing their love of arts and wondering out loud how great it would be to have those types of events in the community. So, they decided to bring the arts to Spicewood.

While the society hosts and promotes all forms of the arts, organizers bring in some unique and talented musical events each year. The society just announced its 2013-2014 lineup, which begins on Friday, September 20 with a performance by john Arthur martinez. Other artists to look forward to include Mingo Fishtrap and Doug Montgomery.

For complete list of shows for the coming season, go to www.spicewoodarts.org or call (512) 264-2820.

How’s that for some boot scootin’ boogie?
