The Roosevelts 

KMTN 96.9 FM and 307 Live present The Roosevelts: America’s Own Indie-Rock Act at Town Square Tavern. These songsmiths carved a distinctive niche in the Austin music scene before moving to Nashville. Come to hear a sound that’s a little bluesy, a little bit folky, and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll. Get tickets (for $9.69) and see a video online.
