What’s better than a singer-songwriter who thrives year after year in Austin? How about three of those singer-songwriters in one quintet? Austin City Limits and SXSW veterans Band of Heathens play Americana tinged with elements of Southern rock and blues, Texas and New Orleans. Their show 9pm Wednesday, Sept. 21, at Sam Bond’s will be a rare chance to see the fresh Americana rock stars in a tiny venue.
