GarciaJavi Garcia, one of New Braunfels, TX’s best-known young artists, recently played a terrific set at the Gibson Austin Showroom.

In the vein of gravelly alt-country rockers like Lucero or the Drive-By Truckers, Garcia found his own poetic voice with his 2010 debut A Southern Horror. More recently he won rave reviews for his The Great Controversy album earlier this spring.

The Gibson Austin Backroom Bootlegs are a series of closed session performances filmed at Gibson’s showroom in Texas’ capitol city. Artists both prominent and up and coming attend these exclusive events to perform stripped down versions of their art on Gibson and Epiphone instruments. Working with production partner Modern Trade to capture these rare and beautiful moments on camera, the end results are, more often than not, quite stunning.
