The Townsend welcomes John Pointer's in:habit


$15/adv $20/door

December 07, 2019 07:30 PM until December 07, 2019 09:30 PM

John Pointer, 11-time Austin Music Award Winner and member of the Cirque du Soleil Talent Pool, returns to The Townsend Dec 7th at 8pm for his only solo show in Austin for 2019. 

Doors open at 7pm. First come, first seated.

In:Habit is a series he's debuting where most of the songs will be audience requests, done in the distinct style that he's developed over the years – stomping, beatboxing, singing, and playing two-handed guitar at the same time. He's a one-man wall of sound that can go from quiet calm to sonic tsunami in the blink of an ear. If that description leaves you scratching your head, you're not alone. What he does is easier to see than say, and totally unforgettable.

"That was amazing!" - Tommy Lee, Motley Crüe

"John Pointer blows my mind!" - Monte Montgomery, Guitar Virtuoso

"[He's] a bad motherfu*#@r, I hope we get to play together someday." - Harry Connick, Jr.

"[He has] a lot of fans here and I am number one among them." - Jason Newstead, Metallica

"John owns the stage just by walking into the room." - Kenny Gorka, owner of The Bitter End, New York City
