CRITIC’S PICK: Austin pop rockers Fastball had a moment in the public consciousness when The Way (1998) was a rock radio staple. But after that passed, few realized they continued to make solid albums later on. The Help Machine(2019), produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin, is a prime example that their songwriting talents remain polished and professional. They will likely feature music from that along with tunes from the even lesser heard follow-up, the slightly more organic The Deep End (2022). — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Nostalgia is easy - quick money, easy memories, and fleeting comfort.

Inspiration is hard, demanding vulnerability and belief in soul-stirring creation.

For Fastball, trust, creativity, and hard work define their musical journey. From early success with The Way to their latest self-titled album, recorded with producer David Garza, the band’s evolution is evident. A pivotal moment a decade ago led to deeper communication and collaboration, setting the stage for their most creative period yet. With each member contributing and embracing new ideas, their music continues to evolve.

Their latest album showcases diverse influences, including social commentary. The band’s camaraderie and trust have never been stronger, propelling them forward. With a new single in April and album in May, Fastball remains committed to their musical journey, focused on authenticity rather than trends.
