You might call the Saxon the house that Stephen Bruton built, given how many musicians followed the late Austin songwriter/producer to the South Lamar venue after he started playing there around two decades ago. Bruton died of cancer in 2009, but on the eve of what would have been his 70th birthday, Saxon owner Joe Ables is giving him a full salute. The Resentments, the local all-star outfit that Bruton founded, will lead the way, with guest appearances by Jon Dee Graham, Malford Milligan, David Grissom, Johnny Nicholas and more. Proceeds will go to the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians. — Peter Blackstock
