Xavier Rudd - The Tap Root Tour with Austin Show

Xavier Rudd at La Zona Rosa in Austin, TX. 2009
When I first discovered Xavier Rudd in 2007, I was captivated when I heard him cover No Woman No Cry by Bob Marley. I would soon find out that I would gravitate towards his entire discography and his diverse sound. Every time I listen to his music it reminds me to find peace, embodies the feelings and vibrations of the ocean (CA is still in my soul), surfing, dealing with ups and downs in life (Green Spandex helped me with the passing of my mom), and being good to myself and others around me.

Seeing him live twice in Austin at La Zona Rosa and Austin City Limits has been inspiring as well. It is awesome watching him play guitars, didgeridoos, drums, stomp boxes, and tons of other awesome noise making objects. I couldn't be more excited for The Tap Root Tour, especially since it will be an intimate and up close look featuring Xavier Rudd solo! He is concluding the tour in Austin on May 24th, and tickets go on sale Friday, February 11th (Pre-Sale Thursday with Passcode: Koonyumsun). Pick them up here and go see him!

  1. I just saw Xavier Rudd in Los Angeles May 2 and it was incredible. I'm captivated every time I hear him perform. I've been listening to him for a few years now and whenever I'd check upcoming tour dates they were no where near me, if even in America. Lol. Anyways, you should check out this review of the show.
