Pinetop Perkins, RIP

Amidst the quiet post-SX recovery the news came through that the great Pinetop Perkins died in his home in Austin. Perkins won multiple grammys for his blues piano work, and played with many of the blues greats throughout his 97 years. He called Austin home for the last seven of those years, and continued to play gigs, including one at Antone's less than a month ago. He will be remembered with a special blues tribute tonight at Antone's, lineup TBD.
