Legendary radio DJ, John Aielli, celebrates 50 years on KUT and KUTX on Tuesday March 7th at Hogg auditorium. An all star concert featuring Nakia, Bob Schneider, Shinyribs, Hayes Carll, Carrie Rodriguez, Tony Kamel of Wood and Wire and more. The show starts at 7:30 with your emcee Jaston Williams and the house band of Graham Reynolds.
“I am beside myself to be performing for John Aielli at his 50th anniversary celebration,” says Nakia. “John is the embodiment of so many of the things I love about Austin and has shown me a great deal of kindness and support throughout my musical career. To be invited to share the stage alongside some of my favorite performers as we honor John is humbling and exciting.”
Nakia first appeared on the air with John Aielli in 2005 as “Vic Odin” in Miles Zuniga’s infamous lounge revue rockers, The Small Stars. John referred to
Nakia’s Vic’s vocals as “thunderous” and spent 10 minutes discussing pentangles.
