Ian McLagan was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 for his work with the British Invasion band Small Faces (later Faces) in the sixties and seventies, but he’s been a busy—and very active—member of Austin’s music community for the past twenty years.
For the past ten of those years, McLagan has maintained a residency at Lucky Lounge, where he and his band—Ian McLagan and the Bump Band—have played during happy hour every week. Tonight, the band is celebrating that ten-year anniversary with a performance at 6 p.m. that doubles as the album release party for the band’s new United States.
The first single from that album is a track called “All I Wanna Do,” a bluesy number led by McLagan’s piano lines and vocals. Below, you can take a look at the exclusive premiere of a live version of “All I Wanna Do,” recorded—fittingly—at Lucky Lounge earlier this year. It’s a fine preview of a night that’ll mark a decade of rocking from the Hall of Famer.
