Mingo Fishtrap

Levitt Pavilion

Sunday, October 11

It’s been quite the rollercoaster ride, but the eight members of Austin’s critically acclaimed soul collective Mingo Fishtrap have found their sweet spot. Now four albums deep, the eight-piece outfit has honed its sound, rubbed shoulders with musical idols, and delivered powerhouse live shows to crowds of thousands in the years since the band’s inception in a tiny dorm room at the University of North Texas. Mingo’s fourth full-length record, On Time, blends punchy horns and gritty Memphis grooves with New Orleans funk to create sounds steeped in both modern pop and ’60s soul sensibilities, that transcend both era and genre.
