Fred Thomas is a well-known, well-loved songwriter from the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area of Michigan. Though he’s certainly gotten around in the music world, his work as the mastermind of weirdo-pop band Saturday Looks Good To Me is perhaps the best known. In addition to relentlessly writing and performing, he’s a tireless supporter of his local music scene, runs labels, and cranks out perfectly idiosyncratic and compelling tunes. Solo and under his own name, he dropped by the BTRhouse backyard in Austin to sing some tuneful tales and chat about his work.
Featured song: “Cops Don’t Care, Pt. II”
Special thanks to Southern Tier Brewing Company for sponsoring the BTRhouse sessions.
