After a one-year hiatus, Martin Zellar is reviving his regular post-Thanksgiving musical offering in Austin.

On Saturday, Zellar, a singer and songwriter who has created music with his solo band and the Gear Daddies, is scheduled to perform at 7:30 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Austin.

Zellar will do a solo show with an acoustic guitar. Some of Zellar’s songs are "Stupid Boy" and "Zamboni Song."

Tickets are $10.

This will be the sixth post-Thanksgiving show offered by Zellar, said Scott Anderson, director of the Paramount. Typically, Zellar’s shows are well-attended, he said.

Anderson, bass player for the Austin blues-rock band Plan B, also plans to help continue another post-Thanksgiving tradition Saturday.

Plan B is slated to perform its fourth annual concert at the Austin VFW Club to benefit the Salvation Army’s food shelf. Admission will be donations of money or nonperishable food.


The Right to Arm Bears, a younger rock band, will open for Plan B at 7:30 p.m., with Plan B taking the stage at 9 p.m., Anderson said.

The VFW is about a block east of the Paramount.
