Fleet Foxes @ Mohawk (7/2)

The most talked about up and coming band to watch Fleet Foxes will be stopping by The Mohawk Austin on Wednesday night with tour mates The Dutchess & The Duke. Tickets are on sale right now for only $8 on the Transmission Entertainment ticket site. The doors are said to be opening at 7pm with opening act Balmorhea set to start at 8pm. If I was a betting man, I would bet that puts Fleet Foxes going on some time after 10pm. As always, ATH will be on hand covering the event. If you’ve read our review of the band’s most recent self-titled album, you know we are pumped about this sure to be outstanding show. You can read more about the band & hear a few songs on the band’s myspace page. Don’t miss out!

No Age will be showing up at the Emos Austin indoor stage this Tuesday (7/1) with supporting act Abe Vigoda in tow. You can purchase tickets for the low low price of $8 on the ticketweb website.

Keep Austin Weird Festival

The sixth annual Keep Austin Weird Festival & 5K will be taking place this Saturday(6/28) at Auditorium Shores. With us being a music website, we don’t really care too much about all that running so let’s talk about the killer lineup of bands for the festival. Bands will be getting started at 3 pm with Super Pal Universe and going until 8:30 pm with headliner Alejandro Escovedo. Other highlights include Austin band What Made Milwaukee Famous and my favorite new artist coming out of Austin Black Joe Lewis. Wristbands for the event are only $10 which is less than what you would pay to see any of these bands. Check out the website for the event for more information & band lineups. If that’s not enough to make you want to go, listen to “Gunpowder” by Black Joe Lewis and you’ll change your mind. Promise.

06/23 Islands Show @ Waterloo

Islands are forever. Islands showed me at Waterloo on Monday what they were trying to do with the new album. If you read our review of their most recent album Arms Way, you know that we were kind of indifferent to the new direction the band was taking. We don’t hate the songs, but we don’t love em either. After Monday, Islands changed my mind about the album as so many bands can do when playing new material live. Read more

You can read more about the album on NME website or head to Kings of Leon’s website for more information/tour dates.
