We just discovered that the White Denim show posted on the Mohawk website is actually a free by RSVP show put on by ATX Converge. The lineup is pretty dang impressive: White Denim, Black Joe Lewis, Freshmillions and Belaire will all be on hand. The show isn’t until Friday, but you better RSVP now before the window closes. Make sure you get in line early since those RSVPs rarely guarantee you get in anything. Doors are at 8.
Emo’s is the place to be this week! After checking out Throw me the Statue on Tuesday night, why not make it two nights in a row with another sure to be killer set by These are Powers? Local Austin band, When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, will also be playing during Wednesday night’s events. Tickets look to be sold only at the door.
