If you’re looking for shows to attend this week, odds are you’ve found something to your liking. But, before the work week starts back up, there’s a nice little show over at the Parish featuring Wye Oak that you should catch. They’ll be playing with Pattern is Movement, and you can buy yourself a ticket to the show right HERE. We caught up with Andy real quickly for some questions about their tour, and their latest album, Shriek. Read on for the interview. Read More
Their scene, their city, discovery, being a band, labels, projects, Spotify, sports – We had the opportunity to sit down with The Fresh & Onlys and talk music and people, and eventually a lot of sports. The interview went long and we love it. I thought about cutting it down, but these guys put it out there and to cut it would be a shame.
Big ups to the gentlemen for taking the time, being conversational and quite candid. It could have been even longer had my camera not over-heated, yeah, it over-heated.
One of the great things about Psych Fest, like many of our festivals in town, is that they realize that not every band can play, nor can every fan afford the shows. So, they put in some work and lined up some opening shows on the Thursday before the official festival begins. One of those acts I’ve been following for years: Elephant Stone. They’re one of the many great acts playing over at Mohawk (there’s other shows at Red 7 too!); they’ll be playing at 9:00 PM outdoors. We caught up with Rishi Dhir for a quick interview before they make their way into town. Read More
Austin Psych Fest is just a few short days away, so I reckoned we oughta ramp up our coverage. Today we caught up with Secret Colours for a quick pre-fest interview. I really love the Chicago band’s responses, and I appreciate greatly the thought drummer Justin Frederick put into his answers. The band will be playing at 5:45 on Sunday at the Reverberation Stage. Let’s get ready to enjoy ourselves at one of Austin’s best festivals.
Only a few weeks away from Austin Psych Fest, and we’re trying to continue to keep you up to date on some of the bands we’re really excited to see at the festival. Today we’ve got a short and sweet interview with Pink Mountaintops main guy, Steve McBean. Read below for his responses, and be sure to check out the band at the festival on Sunday, May 4th.
Ah yes, another festival in Austin! Actually, we’re really excited about Austin Psych Fest. It’s got a remarkable line-up, though I’m a bit bummed Primal Scream had to back out. But, as we have a month to go, we want to start offering you some insight into the bands coming our way. Our first interview is with Greg Ashley, who released Another Generation of Slaves to rave reviews, at least from our site. We caught up with him before he comes into town. Read More
Over the last year or so, I’ve had several conversations with people in town about the community aspect of the Austin music landscape. I realize, of course, this isn’t always the most important question to ask, but it’s still a great conversation to have, especially when one considers the varying opinions. I caught up with the hard-working Andrew Stevens while he was out on tour with Jess Williamson (just one of his many projects, as you’ll see below). Read on for Andrew’s insightful comments about the way he sees things working in Austin. Read More
Less than a day away from the AMBAs, and we wanted to run one of our last interviews with one of the nominees for Best Album. Love Inks had an incredible year, and we loved Generation Club. We caught up with the band to talk about some of their achievements, influences and what nots. We hope to see you all out tomorrow night over at Spider House Ballroom. Read More
