Show Preview: Slow Magic @ Red7 (1/22)


LocationRed 7
Tickets$3 with RSVP

Orthy has been in the studio. Will we get a bunch of new jams? Hopefully.

Red Bull Sound Select hopes that by bringing Slow Magic through town you will get silly with locals Orthy and Dallas’s Dark Rooms. Slow Magic had a jam on our Best of 2014 so we’re good with it. The weather may suck, but let’s dance a little.

We know Orthy pretty well, so here is a sample from Dark Rooms. Hope you dig it.

ATH Interview & Show Pics: Midge Ure

Midge UreMidge Ure came to Austin to do one of his rather rare solo acoustic shows. With his first release in twelve years finally out to the public, the pioneer in electronically tinged pop had new material to revitalize a fan base that is still in love with the classics from previous solo efforts, Visage and, most importantly, Ultravox. I took advantage of the trip in to get a quick email interview done before the show at Cactus Cafe.

Head on past the break to read a Q&A covering the many projects, life as a solo artist and even a little bit on being the guy behind Band-Aid along with coverage of the show and plenty of pics. Ladies and Gentlemen, Midge Ure…

Show Preview: Midge Ure @ Cactus Cafe (1/18)


LocationCactus Cafe
Tickets$25 HERE

Midge Ure is a name you should know, but you may not despite the iconic voice and contributions to music. Ultravox, Visage, solo albums, collaborations on so many things including producing and writing that little Band-Aid thing thirty years ago. Little known fact, he played all but the drums for that song (Phil Collins put down that track).

Anyway, Midge is playing an acoustic set at Cactus Cafe Sunday. I am excited. His 2004 album is on slow-burn in my catalog, lots of variety there and some real gems, dark to pop. Allegedly, there will be stories told and songs old and new. “Fade to Grey” is a desert island song for me. Pretty, pretty, pretty excited.

Here is a track from the last solo album called Fragile.
