Show Preview: Jacco Gardner/EZTV @ Red 7 (7.4)

Panache Booking July 4th Event 2015

Date 07.04
Location Red 7
Doors 9 pm
Tickets 10$ Here

So you’ve been invited to three different barbecues and four different Fourth of July parties, and you simply can’t choose which one to go to. Solution: hit up Red 7 with me and some of your friends and rock out for ‘Mericuh Day. Here is your chance to catch not just one or two great acts, but four. Jacco Gardner is riding high off his trippy psychedelic folk release, Hypnophobia, while EZTV are sure to melt your face with their crisp and angular guitar playing. Dinner, another Captured Tracks artist, will mix things up with his trippy new age electronica, while Lonely Life will start the evening off with a little hardcore punk. Since doors are late, swing by those parties and then head on over to catch this great lineup. What is more american than celebrating your love of the jams for a low low price? Nothing, that’s what. Except maybe apple pie. Maybe.

 

Show Preview: Heathers @ Holy Mountain (7.2)

heatherA lot of talk this week will be about Blonde Redhead and Mono, but I think there’s a show that you don’t want to overlook, which will be a smaller scale show, but equally as good. We’ve been on the path of Heathers since they first started popping up in the small world of indiepop blogs, and I’m excited to see them play live…not to mention that they just released a new single; it’s like an indiepop version of the Replacements. They’ll be joined by Baby Bleu, Popper Burns and Good Talk, so you’ll get a nice dosage of great local acts too…plus it’s cheap, so save your money for beers at the Holy Mountain bar. Take a listen to this great new single.

Fun Night at the Mohawk Tonight – 5 PM

IMG_9665Tonight, and tonight only, you should come out and join us at Mohawk for some ATH DJ Session.  We’ll be playing some local vinyl, as well as my favorite garage, dance and indiepop hits…no laptops here folks.  But, as if joining us for Happy Hour at 5 PM wasn’t good enough to cure your Monday blues, our friends Plantation will be following our set indoors, joined by Ghost Bunny and Pleasures. Really, you could spend your whole night at Mohawk and have a blast.  Settle into your buzz while we play some hits, then enjoy some good tunes to round out the night. See you at 5 PM. Probably going to play this song.

ATX Weekend Show Spotlight

Austin Record Label Flea Market 2015

Flea MarketFirst, a HUGE thank you Marcus and the Transmission team, as well as all the friends at The Mohawk for their amazing hospitality for making their home our home for a day. Record Nerd Takeover!!!

By conversations I had during the day with patrons and vendors, it seems the Flea Market was a success. We were amazed with the support, despite the fact that we were up against some serious rain storms and potential flooding. It was a team effort and if the labels hadn’t bought into the idea, it would have been DOA. One recurring theme, let’s do it again.

But let’s take a quick look back, relive it if you were there or take a gander if you missed out.

First Annual Austin Record Label Flea Market

10479400_783936648390606_8423787667357574879_oThis Saturday is the First Annual Austin Record Label Flea Market; it’s at Mohawk, starting at 5 PM.  Entry is free, all ages welcome, and there will be 28 local Austin labels selling their wares, including some rare out-of-print pieces from a few of them.  There will be a great show following at 9 PM, which is also free. I’m one of the people responsible for this event, along with my friend Marcus at Transmission and Dan at Punctum Records.  So, with that in mind…here’s a few ideas on why I wanted to put this together…including a playlist with a sample from all the labels that are on Soundcloud.

Show Review: Other Lives @ The Mohawk (6.11)

Other LivesThursday had the ATH crew out in full swing to catch a night of great music and good times at The Mohawk. Early door times had openers taking the stage with the sun not quite yet set, but that didn’t deter Dark Rooms and Riothorse Royale from providing entertaining sets to a growing crowd for headliners Other Lives.

If you weren’t there for this night of stunning tunes, sucks to suck, but read on to see just what you missed out on. Or if you were lucky enough to be there, relive the night and click through some rad photos by the ineffable B.Gray.

Show Review: Helio Sequence @ Red 7 (6/9)

With the weather warming up a bit, we decided it was best to attend the Helio Sequence with 3/4 of the ATH team in attendance; you’ve got to have strength in numbers in case you get dehydrated.  The band blew into town fresh on the heels of their latest, self-titled, album.  They brought along Portland’s Lost Lander as openers, and treated us to a set of hits and new favorites.

Read on for more thoughts and plenty of bgray pics…

Show Pics: Geographer @ The Mohawk (5/30)

Jeez. So I was walking the dog, thinking about all the photos left to edit from X Games Austin and I realized that I still owed Geographer a Show Pics post. After a great set at FFF8, I was looking for ward to checking out the band in a smaller venue, my home venue, The Mohawk. Joining them for the show was Idle Hands, ATH faves Empires and a great aftershow lineup of Hovvdy and Woozy.

Click through, peeps.

Show Preview: Other Lives @ The Mohawk (6.11)

OtherLives-EmilyUlmer

Date 6.11.15
Location The Mohawk
Doors 7:00 pm
Tickets 15$ Here

Thursday night at the Mohawk is looking like it’s shaping up to be the place to be as far as shows go around Austin. Headliners and Oklahomans Other Lives are touring in support of their latest effort, Rituals, which showed the band going in an sultry electronic direction and featured a ton of tracks I’m excited to see fleshed out in a live setting. Not to mention the chance to hear the rest of the bands’ stunning catalogue of dark orchestral rock music. Opening up for them are Dark Rooms (Dallas) and Riothorse Royal (L.A), the likes of which should bring a variety of sounds to the night. I’ve included tracks by both of them below to entice you to show up early to the Mohawk tomorrow night.
