Austin’s finest …And You Will Know us by Trail of Dead are playing a sure to be rowdy Waterloo in-store on Tuesday. Things are set to kick off around 5pm with all the free beer you can drink. The show coincides with the release of the band’s latest LP Century of Self, which we reviewed yesterday. If you’d like to know more about the band, check out a recent interview we did with the guys during Fun Fest.
To start off the week, Austin will be visited by Broken Spindles. The man behind the band is Joel Peteresen, better known for his participation in The Faint. Opening acts will be Loxsly and New Roman Times. The show kicks off at 8 PM at The Mohawk. Tickets are $8 at the door.
Our favorite resident DJ man Car Stereo(Wars) is bringing down the house with a special Valentine’s Day show at The Beauty Bar this Saturday night. Doors for the dance party open up at 9pm. Forget your silk panty rose and take your girl to the dance party!

We here at Austin Town Hall try to get a show together once in a blue moon, and now felt like the right time to get things going again. This time around we’ve brought Opposite Day, Whitman, and Frantic Clam to Hole in the Wall this Friday night for a sure to be killer set. The show will only run you $2, so put down that Friday the 13th box set and get your live music on. If we don’t see you there, we’ll do to you what Jason did to Kevin Bacon…
