Show Preview: Hospitality @ Red 7 (2.17)


Date Monday, Februrary 17th
Location Red 7
Doors 9:00 PM
Tickets $14 at the Door

So you’re bummed that you didn’t get tickets to the Neutral Milk Hotel show? Well, you can do the next best thing by joining us to catch their label mates, Hospitality.  They’re new album, Trouble, got a lot of love from our girl Nicole, and while it takes on a darker tone, it still has the same infectious sensibility as their first effort.  My personal highlight though is catch Air Waves, open, who we haven’t heard from in some time, but I’m sure that their tour indicates things are about to change.  Austin’s own Modrag will begin the night, so raise your spirits by catching the “other” best show in town.

SXSW comes earlier and earlier every year doesn’t it?  Prepared or not, the festival is right around the corner and of course we’re going to get you ready as best we can.  Interviews are a great way to get a varying perspective from band and I’m going to kick mine off today with one featuring Brooklyn upstart Clouder.  I haven’t know about these guys too long, but what I’m hearing, I’m digging big time.  Based on these interview responses, I think I might just like the guys even more.  Check it out after the jump.

Austin Spotlight: Party Plants Release EP

partyplantsYou want to keep Austin weird? Well, then the best way to do it is by realizing how great our odd-ball pop bands are.  The latest in the line of quirky music comes to us via Party Plants, who’ve just released a new EP.  Honestly, it reminds me of of the better parts of Presidents of the USA, which really isn’t a knock by any means.  There’s a definitive bounce to the tunes as well, giving the feeling a bit of liveliness that’s much needed to entertain in a live setting.  The band has also been building quite a name for themselves by playing all over town, with no bad reviews coming our way.  You can grab the EP HERE.

SXSW 2014 Interviews: Pains of Being Pure at Heart

D700-Pains-Ans-303SXSW is just a month away, and we’re already getting rather antsy. We decided to try and squeeze in as much coverage of the many bands coming into town as we could, so we sent off a bunch of interview questions to bands we think you need to keep an eye on.  Today, we bring you Kip from the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, one of our favorite acts of the past 5 years, not to mention one of SXSW’s hardest working bands.  Check it out for Kip’s responses… Read More

Austin Spotlight: Young Tongue

YoungTonguePicYou want to do what!?!  Many bands in the past have decided at one time or another to take the leap and change their name after copyright issues, lack of hits on google search, etc.  Today we’ve been told that local hit makers The Baker Family are moving on from their old ways and officially going by Young Tongue.  I personally think the change is for the better, but of course I never would have told them that before today….  So the band begin their new adventure with a new single called “Cat Calls” which can be found below.  I’d call it a great, driving, indie rock number that certainly won’t let anyone forget about these guys after the rebranding.

Young Tongue will be celebrating the release of their new single at Red 7  on February 22nd.  More info here.
