Show Preview: The Rich Hands Album Release @ Hotel Vegas (

richhands

Date Saturday. May 24th
Location Hotel Vegas
Doors 9:00 PM
Tickets $5


One of our favorite acts of the last few months, and really for the last several has been San Antonio’s The Rich Hands.  We caught up with them before they came to kick it in Austin for SXSW, and we’ve covering their singles leading up to the release of Out of My Head.  Good news! Not only is the album out, but they’ll also be celebrating its release this Saturday night at Hotel Vegas.  They’ll be joined by ATH faves, Grape St, as well as other acts we support like Lochness Mobsters, Rolland Hazzard, Mitch Frazier and His Radiation.  The show’s cheap, and the music’s great. Be sure to buy the album from the band…gas to San Antonio is expensive!

Austin Spotlight: Harvest Thieves Ready 7″

harvestthievesIf you’ve been keeping track of the Americana music scene in Austin the last few years you’ve surely heard of Harvest Thieves.  If you haven’t, then now’s your chance to join us as we prepare for the release of the band’s upcoming split 7″ with Sam Cassidy.  On the local act’s side, you get this sensible piece of rock n’ roll wearing hints of country heritage on the sleeve; there’s a nice bit of piano working in the background too, helping fill out the sound.  If, like us, you’re enjoying what you hear, then you should check out the group’s release show on June 5th over at Holy Mountain.  They’ll be joined by other great local acts such as A. Sinclair and Lowin.

Upload Eels 20140515231005Friday night at the Paramount we were treated to two unique artists in Chelsea Wolf and Eels, though they were both different in their approach and delivery.  That being said, I’m pretty sure every audience member left with a smile on their face.  Thanks to David Hall for grabbing some photos for us.

Austin Spotlight: A. Sinclair Premiere New Single

asinclairThe time is near folks. In fact, in less than 24 hours you’ll be able to get your hands on the brand new Pretty Girls EP from Austin’s A. Sinclair.  We’ve been writing quite a bit about the group lately, as we’re really excited to see the increased output from the band, not to mention their growing maturity in songwriting.  Today we bring you a brand new song, “Throwing Up on the Ground,” which features more twang than the previous two singles the band have released.  It demonstrates the careful balance between the band’s influences and their ability to rock live.   And, speaking of rocking, the band will be doing just that, live at the Mohawk this Thursday, celebrating the release of the brand new EP; they’ll be joined by Otis and the Destroyer, Chasca, and the Docs.

Austin Spotlight: Walker Lukens Remix Premiere

Walker-Lukens-1After an excellent year with the release of his album, Devoted, Walker Lukens has decided to up the ante by releasing a six song Devoted Remixed EP.  It’s going to be a short little stop-gap in his writing process, offering up remix versions of 6 album tracks, revised, so to speak.  Our premiere brings you “Lover (Two Dudes in Love Remix),” which demonstrates the care and detail on the tracks within the EP; it’s a much sparser version of the original, leaving lots of empty space for beats and loops to move within.  The remix, as the title indicates, was completed by San Francisco production team of Two Dudes In Love. He’ll be offering up the EP on May 27th, with a special release show on May 31st at Stubbs; the show will also feature locals Ruby Jane and Hello Wheels.  Take your time with this tune, and if you’ve got it, go back and visit Devoted…then thank us later.

Show Preview: The Migrant Kids @ Mohawk (5.12)

migrant

Date Monday, May 12th
Location Mohawk
Doors 9:00 PM
Tickets $6 at the Door


We’ve written about Austin’s Migrant Kids many a post, so we don’t really need to harp on the act much more, other than you’ll miss out on their set if you don’t stay through the night.  But, what caught my eye on the line-up was BE Godfrey‘s EP release.  I posted about one of his new tracks last week, and it’s definitely something that warrants your listening, both at the Mohawk, and at home.  Where else could you pick it up but from the artist himself? They’ll also be joined by Austin’s Silver Ships opening the night up, so you’ve got a great set of mellow jams to enjoy all night long..perfect way to slide into the work week.

Austin Spotlight: Another OBN IIIs Single

obnThis song probably no longer needs an introduction from us.  If you’ve been reading our site you know we’ve got nothing but praise for local act, OBN IIIs.  Long has the band blown us away with their live shows, but the work on their newest album, Third Time to Harm, should illustrate to everyone that the group is more than just a hot live act; they’ve got killer songs to boot (we’ve known that for a long time).  I think this song captures the rock appeal while still showing a penchant for lyrics that you’ll want to scream while you’re jumping up and down at their shows. Pick up their new record on May 27th via Tic Tac Totally.
