Tuesday Night in ATX: Two Great Shows

amenLooking at the schedule, there’s tons of great acts gracing our town this week, and Tuesday night is no exception.   You’ve got a couple of great traveling shows coming through, one featuring a great local act that you should keep your eyes on.  Amen Dunes comes into town with Axxa/Abraxas in tow, which is likely to be a huge success for both bands.  They’re both coming in support of recent 2014 releases, with AD celebrating Love, and Axxa performing their self-titled debut; that show takes place over at the Hotel Vegas.  But, don’t sleep on Streets of Laredo, who’ll be headlining a gig at the Mohawk with one of our favorites, Reservations.  Looks like a great evening for us all…so be sure to partake in the good music. Here’s a tune from Axxa/Abraxas to get you into the mood.

New Stomper from Axxa/Abraxas

axxaabraxasFriday’s are for two things here in Austin: you either get weird or you get fun, or you can do both if you’re so inclined.  I think the latest track to come from Axxa/Abraxas accomplishes both, thus making my day; it’s one of those tunes that stretches over several genres, ambling between psychedelia and roots rock and pop forms.  Personally, I like the percussion, giving the track a little bit of a sideways stomp that really ups the energy level.  It’s just one of the great tunes that comes from the band’s self-titled album, which is being released by Captured Tracks on March 4th.
