Another Track From Béisbol

I just saw Beisbol last friday after the Baths show. They were good. They mentioned another track that would be available for download. They played the track and I liked it. The Portland group based around the Brothers Burian are nice people.

Anyway, more catchy jam action, this time a little lower in the tempo department. You can stream the whole album, Lo-Fi Cocaine, over on their Soundcloud. Go see them if you get a chance. Tell ’em the photo guy in Austin that made them stand in front of walls sent you.

Show Review: Baths @ The Mohawk (6/21)

Sure, it was hot. The Mohawk didn’t sell out, but it got close while still being a “comfortable crowd”, as I call it. It means you can mill about, check out different vantage points with out territorial conflict.

The busy lineup with D33J, Houses, Baths and Beisbol meant a doors to close night for your truly. I took plenty of pics, saw plenty of friends, maybe had a whisky and saw some great music. Join me as I (unsuccessfully) reminisce on a successful Friday night.

Show Preview: Baths @ Mohawk (6/21)

baths_obsidian_press_final_1_low-e1371504802775

Date 6/21/13
Location Mohawk
Doors 8pm
Tickets $15 @ Door

A little late notice on this one, and I offer my apologies, but you should head over to Mohawk this evening if you’re looking for a great show on a Friday night. Baths is the headliner and clearly the big draw, though you shouldn’t forget about the loaded undercard with Houses and D33J in support. You won’t find a much better show anywhere in town.

Photoguy Note: Beisbol is playing inside after. Stick around to check them out.

Summer Jam from Béisbol

We provide your No Bummer soundtrack…

Béisbol is a brother duo based out of Portland, Jeff and Ryan Burian, brings us the latest song I will share as a background music to your summer. This has a tinge of Italian disco in the bassline and plenty of catchy Indie hooks to get you bobbing in time.

The bros will play the Baths aftershow at The Mohawk next week.
