For those of you recovering from a weekend hangover and looking for a good show, head on over to The Parish on Sunday night for a nice show put together by local station KVRX. The lineup features a slew of great local talent in the form of The Young, Sleep Good, Belaire, East Cameron Folkcore, and The White White Lights. It’s rare that you’ll get to see this much talent in one night for such a cheap price.

Wow, it’s been several years since we’ve heard even a peep from Austin band Belaire. We here at ATH always loved the band’s live performances and their limited number of physical releases available. Well now the band is back with a new LP entitled Resonating Symphony due out next week on April 21st via local label Indierect Records. Until that time, here’s the latest single from the group “This Could Take All Night” which features some tasty pop hooks and irresistible lead female vocals that remind us why we fell in love with this band many years ago.
Also on April 21st, the band are planning a record release show at 29th Street Ballroom in ATX. The show is only $10 at the door, music is at 10pm, and fellow locals Good Field and Deep Time will provide opening support.

We just discovered that the White Denim show posted on the Mohawk website is actually a free by RSVP show put on by ATX Converge. The lineup is pretty dang impressive: White Denim, Black Joe Lewis, Freshmillions and Belaire will all be on hand. The show isn’t until Friday, but you better RSVP now before the window closes. Make sure you get in line early since those RSVPs rarely guarantee you get in anything. Doors are at 8.
The time has come to throw on your tap shoes and join the ladies of Tilly and the Wall (there are two men too) at Emos this Thursday night. Their folk-pop tap dancing troupe is sure to brighten your evening, or at least give you an excuse to get out of the house for a little bit. And, you’ll be able to catch up with Austinites Belaire and Ringo Deathstarr for this exciting evening of music.
You can check out our recent review of their latest album O to see what we think and sample some tunes.
