Show Preview: Suckers @ Red 7 (5/25)

Date 5/25/12
Location Red 7
Doors 900p
Tickets $8 @ Frontgate

We’ve been looking forward to these guys coming back into town for quite some time now and we’re pleased to let everyone know that amigos Suckers are stopping into Austin on Friday night at Red 7.  As having seen this band live on more than one occasion, I can honestly tell you that $8 is well worth the cost.  Also entertaining your ears for the evening is boy genius Young Man and psych pop group Boyfrndz.  We’ll be there and so should you.

Show Preview: Nurses @ Lambert’s (10/4)

Date 10/4/11
Location Lambert’s
Doors 9:30pm
Tickets $10 @ Frontgate

It really is a crazy night in Austin with tons of shows for you to choose from in a variety of styles.  The show getting down at Lambert’s featuring indie-pop hit makers Nurses should definitely be one of the sets on your radar.  Joining the band to co-headline this show is fellow indie buzz band Dominant Legs.  Rounding things out and opening up the show you’ll get locals Boyfrndz.
