Show Preview: Shivery Shakes EP Release @ the ND (3/3)

Date Saturday, March 3rd
Location The ND
Doors 900 pm
Tickets $7 @ the Door

Those of you that didn’t see me raving yesterday about the excellent new EP from Shivery Shakes, then you should definitely check out our REVIEW.  But, for those of you also looking for a great local show, you need to head to the ND on Saturday night.  You’ll get the jangling sun-pop of Shivery Shakes, not to mention a chance to grab their EP, but you also get to see some other local acts like Sleep Good and Burgess Meredith.  BOY, who I’ve heard wonderful things about, will also be joining the festivities. Oh, and the first 50 through the door can grab a cool package with a poster, EP, and buttons included!

Show Preview: Great Nostalgic @ Emo’s (4/2)

Date 4/2/11
Location Emos
Doors 8pm
Tickets $6 @ Door

We here at ATH are such huge fans of Austin band The Great Nostalgic that we’ve almost taken it as our personal mission to help grow their populairty.  With a debut record so forward thinking and creative, it’s been easy to support them as best we can.  This Saturday at Emo’s, the group is celebrating the release of their sophomore effort Hope We Live Like We Promised with a headlining show supported by some other local buzz bands.  Joining GC on stage are Burgess Meredith, One Hundred Flowers, and recent ATH fave Royal Forest.  With a great lineup, cheap door fee, and even cheaper tall boys, you should be there.  We haven’t gotten around to a proper review of the new album yet, but we’ve gotten a snew preview, and can guarantee that it’s going to be a huge leap forward for the band.  Why not pick up a copy at the show?

Show Preview: Dignan @ the Mohawk (8/29)

Date Sunday, August 29th
Location Mohawk
Doors 1000p
Tickets $? at the door

It seems that Texas’ Dignan has been rocking around the state for years and years, and we’ve grown quite fond of their explorative alternative rock.  Their newest tunes show a great deal of attention being given to every minor detail, which works out great for the group’s sound.  You’ll get  a chance to see them Sunday night in all their glory, accompanied by Farewell Flight and Burgess Meredith.  Make sure you make it out, as we hear school’s back, so you might not get out on too many more Sunday nights.
