One of Austin’s finest up and coming bands TV Torso is playing at Emo’s on Saturday night along with some other great local talents. The hot buzz band will be joined by fellow locals Follow That Bird! and Hundred Vision(formerly Corto Maltese). Should be a solid night for the best talent Austin has to offer.

Our friend over at Austin Eavesdropper had such a good time with her first Blogger Bleet Up back in July that she decided to throw a bigger and better event leading up to Fun Fest on Thursday night. This go around anyone and everyone is invited and can gain entry with an RSVP and $7 cash. Bands have also been included for the event and include locals The Lennings, Built by Snow, Corto Maltese, Policitcs, Sad Accordions, and Great Nostalgic.

Mohawk is the place to be on Thursday night with solid bands playing on both the inside and outside stages. The outside stage features headliner Frightened Rabbit along with The Twilight Sad and We Were Promised Jetpacks. After the outside festivities shut down, the inside stage lineup includes locals Corto Maltese and buzz band Division Day. Now that’s how you get your monies worth.

We love the project over at Daytrotter, especially when they do work with local Austin bands. Corto Maltese is one of the younger bands around town who are making a name for themselves. Their Daytrotter session is full of four unreleased songs recorded during SXSW. Unfortunately, the band have no current shows lined up, but at least we have these new songs.

Local boys Loxsly have been garnishing a lot of positive publicity as of late and are finally ready to drop a proper LP on our ears. To celebrate the release of the album, Tomorrow’s Fossils, the band is putting on a release party at Mohawk on Friday night. Fellow local bands Oh No Oh My, Booher and the Turkeyz (Mike Booher from now dead Zykos), Corto Maltese, and TV Torso are also on the bill. Damn, that’s one helluva lineup. Show starts at 8pm and tickets will be sold only at the door. Here’s newest single from Loxsly “Battalions”.

Looks like local buzz band White Denim are going to start playing regularly around town again after taking a little break from the Austin scene. The Parish is one of the few places I can’t remember the band playing and the venue should provide a unique experience to see the band. Fellow locals Corto Maltese and Ume will be opening things up. Doors are at 9:30 with music at 10:30. Tickets are on sale now for $9 if you’re of age and $12 if you’re still illegal.
