Nathan has announced that Feverbones is back and that they will be releasing new material soon on ATH Records. We are all really excited by this, they are remarkably talented musicians and it shows through with every song. It also means that you will be able to see them about town, so a benefit show at Mohawk with White Denim headlining and our friends Pollen RX playing next door at Cheer Up seemed like a perfect excuse to get together and take in a Feverbones set and get a quick band portrait.
So, I have just a few thoughts after the break with plenty of pics…
Let’s just throw this out there…you have no idea how excited we are over at the ATH Records team to be working with Feverbones. Abram Shook and his old project the Great Nostalgic were one of our favorite acts when we first started this site 10 years ago. That alone makes it worth it, but you also get Chris Cox and Matthew Shepherd who’ve got an accomplished resume on their own (Adam Torres, Monk Parker, Dana Falconberry, Astrobleme, etc.). We’ll be releasing their new LP in early 2018…but why tell you now? Well, you can sample the band’s sound by listening to their 2014 EP below…plus, the trio hits the stage on Saturday night at the Mohawk, opening for White Denim. You can grab early tickets HERE.

We like to promote the greater Austin community, despite being told there isn’t one. So today we’re encouraging you to hit up Cheer Up Charlies to party down for the release of True Sincerity #1, a quarterly journal by our friend Bryan over at Pop Press International. Not only is he working on putting out a great little local zine, but he’s also organizing a great show to celebrate. The line-up is full of bands we all love: it features: Borrisokane, Feverbones, Alex Napping, Tele Novella and Major x 3. It’s a night to enjoy local revelry and celebrate the creativity of like-minded individuals in town. Plus, it’s a chill spot to hang. Here’s a hit from Major Major Major to get you amped. The show is free, with a suggested donation.
