Saturday night folks! There’s only one place you should be come the end of the night (after you attend the PRIDE parade, of course): Barracuda for our Back to School Bash. Our label is about to celebrate it’s 10th official release with Mean Jolene…but ATH is also a home to teachers, so we wanted to celebrate back to school! What better way than to bring out the bands on our label and throw a big party with our friends from 101x Homegrown, who’ve graciously supported the label since its inception. You’ll have 8 bands, 2 stages, so please come celebrate with us. The night will include sets from Pollen Rx, Mean Jolene, Rose Selavy, Plantation Band, Young Girls, Basketball Shorts, Summer Salt and Shivery Shakes. If you’re not in town, be sure to check out our little stable of great Austin acts HERE. And stream the latest label hit from MJ below.
Doors are at 9 PM and it’s a measly $5. I’ll be on hand to sell you stuff.

I get it. Being a musician is hard, owning a venue is hard. But that’s anywhere in the world, even in Austin. But, while we have struggles here in town, we also have an e abundance of incredible acts popping up left and right. Flavorsound has organized a Class of 2016 Tape Compilation of the new bands that burst forth this year…including some of the acts on ATH Records like Plantation Band and Mean Jolene. It’s surely not an end all – be all list, but there’s great finds on the tape. So to celebrate, they’re throwing a release show at Barracuda tomorrow night featuring many of the acts…Planet Manhood, Lola Tried, Oozer, Mean Jolene, Vampyre and Sherman’s March. Stop by and check out some of the new sounds coming out of Austin. And if you live abroad, check out the Tape HERE or stream below.
The last few years in Austin have seemed like a downer, everyone worrying about how the music scene here is dying. Well, I know it’s troublesome, but that’s not an Austin-centric issue. So let’s look on the bright side with Flavorsound Productions releasing a compilation of theClass of 2016. These are all acts that either got their start in 2016; you can tell by listening that while things are tough for the artists, there’s still an abundance of talented acts everywhere you look. We even have a hand in releasing a few of these acts, like Plantation Band and Mean Jolene (coming soon). Stream the whole compilation below, and see what Austin is really all about.
They’ll have a tape release of the compilation on August 12th over at Barracuda, so be on hand to get yours.
