Fun Rocker From Gal Pals

UntitledThis new jam entitled “Punisher”, from former Austin based lady rock group Gal Pals, is an easy one to get into.  At its core the song is a punk rocker with some pop elements thrown in to keep things catchy.  We will forgive you for moving to L.A. and confess that we still think you are great.  Stay out of the sun.

Pick up the Gal Pals debut album, Velvet Rut, on February 24th via Papercup Music.

Show Preview: Ringo Deathstarr @ Mohawk (3.31)

ringoThe folks over at Mohawk are dedicating themselves to keeping things fun and local on Monday nights, bringing you another great gig in their Showoff Series.  First, let me just tell you that the show is FREE, so you get to enjoy some great bands and spend all your money on booze and MERCH!  But, this Monday’s show has some incredible local acts, and one we’ll all need to say goodbye to.  Ringo Deathstarr is the headliner on the night, and the band needs no introduction; they’re one of the many rad acts across town.  But, you need to come say goodbye to Gal Pals, who unfortunately are relocating due to career opportunities.  We love the duo, and we wish them all the best on their new ventures.  Also, Hola Beach will kick off the night, rounding out a line-up that’s worth your time.  See you there.

Contest! The Babies @ Mohawk (12.14)

Date Friday, December 14th
Location Mohawk
Doors 9:00 PM
Tickets $8 from Mohawk


We’re drawing to the very end of what has been a great season of rock n’ roll, and what better way to wrap things up with a visit from The Babies.  The part Vivian Girls, part Woods, super group blasts into town fresh off the release of their very excellent Our House on the Hill.  Their music alone would be reason to go to this show, but we’ve also got the benefit of some incredible openers, namely Deep Time and Gal Pals.

Interested parties can enter our contest for a ticket with accompanying +1.  Simply leave a comment about anything you want, and we’ll pick a winner the morning of the show.  Good luck!

Show Preview: Thee Oh Sees @ La Zona Rosa (9.15)


Date Saturday, September 15th
Location La Zona Rosa
Doors 8 PM
Tickets $15 @ La Zona Rosa


This is by and large the show of the week. Sure, Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall have both made their way through town several times in the last few months, but I don’t think a single person that’s caught these two acts will tell you they wouldn’t willingly see the band over and over again.  Plus, the new record from Thee Oh Sees, Putrifiers II, is pretty killer, so hopefully we’ll get some new jams live in their set, not to mention Ty guests on it, so he’ll probably guest on stage.  And if you need another reason, check out locals Gal Pals and Fleshlights rocking things out in true Austin fashion.  Looks like I just gave you plans for Saturday night.
