Feel like I neglected Austin last week, so wanted to make up for it by sharing a couple of the tunes that’ve been chilling for the last two weeks; we’ve got new tunes from Queen Serene and Gentleman Rogues.
Queen Serene began as Sarah Ronan’s new bedroom project, but as you can tell by the darkened post-punk sounds here, things have been fleshed out into a full on rock n’ roll hotbed. Love the way this tune goes back and forth between sort of slinky early 80s sounds and a driving guitar exploration that recalls acts like Television.
Gentleman Rogues have just teamed up with Snappy Little Numbers, and dammit if they didn’t go and try to one-up their label by creating the snappiest little pop rock tune. The track hits with a heavy mix that puts the guitars right up front. Perfect for all you pop rock fans, the new 7″ drops on April 1st.

Incredible show going down tomorrow night at Red 7 with what might be the best bill in town for the evening. Sure Of Montreal is playing across the street, but when you can rock out with Mind Spiders, Gentleman Rogues, and Broken Gold all in one evening, count me in. Oh and did I mention it only costs $7? That’s a bargain basement price for what is sure to be a show you won’t forget. See you at Red 7.

I’ll be sad if you people aren’t taking advantage of all this free rock n’ roll! Here’s my suggestions for tonight’s shows! Read more
Over here at ATH we’ve been raving about Tiger Waves for some time, but we hadn’t seen the young band in the live setting just yet. So, we jumped at the chance to catch the boys over at Frank, along with a few other local Austin acts, Milk Thistle and Gentleman Rogues.
Read on for our thoughts.
