Show Preview: Here We Go Magic @ the Parish (6/19)

Date Saturday, Feb 15th
Location The Parish
Doors 800 pm
Tickets $12 from Frontgate

We’ve been huge fans of Here We Go Magic for years, so we’re always going to encourage you to get out and see their live shows.  The group’s got something going live, with Luke Temple orchestrating vibrant music with his band, creating joying pop music that everyone can appreciate. They come into town supporting their recent release, A Different Ship, which came out a short while ago on Secretly Canadian.  Also making an appearance will be Austin’s Hundred Visions and Moonlight Gram, who I can’t seem to find anything on, but I love a good Field of Dreams reference.  See you Tuesday folks.

Wu-Tang Clan @ Emo’s (12/11)

Date 12/11/10
Location Emos
Doors 8pm
Tickets Sold Out!

Saturday night at Emo’s is home to one of the most random lineups I can remember in recent history.  For starters the insane Wu-Tang Clan will be headlining outside with fellow hip-hop acts MC Overlord, Phranchyze, and Riders Against the Storm.  Then the inside stage will feature some of Austin’s hot indie bands in the form of White Denim, The Authors, and Hundred Visions.  I never thought I’d be saying White Denim and Wu-Tang in the same sentence…  Unfortunately tickets are only currently available for the inside stage so maybe you can sneak between the two stages?  My guess is that security will be a little more strict on the big difference in price between the two shows.

TV Torso @ Emo’s (5/15)

Date 5/15/10
Location Emos
Doors 9:30pm
Tickets $5 @ Ticketweb

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.
