Show Preview: Bloody Knives @ Scoot Inn (8/23)

Date Tuesday, August 23rd
Location Scott Inn
Doors 900p
Tickets $5 at the Door

One of the bands that seems to have flown beneath the radar in the Austin scene is Bloody Knives.  Their fusion of shoegaze, post-punk, noise, ambient, etc is hands-down one of the most unique sounds in our nation, let alone our little town.  They’ll be putting on an exciting show over at Scoot Inn, and before hordes of Longhorns begin to fill out the bars, you should jump at the chance to see these guys; they can’t be our little secret for too much longer!  Also on the bill are other great local acts, The Vessel and Real Book Fake Book. Come on folks, now’s our time to get behind our local scene.

New Music from Bloody Knives

It’s been a really miserable day, weather-wise, in Austin today, so it’s only fitting that I’m here to give a shout-out to one of Austin’s rising bands, Bloody Knives.  The group is a duo, and deal predominantly with sort of an electronic rock element, but not in a cheesy manner.  There is an underlying sense of urgency, accompanied by doom in the driving beats, yet the melodic vocals that pop in and out of the track below provide the perfect bit of balance for listeners.  You can, and should, get your hands on this track when you purchase the group’s split 7″ with Me You Us Them.  And, if you like what you hear, you can get a free album from the group on their SITE, though we encourage you to go with the pay option to help support the artists.
