Show Preview: Disappears @ Red 7 (9.18)


Date Wednesday, September 18th
Location Red 7
Doors 9:00 PM
Tickets $10 from Red 7

Let’s be honest Austin, there’s tons of shows coming and going from here until December, but, I’m going out on a limb and saying that this is definitely a show you cannot miss!  The openers, The Young, are from Austin, so that’s always good to go out and support, but the two co-headliners, Disappears and Weekend, are just ridiculously good.  Both bands have released incredible records (Era and Jinx respectively) within the last couple of months, and both of those albums should pop up on every year-end list, if the music world knows what’s good for it. It’s going to be loud, but it’s going to be beautiful, making Wednesday night’s show something you’ll regret if you don’t find yourself at Red 7.

Weekend Gets Mellow–Sort Of

weekOkay, so 24 hours later and this track is probably old news, but you can’t escape the fact that it’s simply just a great song.  While the first Weekend effort was simply noisy, it looks like the next effort is going to perhaps go a little softer, maybe.  Yes, there’s that dark sense of post-punk brooding from the start, but a little bit into the track and the guitar begins to soften the approach, cutting in and out of the background.  And when you hear the vocals, it’s a nice change to hear the clarity, though the affecting quality still remains.  The band will release their second LP, Jinx, via Slumberland Records on July 23rd–get ready to rave about this release.
