Show Preview: Perfume Genius @ Lamberts (3/27)

Date Tuesday, March 27th
Location Lamberts
Doors 930p
Tickets $12 from Frontgate

Mike Hadreas has quietly (that applies to his music too!) been making waves in the indie music community, crafting these beautiful mini-suites on his piano as Perfume Genius.  For me, it’s some of the more moving material that’s come out in the last several years, but that’s just personal opinion.  Luckily we can all (well, not all because Lamberts is tiny) witness him in his humble glory as he heads to Austin on Tuesday night; I have a feeling that it’s going to be a really special performance.  You’ll also get to enjoy Parenthetical Girls opening, so please get there early to support them!

Show Review: Grimes @ Lambert’s (2/29)

I believe that the blogosphere is quite abuzz with Grimes. Canadian Claire Boucher is working hard right now, she is in demand. That is why the relatively small space afforded by Lambert’s must have been an early, but fortunate, booking. It was fortunate because it was such an intimate space for Grimes and openers Born Gold, but unfortunate because more could have said that they got to see her before SxSW this year.

There were sound issues, weird and then no lighting, props galore for the opener, shoulder to shoulder dancing and many happy fans. Buzz.

Date Wednesday, Feb. 29th
Location Grimes
Doors 930p
Tickets SOLD OUT!!

It’s a shame and a bonus that the much heralded Grimes is playing at Lamberts on Wednesday evening.  On the plus side, she sold the show out rather quickly, but on the down side, fewer people will get to experience the hubbub surrounding the young singer.  Still, those that adored her recent album, Visions, will probably get to see one of  her more intimate shows on this tour; you’ll all be luckily packed in tight to see her performance.  Opening the night is another excellent act, Born Gold, so don’t get all Austin and skip out on the opener. Didn’t see any tickets on Craigslist yesterday, but people sure seemed willing to sell tickets for some Drake character. Sample some joyous tunes from Grimes.

Show Pics: Milagres/Peter Wolf Crier @ Lambert’s

It was an admittedly small show with a fairly unknown line up. But both bands have been featured here at Austin Town Hall, so we figured it was worth taking a look. Milagres and Peter Wolf Crier were in town and played Lambert’s. I figured a good Guinness pour and a barstool would do nicely the night before the TX/OU game. I met some people, heard some stories and listened to some music. Perfect.

Pics and a couple more notes from the show after the jump…

Great show going down tomorrow night at Lambert’s featuring a dual headlining spot by Peter Wolf Crier and Milagres.  Both of these bands have been readily spotlighted on ATH over the years so we are obviously pumped for the show.  I’m not seeing any word about opening support so I’m not sure if you’ll get one of those or not.

Show Preview: Nurses @ Lambert’s (10/4)

Date 10/4/11
Location Lambert’s
Doors 9:30pm
Tickets $10 @ Frontgate

It really is a crazy night in Austin with tons of shows for you to choose from in a variety of styles.  The show getting down at Lambert’s featuring indie-pop hit makers Nurses should definitely be one of the sets on your radar.  Joining the band to co-headline this show is fellow indie buzz band Dominant Legs.  Rounding things out and opening up the show you’ll get locals Boyfrndz.

Show Preview: Scattered Trees @ Lamberts’s (8/8)

Date 8/8/11
Location Lamberts
Doors 930pm
Tickets $10 @ Frontgate

Up and coming indie band Scattered Trees are making a stop into Austin tonight at Lambert’s and I’d recommend checking it out.  Touring and playing in support on the night is Alternate Routes.  Sure some of you may be thinking about that Decemberist’s show, but I think I’d pick this one instead.  Just sayin’.

Show Preview: Moondoggies @ Lamberts (1/22)

Date 1/22/11
Location Lamberts
Doors 10pm
Tickets $5 @ Door

Those Seattle kids known as Moondoggies are making their way into Austin at Lamberts on Saturday night. The guys are of course stopping in town to support their latest release on Hardly Art Tidelands.  We can’t seem to find any info about opening bands here so I’d suggest getting to the venue on time friends.
