Yeah, we were treated to some sweet jams. I went to eleven when Simian Mobile Disco‘s “Hustler” filled my ears. And thanks for reminding me how great Hot Chip sounds at club volume.
Learning Secrets turned ten years old. You should read the interview if you missed it, it explains things pretty good. Since so many friends were going to be in attendance, I had to bring the camera and a flash. That is right, I got all photo-tech on the people. We had bloggers, photogs, Transmissioners, DELOREAN, Until the Ribbon Breaks and most importantly plenty of people to dance.
Head past the break to see the party gallery…
Some great shows are sneaking up on us in the middle stretch of July…
The next we’d like to highlight is King Tuff headlining a four band loud-and-fast at Red7 next Monday night. Supporting King Tuff on the tour is Natural Child. They put down a bad ass set opening for Hunx & His Punx at Mohawk a few months back. Really looking forward to seeing them again with a King Tuff chaser.
Also on the bill are The Vomettes and The Best.

We are pleased to announce to all of you music fans and general do-gooders out there that ATH has jumped on the bandwagon and are sponsoring our very own Prints for Non Profits event on September 19th. If you have yet to attend one of these events, they take place at Tripps Custom Shirts (map) with $5 from every custom shirt purchase going to AIDS Services of Austin. Not familiar with AIDS? The Austin based company works to respond to the HIV needs of the Austin area by providing services that enhance the health and well-being of individuals and the community in the face of an evolving epidemic. We can entice you for the show even more with an offer of free Lone Star Beer and of course Sweet Leaf for you non drinking types. Your lineup for the evening includes some band we never talk about Whitman, along with Built by Snow and Markus with a K. Get there early and enjoy your Saturday evening because we know none of you can actually afford the UT game.
