Show Pics: Washed Out @ The Mohawk (5/10)

Washed Out puns ruled the night as the rain came down by the bucket load. The drainage holes in the east side wall of The Mohawk couldn’t keep up and the patio turned into a shallow pool. I have to give it up for these fans, they stayed, they got soaked to the bone and they had fun.

Dog Bite was able to avoid the weather with their opening set, while Memoryhouse had to play through the worst of it.

Show Preview: Twin Sister @ Emos (8/23)

Date Monday, August 23rd
Location Emos
Doors 900p
Tickets $10 @ the Door

This show is surely going to be all the rage, even though I haven’t seen too many people talking about it.  Twin Sister has been blowing up the Interwebs with their fuzzy pop.  It seems like everyone has positive things to say, and that’s definitely not bad for an up-and-coming act.  Also featured on the bill is Memoryhouse and Sleepover, so you’re sure to get an evening of really well crafted atmospheric pop music.  Honestly, this show has the potential to be one of those shows we’ll be talking about in Austin for the rest of the month.
