Date Friday, November 22
Location The Belmont
Doors 8:00 PM
Tickets $15 from Ticketfly


The season of rock n’ roll traveling shows is slowly drawing to a close, and there’s only a handful of really remarkable acts remaining on our Austin schedule (there’ll still be tons of great local shows as always).  One of the best acts to see, Cass McCombs, will be coming into town on Friday evening to play the Belmont. He’s touring behind his recent release Big Wheel and Others, which has some really incredible songs on it.  Personally, I find Cass to be really compelling live; I think the performances he gives make it well worth your time to make it out of the house on Friday.  Plus, you’ll get a chance to see Pink Nasty, one of our own local legends kick things off for the night.  Either way, it sounds like you win if you make it out!

Tickets Cheap?? @ Door

The Radar Brothers are back in business this year with their newest album The Illustrated Garden having already hit shelves earlier this year.  Now the guys are on tour in support and making an anticipated stop at The Mohawk on Wednesday night.  Joining the band are our very own dirty/indie/pop group Pink Nasty.  Not sure about cover charge, but it should be relatively cheap.

TV Torso @ EOAE & Mohawk (8/20)

tv_torso_photographer_tim_murrayWe recently ran a feature on new Austin band TV Torso so we’re excited to see that they’ll be playing two shows in Austin on Thursday.  The first is an End of an Ear in-store at 6pm followed by a full on headlining set at Mohawk later in the evening.  The Mohawk show also features locals Pink Nasty and fellow A2W band The Authors.  That show starts around 10pm on the inside stage.  Check our Artist to Watch feature on TV Torso for more information about the band.

goldenbearThis Friday, Golden Bear will be releasing their newest EP, Everest,  at Club Deville.  Not only will the locals be treated to the great tunes of Golden Bear, but they will also get to witness one of our favorite acts, as The Great Nostalgic will also be opening the evening’s festivities.  Rumor has it that Pink Nasty will be on hand to play a set as well.  Show begins around 9, so get there and have fun.
