Since the announcement of founding fathers Graham Williams and James Moody breaking off from Transmission Entertainment to start their company Margin Walker, we’ve all been awaiting the lineup and location for their new festival Sound on Sound. Well the wait is over today, and I’ve gotta say, this thing is super impressive with how fast they put it together. We of course love Beach House, Descendents, Wild Nothing, METZ, etc. etc. etc. I’m personally crapping my pants for Thursday! Just like Fun Fest use to deliver, this lineup gives a little something for everyone to enjoy and rivals all other festival lineups in town. Full lineup is attached on poster or via Sound on Sound’s website.
As far as location goes, Sound on Sound will take place at Sherwood Forest Faire just East of Austin in McDade, Texas.
Three day tickets are currently on sale via soundonsoundfest.com.
As the set time sheet at The Mohawk read, SOLD THE FUCK OUT. Three ticket agents were sitting out front asking for extra tickets. Guess the ticket agents are big Purity Ring fans.
Doors were at 7:30, but that was a last minute change from 6:30. That meant a giant line in for both doors and rail campers right away. I knew it would be a challenge to move through the masses, but I was ready to get smooth electro bounce BUZZ jams on in full effect. Young Magic started the night.

Look, I know all of Austin is excited for the SOLD OUT Purity Ring set at Mohawk, as I hear the band is a big deal. But, that being said, if you’re not sticking around afterwards or not headed into the venue when the show is over, you’re going to miss out on two of Austin’s most promising acts. We’ve been behind Black Books and Tiger Waves from the start, and the more each group progresses, the more we continue to be amazed by their performances. Plus, Tiger Waves head out on tour the next day to represent Austin, so we’ve gotta send our boys off on the right foot! I promise those of you with an appreciation for interesting pop music, you won’t want to skip out. Here’s a song by Tiger Waves and Black Books, respectively, just to entice you a bit more.
