Show Preview: Ne Hi @ Red 7 – Tonight

nehi

Date 8.24.15
Location Red 7
Doors 8 PM
Tickets $8 at the Door


You’ve only got one week left to enjoy Red 7; it closes at the end of this week.  Still, there’s a few great shows left for you, like the one this evening featuring Ne Hi.  They released this arty piece of post-punk earlier this summer, which garnered the Chicago act a lot of praise; I think it’s been well deserved. They’re working on a new album, but they wanted to see your pretty faces before finishing it up.  Oh, and if you show up early you get treated to one of the great many local treasures, The Zoltars.

Show Spotlight: Royal Headache @ Red 7 (TONIGHT!!!)

Royal HeadacheIt’s pretty hard to pick a show of the week when the week is just getting started, but seriously, if you miss this show you’re going to regret it for the rest of the night.  One of our favorite local acts, Jonly Bonly is opening up, followed by their friends and rock n’ roll trio Bad Sports.  I’d go to a show to see both of those bands alone, but Royal Headache is coming! They’re an Aussie act, so you never know when you’ll be able to catch them.  But, they’re also blowing in to support their new LP, High (WYR?).  It’s the perfect blend of soul and post-punk, and the energy from Shogun on stage is something you won’t wanna miss. Please please come hang out. Doors are at 8 PM.

Say Hello To Sidewinder & Graham Williams

Red7It’s well known around these parts that our beloved music scene in Austin is ever changing, and though some may go into panic mode, we here at ATH understand that change is all part of the industry.  With that said, I’m sure many of you have heard the sad news about the closing of prized venue Red 7 come this September.  While we mourn the loss of one of our favorite venues in town, let us rejoice in the news of a new venue in the Red River District.  The newly crowned Sidewinder will open in October, shortly after the closing of Red 7, and will occupy a totally revamped and remodeled space formerly known as Red Eyed Fly.  With all the creative minds on the list of those involved, this is definitely something to be excited about.  The Chronicle was one of the first to break the news.

With all the craziness currently going on in and around Red River (Cheer Ups rock wall, closing of Holy Mountain/Red 7, new venues, etc.) it seemed like a great time to speak with someone in the know.  Step in Transmission Events founder Graham Williams.  We sent Graham a few questions about his new venue and the current state of the live scene in Austin.  He has a lot to say and any real music fan in town should take his thoughts into consideration.  After the jump you can get his thoughts.

We’re Not Dead Yet

StarfuckerThere has been a lot of talk recently about the scene and venues and closings and doom with gloom for good measure. +1 and I went out for an evening of music to hang with some friends and get our sweaty dance party on. At the beginning of the day, the two shows hadn’t sold out, but by mid-afternoon both the Tanlines show outside at Red 7 and the Starfucker show on the main stage at The Mohawk had sold out. That is kinda nuts given the heat, the lack of students and the summer doldrums that usually wreak havoc on venues. Yes, we got a big time batch of beats, friends and sweat.

Show Preview: Jacco Gardner/EZTV @ Red 7 (7.4)

Panache Booking July 4th Event 2015

Date 07.04
Location Red 7
Doors 9 pm
Tickets 10$ Here

So you’ve been invited to three different barbecues and four different Fourth of July parties, and you simply can’t choose which one to go to. Solution: hit up Red 7 with me and some of your friends and rock out for ‘Mericuh Day. Here is your chance to catch not just one or two great acts, but four. Jacco Gardner is riding high off his trippy psychedelic folk release, Hypnophobia, while EZTV are sure to melt your face with their crisp and angular guitar playing. Dinner, another Captured Tracks artist, will mix things up with his trippy new age electronica, while Lonely Life will start the evening off with a little hardcore punk. Since doors are late, swing by those parties and then head on over to catch this great lineup. What is more american than celebrating your love of the jams for a low low price? Nothing, that’s what. Except maybe apple pie. Maybe.

 

Show Review: Helio Sequence @ Red 7 (6/9)

With the weather warming up a bit, we decided it was best to attend the Helio Sequence with 3/4 of the ATH team in attendance; you’ve got to have strength in numbers in case you get dehydrated.  The band blew into town fresh on the heels of their latest, self-titled, album.  They brought along Portland’s Lost Lander as openers, and treated us to a set of hits and new favorites.

Tickets 12$ Here

Now, I know there are some good options as for show’s this Thursday night all around town, but if you’ve yet to see the crazy live energy that the boys of Twin Peaks from Chicago bring to the stage, then it’s time to head over to Red 7 for a night of dancing and jamming. If you’ve already seen ’em before, then you know what kind of a fun time you’re in for. Opening up for them are John Wesley Coleman and Modern Vices, the first of which will break things down with a little americana rock and the latter prepping you perfectly for Twin Peaks with a bit of lo-fi garage rock. Should be a great night.

Show Preview: Sungod @ Red 7 (5.22)

showLooking forward towards the weekend, as we all are, there’s a show that should be on your radar, making your list of must attend shows.  Sungod, who many missed (due to rain) at Levitation, will be playing Friday night at Red 7.  If I were to describe their sound, I’d throw it into the original landscape of organic psychtronica; it’s an entrancing sound that deserves your attention…and it’s only $5. Plus, the opening line-up of Crawl, Thousand Foot Whale Claw and Gods Gun.  Personally, I’m looking forward to the sounds of Gods Gun, who’ve been rather mysterious, though the band have prominent members about town such as Jose from Ssleeperhold/Boan. Want a show that explores some new sonic territory? Bring $5 and show up early for all the bands!
