Show Pics: 3 x 3 Series @ The Mohawk (8/31)

Rain CollectorsWe were lucky enough to find a way to get three local bands paid, get staff paid and treat everyone to a solid lineup for supah cheap. You have to love it when a plan comes together.

The Mohawk was kind enough to host our first 3 Bands for $3 along with sponsorship from Sailor Jerry. Drink specials were had, jams were played, jokes were told, new friends, old friends, everything we love about “the scene”. All the while, we had this great soundtrack from Twin Bitches, Rain Collectors and Que Pasa. I grabbed the Df, set it to monochrome and mounted the trusty 40/f2 Voigtlander to document the happenings on stage. Click through for pics a plenty.

Monday is the 3 x 3 @ Mohawk

3for3AugustThere’s been a lot of hubbub about the Austin music dying, so I got together with some friends over at Mohawk to try a different approach.  We scored a sponsorship from Sailor Jerry, and now we’re throwing the 3×3 Series.  It means you pay 3 bucks for 3 bands, and all money made at the door goes directly to the artists.  This week we’ve got a killer line-up to kick it off with Twin Bitches, Rain Collectors and Que Pasa.  Even if you only know one of the bands on the bill, they deserve your three bucks, and you might just find another band to love. Or, come enjoy all the great drinks at Mohawk. Since it’s Monday night, we also wanted to kick off the show semi-early.  Doors are at 8 PM and bands go on at 9.  See you there!

 

Austin Pets Alive Dating Auction

Team ATH loves the rescues; The Abita puppy was from Central Texas Catahoula Rescue and, IIRC, Miss Elliott Smith, aka Ellie, and Dezzie Ray are both Pets Alive pups. It is National Dog Day, after all.

Our friends at The Mohawk put together a fun little benefit to help Austin Pets Alive. It is a dating auction, 4th annual in fact, and what you do to that poor person you win on that date is up to you. Personally, it would be nice to have a minion for a few hours, but I would suggest taking your victims… dates to get tacos or pizza. Maybe a show next Monday night?

Head here for details. I am sure there will be beverage specials from Reyka and Sailor Jerry. #saferide
