Show Preview: BOAN Album Release @ Cheer Up’s (TONIGHT)

boanSo you’re looking for some show to fill your Friday night with magic, but don’t know where to go to make it a great night. Well, look no further than to the sleek electro pop of locals BOAN, who are celebrating the release of their album, Mentiras, over at Cheer Up Charlie’s tonight with the help of fellow Austinites Silent Diane, as well as DJ’s Sam De La Rosa and Bill Converse. Just one listen to the title track from this new record out now on Holodeck Records and you’ll understand why this is the place you need to be tonight: the synths layer atop each other and smoothly work to create a groove you’ll be willing to get pretty sweaty jamming to. Doors are at 8pm and donations are accepted as payment for entry. More details here.

Show Preview: Pure X @ the Scoot Inn (10/28)

Date Friday, October 28th
Location Scoot Inn
Doors 800p
Tickets $10 from Thundertix

I know that there’s tons of great shows in town this weekend, but one of the better local shows features some pretty prominent bands.  First off, you’ll get Pure X headlining the gig, and they’ve received a lot of great press nationally, not to mention from this writer in particular.  Also on the bill is popular up-and-comer, SleepOver, who’ve just released their latest record.  Then, you’ll get a bunch of other acts like Silent Diane, Survive and Children of the Grave, all of which comes your way via the most excellent folks over at Scoot Inn.  If you’re free Friday, there’s only one place to be.
