This year, the 4th of July falls on a Thursday, which means this Wednesday (7/3) is really your Friday…sort of. That means an excuse to hit the town in the middle of the week, and there’s a night of great tunes going down at Stubb’s Jr. If you haven’t heard of Charly Bliss, you’ve been clearly living under a rock for the past few years, as they’ve been making waves in the indie rock world, especially as of late with their killer sophomore LP,Young Enough, which will surely be topping some ‘Best of’ lists this year. Power pop with high energy vocals await you for the low low price of 15 dollars if you buy a ticket today, plus it’s inside and air conditioned, so there’s really no reason not to show up. Doors are at 8pm, Emily Reo opens, tickets can be purchased here. Take a listen to some tunes below.
Much like grocery shoppers in Austin a decade ago, Teen Daze has gone organic. The latest track off the album Morning World (due 8/14) to be unveiled on the intarwebs is called “Along”. It has a dreamy light-hearted version of Pink Floyd feeling to it. It is pretty, it is different. Is this the sound in his head that synths filled before he pull it off musically or just a mindshift…
We’ll see what happens to the older material, will it be updated to be earthy, when Teen daze comes through town to play Stubb’s Jr on 9/30.
Wednesday night at Stubbs Jr. offered a bill of three gracious acts that seemed to be happy to be playing to the live music scene of Austin, let alone to a crowd that was quite amped up. While the crowd was ready for almost anything, the bill didn’t stray far from the indie and synth pop that Miniature Tigers put out, and each opening act did exactly their job as openers; tantalize the crowd with enough pop jams to get them warmed up for the headliner.
