Twas a hot and sweaty night in Austin Texas on Saturday as we made our way over to Red 7 for a headlining show by Appleseed Cast. The bill was full of bands that reminded us all of better days when musicians actually played guitars and knew how to keep a beat. A great lineup indeed.

If you frequent this website, I really shouldn’t even have to begin telling you about my love affair with all things Appleseed Cast. Hell, I’ve likely seen the band more than any other in my history of attending live shows. Cool? With that said, you know I will be in attendance when the band headlines at Red 7 tomorrow and I’ll also likely be screaming along like a school girl to every word. The undercard of this bill is surely something you won’t want to miss either with The Life and Times, Muscle Worship, and Phantom Lakes all joining in on the fun. It’s never too late to get on this bandwagon. Be smart.

We mentioned recently that San Marcos amigos This Will Destroy You are currently working on a new album set for release later this summer. The guys are also about to kick start a massive tour and have a send off show planned for Thursday night at The Mohawk. St. Louis band The Life and Times and fellow Austinites Low Line Caller will be on hand to prep you for the headlining act. Trust me, you’ll want to see this band live before they start playing huge sold out venues in the future.
