Those of you not attending Fun Fest this year will surely enjoy some of the awesome official after parties and pre-parties going down. You can start things off Thursday night by heading to Club Deville for an awesome party headlined by non-festival band Helio Sequence. You’re also gonna get super solid and local treatment with Till Were Blue or Destroy along with some of our favorite locals in Great Nostalgic. With the whole thing being free with RSVP, I can’t see any reason why you wouldn’t be here for this. I would suggest early arrival as this will get super packed and at capacity quick I’m sure.

Lucy the Poodle magazine is putting on quite the event this Friday night at Club Deville in Austin. The night features literally tons of local artists covering the great HOF band Pink Floyd. The lineup includes Cari and Jason of Belaire, The Hi Tones, Til We’re Blue or Destroy, The Alice Rose, The Raven Tree, Blase Faire, The Clouds are Ghosts, The Noise Revival Orchestra, and Leisure Tourniquet. Whew. As if that wasn’t enough, the night will also feature a light show, tons of free stuff, and a screening of Dark Side of Oz after the last band has wrapped up. Entrance fee is only $7 and doors things start around 8pm. Should be one helluva night. More info can be had over on the do512 or on that fancy flier.

Friday night was a great evening for an outdoor show; the cool breeze of the impending rains allowed the crowd to remain cool during what would normally be considered a hot Texas night. Til We’re Blue or Destroy opened up the evening just before The Shaky Hands, which led us into the night’s main event, The Thermals. Follow the jump for full show review.
Local Austin act, Till Were Blue or Destroy, are playing a set at The Mohawk on Tuesday evening. The band will be joined in the night’s events by The Ugly Suit out of Oklahoma. Things are set to start at 10pm with tickets being sold only at the door. Preview the show with a new track from the Ugly Suit called “Chicago”.
