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.

3 x 3 Show Reminder @ Mohawk — Tonight

3for3AugustI get it. Mondays are always a struggle. But, far too often we give up, thinking we just gotta hold on until the weekend.  Well, I’m going to rage against the dying of the week, and remind you to join me and everyone else for the first 3×3 Series. Three bands, three bucks. It won’t even go too late, so you can get home and still get at least 6-7 hours of sleep…or more. Twin Bitches go on at 9, Rain Collectors at 10 and Que Pasa at 11. It’s three bucks, a dollar a band. I’d love to see you at Mohawk tonight.


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!

 

Show Pics: Twin Bitches @ The Mohawk (4/30)

We had a fun night of having fun at The Mohawk. While reports of Kaiser Chiefs’ performance at Stubb’s trickled in with some vocal issues attached, Nathan, Nicole and I were enjoying local faves Slow and Jonly Bonly with a first time look at Twin Bitches. No issues here, other than wanting a few more people to join us. It was a full tilt batch of jams featuring broken guitar strings, pedal stomps, bass face and neck strains.

ATX Spotlight: Twin Bitches Do It Right

11174497_942951285737062_3480207812902951185_oBeen helping a friend put together a show this week over at Mohawk on Thursday night, and in doing so, I encountered a new band, Twin Bitches that’s really exciting.  Based on their two singles, the band has sort of that post-punk Constantines feeling to them, using jagged guitar chops to push forth the lyrics, which come across somewhere between a throaty growl and a gentle croon.  Musically, you can see similarities to other indie acts, but combined, it sounds like something wholly different. They’ll be playing with two of our favorite local acts, SLOW and Jonly Bonly…so come out, grab a drink, jam out and enjoy some of the finer rock n’ roll tunes in town. Doors are at 9, but you can always come hang out early.
