Show Pics: Free Week 2016 Pt. 1

Night DriveMy turn for giving Free Week a little love.

Night one with camera was a solid lineup at The Mohawk to celebrate our friend’s birthday. Pooneh is kind of a big deal in music photography and a damn nice person to boot. I was at the show and bought her a beer when she turned twenty-one five long years ago. Heh. But here we were with an excuse as good as any to have a solid lineup of bands with a huge amount of variation in genres. Featured and immortalized by the camera’s Shivery Shakes, Big Bill, Unknown Relatives, Milezo and Night Drive.

We persevered against the drizzly evening for a crisp night. Click through, please.

Show Pics: Crocodiles @ Holy Mountain (5/6)

We are still catching up on unfinished business from last week. Psych Fest Levitation took over all things on Friday and I was stuck in prep mode before being able to post these pics from a lovely little show at Holy Mountain last week. We ran the Stephin Merritt shots from that night, Crocodiles is next up as we finish out our double-header night with jams. Along for the ride, we had Unknown Relatives and Que Pasa.

Show Preview: Crocodiles @ Holy Mountain (5.6)

CrocodilesPromo2

Date 05.06
Location Holy Mountain
Doors 8pm
Tickets 10 $ Here

Wednesday night ’round these parts has got you set out to make a tough decision as to how to spend your evening. Nathan already gave you a preview of the Stephen Merritt show that’s bound to be great, but I figured I’d throw a wrench in things and tell you about another show that’s sure to be a jangly guitar-rock filled good time. Crocodiles, who are on the verge of releasing their new LP, Boys are hitting Holy Mountain to give us some of the treats off that upcoming record. Having already spent some time with those new tracks, I can tell you it’ll be a smash. They’ll be joined by lovely locals ¿Qué Pasa? and Unknown Relatives which should make for a night brimming with psychedelic and hazy rock and roll. For ten dollars, you really can’t miss this.

Show Preview: The Wolf @ 29th Street Ballroom (4/16)

Date Monday, April 16th
Location 29th Street Ballroom
Doors 10:00 pm
Tickets Cheap

If you are able to recover from the ridiculous amount of great shows in town last week, then you should make it out to 29th Street Ballroom this Monday night.  One of Austin’s rising acts is The Wolf, and you’re going to absolutely fall in love with this band the moment you hear them.  They’ve got elements of surf, psych and all things in between–you can’t get better than that.  Plus, you can also catch one of our favorite acts, Shivery Shakes opening the evening.  Also on the excellent bill are Sexploits and Unknown Relatives.  Perfect way to spend a Monday evening!
