ATX Converge put on a free party about this time last year and they are getting back in the game with a $5 show at Mohawk on Saturday night. The lineup is stacked with local talent and includes Moth! Fight!, Black Cock, Cowabunga Babez, La Guerilla, White White Lights, Missions, Butcher Bear and Charlie, Capybara, and DJ Hobo D. Should be one incredible night to sample some of the best local music Austin has to offer.

The White White Lights are a band that have been receiving a whole slew of positive praise as of late from the local music blog roll. We decided it was just about time we joined in the fun and featured the band in our artist to watch feature. Not much information can be found about White White Lights, but we do know that the band has been around for a little over a year and features members of Austin bands Lomita and Monster Girl. You can also expect a debut self-titled LP from the band sometime this October coming out on local label Indierect Records. We think they sound a lot like one of our other favorite Texas bands, Eisley, mixed in with a bit more of an atmospheric touch. You can experience that sound this Wednesday at Mohawk for only $7 along with fellow locals Sleeping in the Aviary. Give ’em a chance and let us know what you think of this new Austin band.
