As we’re wrapping up the year, there’s still a few delights coming from Austin that should garner your attention. Two great pieces of music were dropped last week via Pleasure Venom and Housewarming.
Pleasure Venom continues their barrage of EPs with another excellent connection of punky rockers. Audrey Campbell is the frontwoman you’ve all been looking for, witty and powerful, stealing your soul through your speakers; it’s a good thing, I promise.
Housewarming offer up the softer side of town sharing a single from their forthcoming Sasha EP. It’s light guitar pop, for folks into other local acts like Daphne Tune or Hovvdy. The two singles they’ve shared thus far indicate a confidence in their sound that immediately puts the rest of our city on notice for great things to come.
We’ll be out and about the rest of the week to view the things during SxSW so remember to check out the twitter and our various instagram accounts.
Either you missed the big Austin Town Hall vs. Side One Track One party, or perhaps you were there and want to relive it. Check out the gallery after the break that features faces, bands, instruments, lights, beverages, scenes and moods from the day and night at Hotel Vegas. Highlights for me were Glaze, Nite, El Lago, BLXPLTN, Tres Oui, Daphne Tunes and Marmalakes. Find these bands during SxSW. You’ll be happy if you do.
Today’s the day you’ve all been waiting for, the announcement of our annual AustinTownHall vs Side One Track One SXSW party. We’re throwing down at Hotel Vegas/Volstead again, and we’ve booked a pretty solid lineup of acts. We’ve got some bands with huge buzz like Caroline Says or Why Bonnie, a handful of ATH Records artists…and we even got in a few out of town acts like Nite and El Lago. Best news of all? It’s absolutely free, so all you have to do is come on over and just enjoy yourselves…there’s something for everybody. Show kicks off at 2 PM and lasts all day and night. Plus, we love you, so you don’t even have to RSVP! Check out the event page, and plan ahead, you’ll be here all day!
