Austin Psych Fest Announces Line-Up

Fresh off a rad year at Levitation, those good folks announce the line-up of their Spring edition Austin Psych Fest. After being gone for a bit, it’s been a great return to the Austin music schedule, with this year’s event taking place over the weekend of April 26 – 28! Line-up highlights include heavy hitters like Courtney Barnett, Dehd, Alvvays and Kurt Vile, but you know they always work hard to develop and curate, so expect some surprises as we draw nearer the date. You can grab tickets tomorrow via PreSale, and tickets go out to the public on Friday. Check HERE to get yours! The whole event will take place at the Far Out Lounge, home of $13 Miller Lite Drafts.

About Last Night: Levitation Night Two (10/27)

While Nathan was solo on Thursday, the ATH crew rolled deep on Friday night with a full crew hitting almost every venue offered by Levitation Festival. While the rain dampened spirits a bit to start the evening, things ramped up once the skies cleared and we took full advantage of the full variety of musical styles on the lineup. We covered a ton of ground and saw a plethora of bands, all which you can read about after the jump.

About Last Night: Levitation Night One (10.26)

I left my day job early to go get in on the action at Levitation 2023, heading out to the Far Out Lounge to catch a handful of great guitar acts from the 90s take the stage; it was there where I was greeted with a reminder of what a nightmare festival pricing can be. Let’s be real, a $13 Miller Lite draft? $20 parking when there are no other options in proximity? I mean, I get overhead, and a convenience fee, but for real, fuck that. Shitty decision making out there, and kind of soured me in the setting. Don’t even get me started on one food option, and it being outside the venue.

Video Age Share Is It Really Over (Levitation Artist)

Next week is Levitation; it’s also the week of Video Age‘s new LP hitting the streets! Why would that matter? Well, you actually get both together, at the band are part of the festival’s line-up! But, let’s put that aside for the moment, and listen to the group’s latest single on Away From the Castle. This one’s a true slow burner, crafting nostalgic pop vibes through the first minute and a half, then dropping in a sick beat to get a little bounce beneath your feet. They flesh the track out too, letting some little vocal samples and washes of electronics kind of crest in the middle of the tune, all of it reminding me of thoughtful pop like Radio Dept. or Red Sleeping Beauty. If, like me, you’re coming to the festival next weekend, be sure you’ve got the band on your radar, and if not, grab the new LP from Winspear.
