Looking at the schedule, there’s tons of great acts gracing our town this week, and Tuesday night is no exception. You’ve got a couple of great traveling shows coming through, one featuring a great local act that you should keep your eyes on. Amen Dunes comes into town with Axxa/Abraxas in tow, which is likely to be a huge success for both bands. They’re both coming in support of recent 2014 releases, with AD celebrating Love, and Axxa performing their self-titled debut; that show takes place over at the Hotel Vegas. But, don’t sleep on Streets of Laredo, who’ll be headlining a gig at the Mohawk with one of our favorites, Reservations. Looks like a great evening for us all…so be sure to partake in the good music. Here’s a tune from Axxa/Abraxas to get you into the mood.
As we head into the summer months, there’s a slew of great shows on the horizon, and one we’re particularly excited about features two of our favorites, Amen Dunes and Axxa/Abraxas. After a superb self-titled release in March for Captured Tracks, we caught up for a short little interview with Axxa/Abraxas frontman, Ben. Read on for a brief look into his world… Read more
Friday’s are for two things here in Austin: you either get weird or you get fun, or you can do both if you’re so inclined. I think the latest track to come from Axxa/Abraxas accomplishes both, thus making my day; it’s one of those tunes that stretches over several genres, ambling between psychedelia and roots rock and pop forms. Personally, I like the percussion, giving the track a little bit of a sideways stomp that really ups the energy level. It’s just one of the great tunes that comes from the band’s self-titled album, which is being released by Captured Tracks on March 4th.
