8/28 Thunderheist, LAX & Vicious @ Emo’s

ThunderheistMany of you might have got caught in the rain this past Thursday evening, but Mother Nature decided to take a breather by the time Vicious, L.A.X., and Canadian DJ duo Thunderheist hit the stage. We all know that Emo’s (outdoors) can often feel like a sweltering sauna, but the humidity didn’t stop concertgoers from making good use of their dancing shoes. Luckily, there was room to breathe so you never felt overcome with claustrophobia as you milled around the venue avoiding puddles. Follow the jump to hear our thoughts.

Peaches @ Emos (6/11)

peaches300Sex crazed pop musician Peaches is making a stop at Emo’s in Austin on Thursday night.  Tour support Drums of Death should combine nicely with the headliners to make this a night of crazy drunken dancing and singing.  Tickets are still available to purchase, but I wouldn’t plan on buying one at the door.  Music starts at 10pm.  Don’t miss this one!

New Peaches Tune

peaches300Looks like Peaches has gone dance hall crazy.  Not to say the earlier music wasn’t dancey, but this new single sounds like it’s made for the dance floor. “Talk to Me” will appear on upcoming album I Feel Cream due out May 5th.  It’s by far the cleanest single (lyrics wise) I’ve ever heard from the band.

PUSA @ Stubbs (10/8)

One of the great pop/rock bands to make it out of the 90s, The Presidents of the United States of America, will be making an appearance at Stubbs Wednesday evening. Lucky for you, local Austin act The Black and White Years will be opening for the veteran band. Doors for the event are set to open at 7 with The Black and White Years starting around 8. Get them tickets now! We also finally have a reason to post “Peaches” on our site. YES!
