When we got a call from our friends in LA outfit, Criminal Hygiene, we jumped at the champ to help them organize a show. We got a couple of our favorite local acts, Pharaohs and Big Bill to join in on the bill, thus cementing a great rock n’ roll party that everyone would enjoy. Read on for a few short words and photos by B. Gray.

Clearly Grape St. is a band that we have close ties to here at ATH so you also know that we’ll be supporting them in the future as they grow to new found fame in Austin. Wednesday the guys have a show going down at Holy Mountain put together by the fine folks at college radio station KVRX. Making this a a great local lineup are Austin bands Pharoahs and Ghetto Ghouls. You know we’re going to be there and we better see you in attendance as well supporting our great local artists.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/A-Date-With-You.mp3]

Turkey has come and gone. After the joys of fambly and the crushing defeat at the hands of the Frogs from Ft. Worth, Friday night was bound to be better with a four band show at 29th St. Ballroom. The Pharmacy was in town and we had locals The Bad Lovers, Pharaohs, and Foreign Mothers to surround them in Keeping Austin Weird.
The locals were pegged in the corner of the bar stage while headliners took it to the big room for beer throwing, bass hanging, big jams and really drunk dude being happy (and then taking a nap).
Read on for a few more thoughts and plenty of pics.

Those of you still in town for the holidays are going to be lucky to catch one of the hottest up and coming acts in the indie scene, The Pharmacy. They’re coming into town to support the release this week of their record, Stoned & Alone. And, as if it wasn’t enough to catch their hook-y rock n’ roll, you also get some other great acts opening from our great local scene, like The Bad Lovers, Pharaohs, and Foreign Mothers. If you’re in town, and you need to get away from your family for a little bit, this is the perfect excuse to slip away and rock it out.
