Show Preview: White Mystery @ Beerland (9/2)

Date 9/2/11
Location Beerland
Doors 9pm
Tickets Guessing under $10 @ door?

Beerland has a great show lined up for Friday night featuring Chicago garage rockers White Mystery.  Joining the bro/sis duo on stage and rounding out a solid lineup are Mouthbreathers, and 3 local bands A Giant Dog, Rayon Beach, and Maine Coons.  This should be a loud show for fans of true rock n roll.  Who’s in?  I also don’t see a door cost so feel free to leave a comment if anyone finds that info.

Show Preview: Paperhead @ Mohawk (6/20)

Date 6/20/11
Location Mohawk
Doors 9pm
Tickets $6 @ Door

One of my favorite discoveries of the year, Nashville based fuzz rockers Paperhead, are making a stop into Austin at the Mohawk tonight.  I’m willing to bet that most of you have nothing better to do on a Monday night and this is a great chance to see an up and coming band on the cheap.  Joining this promising new group on stage are local promising talent Rayon Beach.  Get out there people and discover some new tunes.

Show Preview: Shapes Have Fangs @ Ghost Room (2/10)

Date 2/10/11
Location Ghost Room
Doors 9pm
Tickets $5 @ Door

With a bit of a slow week in the music scene in Austin, it’s a perfect time to get your butt out there and check out some of that local music you’ve been meaning to see.  Thursday night is a great option for such endeavors with a headlining show at The Ghost Room by Shapes Have Fangs.  Joining the band on stage are fellow up and coming and hot locals Rayon Beach, The Daze, and Eets Feats.  Also in store is a photo booth by Birds Barbershop and a free drink for the first 100 people through the door provided courtesy of Waterloo Ice House.  Fellow sponsors and friends for the event are Republic of Austin, Knuckle Rumbler, and Red River Noise.  I highly doubt you’ve got anything better to do on a Thursday night.  Seriously.

Show Preview: Turbo Fruits @ Red 7 (12/17)

Date 12/17/10
Location Red 7
Doors 9pm
Tickets $8 @ Frontgate

As promised earlier this week, we wanted to remind you about the sweet show at Red 7 on Friday night with buzz bands Turbo Fruits and Pujol.  Also on the stage are Rayon Beach and Dikes of Holland.  It’s a cheap ticket price so I’d recommend checking these guys out before they start booking at bigger venues.  Below you can also find the new song from Turbo Fruits we posted earlier this week.

Show Preview: The Fresh & Onlys @ Emos (10/27)

Date Wednesday, October 27th
Location Emos
Doors 900p
Tickets $8 from Ticketweb

On the midweek marquis at Emos this week, you have to come out. There’s no way around it, The Fresh & Onlys are going to be playing.  They just released their new album, Play It Strange, which is surely going to be in our Top 20 of the year, and I can’t get songs like “Waterfalls” out of my head.  Recorded, there definitely is a bit of haze to their sound, but live, they’re an entirely different animal; it’s something you definitely need to see in order to understand.  Also in attendance will be Royal Baths and Rayon Beach, so two more reasons to get out to this show. The touring year is winding down, and this looks to be one of the best shows Austin has left, so don’t miss out!
