Earlier this year, Austin’s Real Live Tigers released Denatured via Keeled Scales; it’s the perfect Austin album, relying upon great lyricism and folk aesthetics. But, in case you haven’t really gotten to know the band or its songs, then perhaps this great new video for “Leave a Map” will encourage your listening. Not only is the video shot beautifully, but the narrative also grasps the beauty of this track too, especially in its message of leaving something behind, something positive that can serve as your mark…where others will see your trials and tribulations as accomplishments along life’s path. Enjoy the video and head over to the KS Shop and grab the record.
|Date||Thursday, March 27th|
|Location||Cheer Up Charlies|
Traveling acts are rather sparse this week, as the bands wait for us to clean the streets of SXSW, so you’re best bet is to catch one of the great local acts playing about town. My suggestion is to catch RF Shannon this Thursday evening over at Cheer Up Charlies. The show is FREE, for one, but the group is also one of the acts who everyone is expecting a big year from in Austin. They’ve just released their Hunting Songs LP on Punctum Records, which is worth your listening pleasure. They’ll be joined on the evening by King Mary and Real Live Tigers. Join me, won’t you?
