One of Austin’s finest blues rock bands The Happen-Ins have another local show planned at Scoot Inn for Friday night.  Fellow local rockers Scorpion Child will share the stage for the night.  The venue site also has “guests” as listed for the bill, so who know what else is in store!?  Both of these bands can seriously bring it live.

The Cult @ Stubbs (9/5)

The.Cult-band-1989

Date 9/5/09
Location Stubbs
Doors 7pm
Tickets $28 From Front Gate

I was just a wee youngling when British glam rockers The Cult got their start, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate some throw back 80s rock.  So if you’re into that sort of thing, make your way to Stubbs on Saturday night for the experience.  Once the headlining set wraps up, head indoors for a free show (if you keep your Cult ticket) by local Austin boys Scorpion Child.  That picture alone should make you want to check this one out.

So So Glos @ Emo’s (1/13)

If you aren’t heading to Mohawk for The Donkeys show, The So So Glos are another good option for some Tuesday evening fun at Emo’s.  The band is yet another up and coming Brooklyn based outfit who are gaining some notoriety outside of New York.  They’ll be playing along with Austin’s own Scorpion Child with doors opening at 8pm.  Best news of all, the whole thing is free!
