ATH made it out to Club Deville on Saturday night to check out some of the best new emerging pop bands residing in our little city. Built by Snow stole the show of course (it was their Mega CD release party) but a few other acts represented the genre well. Follow the jump to read our review of each band performing during the evening’s events.
After …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead’s rowdy set at Funx3 Fest this weekend, ATH had the opportunity to speak with band members Conrad Keely, Jason Reece & Kevin Allen. The Austin-based guys tell us why two drummers are really necessary, what we can expect from their new LP, and how music in Austin has changed over the years. Follow the jump for the full interview.
If your wallet is a little tight and you can’t afford ACL, here are two more free by RSVP shows to check out. Our first show is being put on by Antics and features a DJ set by CSS with several other special guests. This even goes down on Friday night around 10pm and you can RSVP now.
Second show also goes down on Friday with headliners Cool Kids leading the way and Voxtrot joining in on the fun. This event is being put on by Rolling Stone with doors opening at 8pm. RSVP for this one before time runs out. Both shows are rumored to have free drinks…. oh schnaps!
Tonight, Jason Chronis from Voxtrot will be playing with his band, releasing his first 7″. Apparently, the band is his project, with a lot of help from other Austin artists, including members of Bel Aire. The show starts tonight at Emos at 10 PM, and you can be one of the first to get your hands on the JC & CO 7″. Seems like a solid choice to me.
You can hear some of Jason’s music over at his Myspace Page.
