Spring tours are in full effect, which means a truly intimidating amount of nearly constant concert announcements… luckily, you have us to steer you towards some of the more choice options.
Tonight, you should definitely check out Dengue Fever at the Mohawk. We first caught them during Fun Fun Fun Fest, when their Cambodian-influenced indie rocked our faces off.
Ouch. What is it with Tuesday nights in Austin lately? It’s almost like they are the new Thursday, with the amount of stiff competition between awesome bands playing one night. For this Tuesday, you have a choice between Cake at Stubbs and Mates of State at La Zona Rosa. Cake is sold out, but enterprising souls can find ways to get hold of a ticket or two…
The Black and White Years are playing a show indoors at Stubbs, if you haven’t heard. It’s likely to sell out, so you may wanna buy tix now.
Death Cab for Cutie is playing the Austin Music Hall with Matt Costa and Ra Ra Riot. Brothers & Sisters are doing their feel-good brand of folk-y alt-country at Scoot Inn with JC & Co (Jason from Belaire and Voxtrot) and others. T-Bird & the Breaks (pic above) are throwing down neo-soul dance-friendy funkiness at Emo’s.
The Red River Revolution II! The first one was late last fall, and it was already very chilly. With warmer weather upon us, the bonfire won’t be as essential as it was in the past, but will likely play a crucial role nevertheless in marshmallow-roasting endeavors. Featuring The Story Of, Sunset, Diagonals, and more, including DJ sets from members of the Black & White Years.
Also going down: Ume at La Zona Rosa. They’ve been making major waves with their post-punk grunge-y indie, along with lead singer Lauren’s powerhouse vocal stylings.
