Show Of The Week

October 5, 2016

0 Comments

Even if you’re set on seeing the great Kendrick Lamar at ACL: Volume 2 this Saturday, you should consider heading to Sidewinder at some point for Bill Ball 2.  The massive show is set to feature Big Bill (of course, it’s their party), Basketball Shorts, Deep Time, Xetas, Mom Jeans, Que Pasa?, US Weekly, Sherman’s March, Zest of Yore, Masculine Pain, MeanGirls, Plutonium Farmers, Body Pressure and Catalina La O.  That’s 14 good bands for $15 solid bucks (or $10, if you buy tix before Saturday).  Get in on that deal, folks.

By the way, on Saturday I’ll be working with Red Bull Sound Select at Empire Control Room & Garage.  That one has Tory Lanez, Mick Jenkins and Smino, and it’s just $3 if you RSVP.  Come join if Kendrick doesn’t all the way scratch your hip hop itch.

Show Of The Week

There are a lot of good shows happening this week (see below for extra recs), but I’m most excited for the Slack Capital release party that’s happening at Barracuda on Friday.  The 20-track effort just came out via Austin Town Hall Records, and it’s one of the better all-Austin comps to come along in a good while.  $8 will get you into the show, which features David Liebe Hart, Big Bill, Annabelle Chairlegs, Basketball Shorts, Que Pasa, Sailor Poon, Pollen RX, Pataphysics, Tough Age and Critical Dad, and you’ll receive a copy of Slack Capital on CD.  Oh, and just so you know, all proceeds are set to go to Anthropos Arts, a local non-profit organization which provides music lessons and musical instruments to at-risk youth.  That’s can’t-miss stuff, friends.
