Quiet Company have been staying busy this year promoting and touring with their latest album, Transgressor. They’re currently in Austin though as they are shooting a live music video for their song Seven Hells tomorrow night with The Good Music Club at The North Door. If you haven’t seen band play in a while, then this should be a fun way to catch up with them.

As for The Good Music Club, since 2012 they’ve worked to highlight some of the best and brightest from the Austin music scene. They produce high quality live videos for bands at no cost offering them exposure with the rest of the country and around the globe.  It’s a unique live music experience for both bands and fans. The tapings are open to the public, free to attend and all ages are welcome.

Doors for tomorrow are at 8pm. Moonlight Towers will kick off the evening at 9pm with their brand of hard rocking power pop. Quiet Company start at 10pm.

Local favorites Quiet Company, who are known for their energetic live shows and catchy, anthemic songs, will be releasing their fourth full length album, Transgressor, on February 24 via the Austin-based label Modern Outsider. This Saturday you can catch them celebrating at their big release party (presented by 101X Homegrown) at Empire Control Room and Garage.

So far two tracks off the album have been released – Understand The Problem and Seven Hells – and both reveal a guitar driven, dynamic sound.  They’re not afraid to turn up the volume, but they still hold onto the personal, reflective vibe that their fans love and admire.

For the release party, they’ve invited an extensive list of local bands: Wild AdriaticO ConquerorEast Cameron FolkcoreThe Digital Wild and Megafauna. $10 Advance tickets are on sale now; it’ll be $15 at the door. If you can’t make it this weekend, you can catch them at a Waterloo Records in-store performance this upcoming Tuesday (February 24). Also, if you’re one of the first 100 fans to pre-purchase Transgressor, you’ll receive one free ticket to the album release party!

Tinyhearts, Quiet Company (Jennifer)

April 30, 2014


Austin’s Dual Tape Deck (Randall LaRue and Andrew Ramirez) will be presenting a screening of their feature length debut, Tinyhearts, tomorrow at the Salvage Vanguard Theater. This romance/drama features music from Austin bands Wiretree and Megabig; the film title is from a Wiretree song and you can hear a Megabig song in the film trailer. At the screening there will also be live music from Wiretree along with a Q&A with the filmmakers.

Tickets are $5. You can purchase them in advance here or at the door. Event starts at 7pm and is all ages.

Be sure to get out and see Quiet Company with Growl and Harvest Thieves this Friday at Holy Mountain.  Quiet Company have been long been a personal local favorite due to their engaging live performances and catchy songwriting. Over the last year they’ve added two new members and have been working on their fourth album, Transgressor. There is currently no set album release date, but their website hints that it may arrive late summer.  You can get Transgressor updates via its Twitter page

Friday night’s special guests include one of my new local favorites, Growl. I’m a big fan of their infectious guitar pop – loud, fun, and you’ll be singing along before the end of their set.  I also highly encourage you to show up early enough to catch the alt-country sounds of Harvest Thieves.  This show is a total triple threat to kick off your weekend.
