Even though this is kind of a low key week for shows in Austin (SXSW is clearly looming), there’s still a lot that you could get out and see.  As always, if you’re going to pick just one show to attend, go with my top choice, which is Roses, Shivery Shakes, Rose Selavy and Typical Girls at Barracuda tomorrow night.  That’s four quality indie pop bands for … well, I don’t know how much because I can’t find it listed anywhere.  Regardless, I’m sure it won’t be expensive, and like I said, all four bands are good.  Be there.

BONUS Show Recommendations:

Thursday:

My BFF’s birthday is this Saturday, so I won’t be doing anything but drinking and yelling with her and others, but if I were able to go somewhere, I’d head to the Mohawk for an all local, all lady-fronted night of music.  Heartless Bastards, a longtime favorite of mine who earlier this year put out a solid album by the name of Restless Ones, are set to headline the show.  On the opener side of things, it’s Emily Wolfe, who is responsible for one of my favorite songs out of Austin this year – Cigarette Burns – and the lovely Jess Williamson, who is one of the best folk artists in town.  As I like to say, it’s a can’t-miss kind of gig.  Go in my place!

Get tix here.  Doors at 8pm.

More shows for you to possibly indulge in …

Tonight:
Growl, Winter, Que Pasa?, Lolita Lynn at Hotel Vegas

Tomorrow:
Flesh Lights, Sweet Talk, Slow at The Sidewinder
Lomelda, Cowboy Crisis, Pageantry, Battle Bend at Cheer Up Charlies

Yeah yeah yeah, Fun Fun Fun just wrapped and I get that you’re more than happy to sit on your couch and watch TV, but you have to get back out there.  More specifically, you need to get back out there tonight.  Even more specifically, you have to go to the Mohawk, as both the outside and inside stage are loaded with rad acts.

Outside you’ll find Youth Lagoon and Moon King.  The former’s latest album, Savage Hills Ballroom, is one of my favorite releases of the year, and I’m really looking forward to hearing songs off it live.  Openers Moon King are also currently working a new album, Secret Life, and I think their crisp, pop sound should make them worth showing up early for.

Once Youth Lagoon and Moon King are done outside, you’ll be able to head inside for a loud, fun time with Shopping and locals Feral Future and Xetas.

That’s five bands for $18.  Talk about a deal!  Do it.

Doors are at 6:30pm for the outside stage.

By the way, if you want, you can only buy a ticket for the inside show.  That’ll run you $12.  Doors are at 9pm.

More recommended shows!

Thursday:
- Keep Shelly in Athens, Babes at Empire Control Room
- Ghetto Ghouls, US Weekly, Phantom Head, New Berlin at Hotel Vegas
- Blue Healer at The Sidewinder
- Ruby Fray, Guts Club, Devin James Fry, Real Live Tigers at Cheer Up Charlies

There’s plenty of shows worth paying to get into this week (see below for that list), but there’s no real reason to get all caught up in that when you can see local wonders Bop English and Good Field for FREE at ABGB on Friday.  Bang.

If you don’t already know, Bop English is James Petralli (of White Denim), and his debut LP, Constant Bop, is one of my favorite releases of the year.  Good Field also recently put out a super solid album titled Future Me.  So, that’s two high quality bands playing all sorts of fresh material.  Be there.  Starts at 9pm.

ACL is one again set to reign supreme this weekend, but if you need something smaller, there’s still plenty of shows going down outside of the fest that will surely be great.  I’m all about two album release parties that are happening – Grape St. at Hotel Vegas on Friday, Sweet Talk at the same venue the following night – but mostly I have my eyes on The Sword at the Mohawk on Saturday.  I love them to death, but if I’m honest, their new album, High Country, has yet to fully grow on me, and I’m super curious to see if the songs play better live.  Hopefully so!

Kadavar and All Them Witches will open the show.  Tickets are $25.  Snatch some up here.

CONTEST: If you’d like to win a pair of guest list spots for the show, just leave a comment, send me an email or yell at me – @SideOneTrackOne – on Twitter.  I’ll pick a winner on Friday.

More shows for you!

Tonight:
- Mother Falcon at Empire Control Room
- Shakey Graves, The London Souls at Stubb’s

Thursday:

The good folks at Do512 have gone and built a crafty app for themselves, and this Saturday they’ll be celebrating the release of it at Empire Control Room & Garage with White Denim, Christian Bland & The Revelators, Gloves Collective and Yelo.  You have to be there.  Not only is the app good and totally worth supporting, but my favs White Denim are playing!  They’ve slowed things down due to members of the band being involved in other music-related gigs (Bop English, Leon Bridges), so it’s essentially a rare performance.  Don’t miss out.  RSVP for the show by downloading Do512′s new app.

CONTEST: If you prefer a more “guaranteed entry” kind of thing, you can enter to win a pair of fancy guest list spots through SOTO by sending an email HERE.  I’ll pick a winner Friday morning.

And now, more good shows!

I should be totally selfish this week and only tell you to come to the show I’m DJ’ing (it’s Thursday at Cheer Up Charlie’s for The Harms’ vinyl release show) or the next Red Bull Sound Select showcase I helped assemble (it’s Saturday at Sidewinder with The Black Lips), but for the sake of not making everything about me, I want all of you to focus on seeing Titus Andronicus, Spider Bags and Baked at Sidewinder on Sunday.  Titus’ latest album, The Most Lamentable Tragedy, is a gem, and their raucous live show will make it easy to ignore the fact that you have to get up and go to work on Monday.  Plus, Spider Bags are really rad.  See you there!

BY THE WAY, you can enter to win a pair of guest list spots for the show on Sunday simply by sending me an email HERE with TITUS in the subject line.

More recommended shows for your eyes and ears.

Saturday is mega-packed when it comes to quality shows (see below), and I have no idea which one you should attend.  Maybe just run between all of them throughout the night?  I don’t know.  Also, I won’t be in town and will be missing all of it, so I’m admittedly pretending that none of it is actually happening.

Now about Friday, I expect to see you all at Holy Mountain for The Tontons, Fat Tony and Wrestlers.  The lineup is diverse – rock, rap and dance – and each of the acts easily rank as some of Houston’s best.  Not to mention it’s September, which means that we nearing the end of Holy Mountain’s existence.  Yikes!  So come out, indulge in an all-Houston jam session, hug the Holy Mountain staff and let’s have some fun.

Tix are $10 if buy them early, $13 at the door.  OR, if you want, you can WIN guest list spots through SOTO.  Just shoot an email HERE with HOUSTON in the subject line.  I’ll pick a winner on Friday!

Full Disclosure – I’m also excited for Friday’s show because I’ve worked with all of the acts through my gig at Red Bull Sound Select.  It’ll definitely be rad to have them in one place so that I can high five the hell out of them.

More good shows!

Thursday:
- The Hood Internet, Neiliyo, Car Stereo (Wars) at Holy Mountain
- Numerators, Ghetto Ghouls, Que Pasa?, Y’all, New Berlin at Hotel Vegas
