Show Of The Week

November 11, 2015

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!

Thee Oh Sees, Spray Paint, Future Death at Hotel Vegas

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.

Tonight:
- Diet Cig, Pleasure Venom at the Mohawk

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

Friday:
- Sweet Spirit, Plastic Pinks, Street Dads at Hotel Vegas
- The Heavenly States at Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.

Because it’s a holiday weekend there’s a good chance that things will be a bit chaotic downtown.  If that doesn’t sound particularly inviting to you, then here’s a great alternative plan – head to ABGB (Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.) on Saturday to see the trash poet himself John Wesley Coleman III, SOTO-favs The Sour Notes and the buzzy indie pop act Rose Selavy.  It’s FREE, and there’s quality food and beer to be had (this part isn’t free, but you’ll be fine).  Have a blast.

There are some big, attractive shows set for this week – 101X Homegrown Live tomorrow night, Belle And Sebastian and Mos Def on Friday, the Lonestar Beer Texas Heritage Festival on Saturday – but my main recommendation is that you focus on heading to Hotel Vegas on Saturday night.  There are five bands – FIVE! – that will be there rocking and sweating the night away.  A Giant Dog, Flesh Lights and Hundred Visions are all loud and fun and have been mentioned here at SOTO a ton of times, Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes are a buzzy punk act that should have been on SOTO by now, and Negative Scanner (the only non-Austin act on the bill) are a band that SOTO’s own Noah Sanders recently fell in love with. Sounds like a can’t miss night to me.  Go and indulge.

:A Giant Dog – All I Wanted:
:Negative Scanner – Would You Rather:
:Flesh Lights – Just About Due:
:Hundred Visions – You’re Gonna Cut Me Loose:
:Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes – Hot Shoes:

Technically I’m super highlighting two shows in this week’s column, but they’re both on the same night and they’re both FREE, which means I can consider them to be one rad experience.  So, tomorrow evening, I recommend that you start at Shady Grove with The Suffers, who will be playing KGSR’s Unplugged at the Grove.  They go on a 8pm!  If you like soul music, you shouldn’t miss them.  Once they’re done, my recommendation is that you then make the jump to Holy Mountain.  Starting at 9pm, I’ll be there playing 90s rock tunes before and around a set that will feature a bunch of rad locals performing Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream from front to back.  That’s a totally fun and FREE Thursday night.  Join me for all of it.

Other shows you could go to this week!

Thursday:
- Blue Healer, Say Girl Say, Slomo Drags at Lamberts

Friday:
- The Velvet Teen, Young Tongue, Bright Like The Sun at Holy Mountain
- Rocky Votolato, Dave Hause, Chris Farren at Red 7

Saturday:
- A. Sinclair, John Wesley Coleman III at Radio Coffee & Beer

For this week’s prime show recommendation I’m keeping it local with The Eastern Sea, Little Radar and Scenery at Red 7 this Friday.  When I saw The Eastern Sea last month they played quite a few new songs, and all of them were pretty great.  You should get some of that in your life.  Also, I’m pretty sure there will be plenty of new tunes to be had from both Little Radar and Scenery, and I’m guessing it will do you good to get in on that as well.  All local, all new!  Have fun.

Here are some other shows worth attending this week.

ThursdayCreepoid, Marriages, Ringo Deathstarr at Red 7

Gorilla vs Bear 5 (with Jamie XX, Lower Dens, Bop English, Tei Shi, Yumi Zouma, Prince Innocence) looks like an amazing time, but it’s sold out.  You can’t go.  So, instead I think your goal this week should be joining me at Empire Control Room on Friday for the Red Bull Sound Select showcase with Jeff The Brotherhood, Novosti and Mirror Travel.  Yes, I work for RBSS and am probably being totally biased here, but I’m certain it’s going to be a rad show.  JTB are always great, Novosti have an interesting sound that I’m excited to check out live, and Mirror Travel will be putting on their first show in Austin in a good long while.  Also, I hired a magician as a host.  A magician!  Not to mention the show is in celebration of Waterloo Records’ 33 1/3 Anniversary.  This is all good stuff.  Be there.

PS – The show is $3 with an RSVP, but if you’d like to be on the guest list for it, just send me an email.  I have some extra spots I can giveaway!

Here’s a few other shows worth looking into this week.
