Show Of The Week

June 14, 2017


There are a lot of things happening this week – Solstice Festival, a slew of local album releases parties (Quin Galavis, Night Drive, Matthew Logan Vasquez) and something called Fasten Fest (with Beach Fossils!).  When I scan all the listings though, one show in particular sticks out, and it’s Eternal Summers with local faves Tres Oui and Lola Tried on the inside stage at the Mohawk this Saturday.  All three bands are fantastic, and they’ll sound stellar in that small room.  You should drop in and soak up a slew of great pop tunes.  Tix are $10.

PS – Rain and other unfortunate circumstances have bumped some of the recent shows I’ve booked for 93.7 KLBJ’s Sunset Concert Series, but I feel good that this week’s gig is going to happen.  So, come on out to Ernie’s on the Lake this Sunday for A. Sinclair, Summer Salt and Lowin.  Music starts at 5pm.  FREE!

Show Of The Week

March 8, 2017


SXSW is here!  I don’t usually do any sort of party talk here at SOTO, but I have a bash this Sunday and I want you to be there!  Once again it’s Austin Town Hall vs Side One Track One, and it’s happening at Hotel Vegas and Volstead.  Last year we had a pretty healthy lineup, but for 2017 we wrangled in a whopping 30 bands (29 from Austin, 1 from France).  It’s FREE and there’s no RSVP required.  Come at 2pm, stay to 2am.  Down below you’ll find the lineup and music for each band!  Enjoy.

PS – No bonus recommendations today.  Also, just so you know, the site will largely be in hibernation mode all next week. Film reviews will still be a go, but don’t expect much else otherwise until the festival is a wrap.

The Digital Wild
