Zlam Dunk THEN Learning Secrets

It wouldn't be a Saturday night in Austin if there weren't, at least, 3 events worthy of your time, money and attention and tonight is no exception. So, yesterday I told you about the Monotonix show at Mohawk where the music will be kicking off at 9pm but before THAT goes down you should stop by Red 7. They've got a show that starts at 5pm and features Zlam Dunk. These guys are young, energetic and bring lots of melody, percussion and passion. They have been tapped by various resources, including myself, as a local act to keep an eye on in 2011. I first saw them back in the spring when they were invited, by Fang Island, to play the opening slot at their Emo's show. Fang Island liked Zlam Dunk so much they ended up asking them to play a few more shows with them outside of Austin. Like I said this show starts at 5pm so you can start your evening out at Red 7 before moving on to other festivities.

I also wanted to remind you about Learning Secrets' 7th anniversary bash happening over at ND. Now, you'll want to RSVP for that show as fast as possible in order to get the $8 entry fee. There will be a live performance by Kisses as well as a DJ set from DFA Records' artist, Tim Sweeney. Doors open at 10pm and this event will be thumping into the wee hours of the morning. If you miss the window to RSVP I recommend just paying $20 for VIP access, otherwise you'll be paying $10 to NOT be a VIP. That's your call though.
