The Kills in Austin

I know what you're thinking, an outdoor show at Stubb's in January, what were they thinking? Well, I can't speak to that specifically but I can assure that The Kills make it all better. If you've never experienced the genre-smashing fuzz and drama of a live Kills experience then you should throw on a hat and poncho and stand your ass in the rain. Look at it this way, everyone else at the show tomorrow will also be in the rain so, you can consider it a communal, bonding experience with your fellow concert patron. At the moment tickets are still available and the weather lends me to believe that the show will not sell-out. However, if you want to be on the safe side you should probably just snag some tickets right now.

I suppose if you can't handle standing in the rain to catch The Kills tonight your next best bet is to tune into KUT this afternoon where they'll be playing a live set. I can't find the exact time that the live performance starts but I was listening on my commute home yesterday and they mentioned that it would be this afternoon.

For those of you heading out to the actual show at Stubb's tonight make sure you arrive early enough to catch Jeff the Brotherhood. They have a lot of buzz building for them and have even been chosen by Mr. Jack White to represent Third Man Records with an exclusive "Blue Series" 7", as well as a live LP.

A Lull with Deleted Scenes

Hey there, come here often? You looking to party? I got you covered, well not literally, you're going to have to buy your own ticket but you should meet me at the Mohawk next Monday night. Me and all the cool kids are going to drink Lone Stars, PBR's and make fun of the other cool kids. We'll also be jamming out to A Lull. You may not recognize that name right now but in a few months when everyone is talking about them you'll be like, "Ugg, I saw them like 3 months ago and now that you like them I'm bored." You might also go for, "Remember 3 months ago when I tried to get you to go see them with me at the Mohawk?!?! Pshaw!" None of this hipster posturing will be possible if you don't make it out to the show though. It is for that reason that I'm posting this today, I want you to have a week's heads-up to get your act together.

If A Lull wasn't enough awesome music to tempt you, you can also catch Washington D.C.-area band Deleted Scenes playing the support slot. If you didn't catch them last time they played Austin then you're in luck. They put on a great live show with lots of David Lee Roth high kicks. Ok, I made that part up but they really are great musicians and they are a band to watch in 2012 according to this sentence.
