Caveman and Ra Ra Riot this Friday

It's a rainy Friday night in Austin, Texas. It's going to be sweaty out there. The roads are going to be moist. That's right, I said moist what's up now? You could throw on some band-aid-sized shorts, put on a pair of boots, grab that vintage purse with the ridiculously long leather tassel and see what's happening down on 6th. You could throw on some Juicy Couture and Uggs and make it a Red Box night. You could do a Suburban Pub Crawl: Cheddar Bay biscuits and drinks with umbrellas at Red Lobster, breadsticks/cheesecake and Wine at Olive Garden, Blooming Onions and beers at Outback then finish things off at Club Applebees obviously. Those are pretty much the only things a person in Austin could possibly do tonight. You decide.

Oh wait, you guys, I just thought of a couple more things you could do.

Bloggy Favs, Caveman return to Austin in support of their brilliant, self-titled, sophmore LP. That news in and of itself is enough to inspire the purchase of tickets (at the door) for this show at Emo's. But there's more to it than that.

You see, the reason Caveman are back in Austin tonight is to support Ra Ra Riot! I'm not saying it's their fault BUT I feel like the last time Ra Ra Riot played Austin, it also rained. This show is inside, there is on-site parking and it's NOT DOWNTOWN ON A FRIDAY NIGHT. Just throwing that out there.

If you're a musical loca-vore then you need to be at Red 7 to bid Markov adieu. Yes, you read that correctly tonight's appearance on Red 7's inside stage is the band's last scheduled appearance as Markov. Find out what makes Markov Austin's best post-rock band. I can use present tense until their set is over tonight! Oh, and did I mention that Markov's final show is FREE?!?! Because it is.

There's probably some other stuff you could do tonight but I don't want to hear about it.
