The Weekend Starts Tonight!

The weekend starts tonight if you're awesome and you are so let's go out! We Are Scientists return to Austin this evening and they're playing one of my favorite rooms, Red 7 inside. Tickets are still available at the moment but I expect it will sell-out at the door or sooner. Doors for tonight's show are at 9pm and Paws is opening so be sure to arrive early.

If you're a serious locavore and you want to partake in Austin music, then I recommend you head east to catch Big Bill at Hotel Vegas. Their Bandcamp tags tell you more about Big Bill then I ever could: "atx rock alternative billwave garage indie new wave punk surf punk Austin". The only tag they really need is "Billwave". Arrive early (10ish) to catch sets from Basketball Shorts and Barf Bag.

Perhaps you want to keep things local but you'd prefer something a little more hip-hip/soul/R&B flavored? Well, you're in luck because Riders Against the Storm (RAS) perform at Sahara Lounge this evening. Austin's music scene is more than just a bunch of ugly dudes with guitars throwing microphones...allegedly.
