Bishop Briggs, 5/20/2017, Mohawk, Austin, Photos – Write-up

Written and Photos by Bang Ho   Bishop Briggs showed us that electro RnB is a genre that is alive and well at the sold out entrancing show. Her powerful voice stayed in the lower registers, but effortlessly traversed the scale as the song soaringly crested and fell with the energy of her words. On a sea of her…

Written by Greg Ackerman Last Friday late 90s acts Mike Doughty (Soul Coughing) and Wheatus played Austin’s 3TEN at ACL Live. Doughty is known for his self-described “slacker jazz” while Wheatus is known for the same type of low-fi music Austin’s Daniel Johnston introduced to Central Texans during the same era. Both acts drew a large…

Kurt Vile and the Violators, 12/14/2016, ACL Live, Photos – Write-up

Indie rockers Kurt Vile and the Violators played a killer set at the KGSR’s 26th Anniversary Party. The sound was perfection in the iconic Moody Theater, home of Austin City Limits tapings. They did not disappoint as they tore through a full set for the sold out crowd. A highlight was Kurt declaring to crowd how beautiful, sexy, and hot they were before performing their 2015 hit single Pretty Pimpin. So many revelers wanted to be able to revisit this moment, as evidenced by the massive amounts of phones in the air. Never miss a chance to catch Kurt Vile and the Violators live!

Written by Phil Barton The Gypsy punks Gogol Bordello stopped into Austin and gave a much needed break from what has been a very difficult week for so many.  I can only describe them as an endurance band that sprints the entire way through their 2 hour set.  Their shows are flawless and the crowds…
