Tall Tall Trees, 11/30/2017, Central Presbyterian Church, Austin, Photos – Write-up

Photo and Write-up by James ATX Tall Tall Trees brought the people closer to god with their psych-folk banjo greatness!  Mike Savino (Banjotron 5000, vocals) and Micah Thomas (drums, vocals) made the sanctuary sing.  Apparently, there is no wrong way to play the Banjotron 5000, with Mike strumming, picking, pounding the skin with a drum stick, and bowing it like…

Wild Child, 11/17/2017, Scoot Inn, Austin, Photos – Write-up

Written by Craig McGreggor   Wild Child and Austin go hand in hand like a bowl of queso and “Why yes, I would love more queso.” One can never have enough of these local darlings who call this city their beloved home. For me, this may have been my eighth W.C. show. As a testament to…

The Front Bottoms, 11/16/2017, Emo’s, Austin, Photos – Write-up

New Jersey’s own The Front Bottoms never cease to impress.  This stop in Austin, touring their exceptional new album Going Grey, was no different.  They hit the stage hard with the new single You Used to Say (Holy Fuck) and the crowd dug it, with some displaying their excitement by crowd surfing their way to…

Calliope Musicals, 11/11/2017, Empire, Austin, Photos – Write-up

Written and photos by Craig McGreggor   Following up eccentric collective like Fragile Rock on an odd November night is a challenge.  Calliope Musicals brand of infectiously fun music and psych/trance like visuals was an easily counterpart.  It’s hard to brand these group as anything other than just great.  Not quite electronic, obviously indie, a…

MAGIC GIANT, 10/22/2017, Antone’s, Austin, Photos – Write-up

MAGIC GIANT is an unstoppable force!  Their live performance echoes the good vibes their music brings.  It is a non-stop party from the moment they hit the stage til the final applause.  The crowd screamed and happily clapped along to their singles as well as the lesser known songs in their fresh catalog. An unforgettable highlight…

Overcoats and Yoke Lore, 9/22/2017, Antone’s, Austin, Photos – Write-up

Written and photos by Bang Ho   Yoke Lore set the tone of the night as they played songs off the Goodpain EP they just released. A two man piece, Adrian Galvin’s voice was ranged from soft and emotive on songs such as Beige as he played a banjo to more uptempo songs like Goodpain with…

Possessed by Paul James, 9/29/2017, Emo’s, Austin, Photos – Write-up

Possessed by Paul James is a one man wall of punk rock bluegrass/roots/folk sound.  Konrad Wert becomes possessed when he hits the stage, full of energy, though sat in a chair for the entire performance.  Normally sitting before a few hundred people to keep the shows intimate feels, he thoroughly entertained and lifted the large Emo’s crowd.  Be sure to check out Possessed by Paul James every chance you get!
