This week, OV Recommends “Seduced By Sound.” This local Austin anthology is comprised of 100 local up-and-coming or already established Austin musicians and is produced by Weeva and curated by Carly Wolf, frontwoman of the Ghost Wolves.
It’s December and the holiday season nears. Not only do I love this month, but the excitement that captures me when I think about returning to the city that birthed me expresses itself through an infinite amount of heart-born glee which radiates through my eyes at the thought of every small December miracle.
The best miracle of all: Day for Night Festival. In its second year, the festival makes a comeback, promising an immersive landscape of music and art.

Something Wicked returns in full-force after last year’s cancellation, features local Austin artists as support.
On Thursday, Sept. 15, a congregation formed late in the evening at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in West Campus for the church’s monthly Front Porch series. They gathered to discuss the state of the music industry in Austin and the current issues at hand. Ted Gioia, a jazz specialist from Dallas who is a widely recognized author and music researcher, led the talk with an impactful keynote on the state of the music industry at a global level and later hosted a panel of various stakeholders within the local Austin music industry. He discussed his stance of the music industry being in a state of “crisis,” an echo of Mayor Steve Adler’s rhetoric, urgently challenging the audience to seek ways to bring business to the city and build technology with the purpose of uplifting and supporting music.
From time to time, there comes a band that goes unmatched in their realm of music. When such a group comes parading into Austin, they’re worth a mention. Heavyweight punk-kings the Melvins return to Austin next weekend to play the Sidewinder stage with Helms Alee, a fellow rock band from the Washington area.
While the sun was unforgiving and pierced through even the thickest clouds, Float Fest 2016 saw hundreds of patrons from San Marcos and surrounding areas scurry onto one of many of Don’s Fish Camp’s dusty shuttles to be escorted to the starting point of the 2-hour journey down San Marcos river. Upon their return, festival goers had the opportunity to enter the gates and be greeted by the live sounds of many Austin artists, free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and a whole carnival setup that included a murderously fast ferris wheel (or maybe I’m afraid of heights, whatever).
