Austin is a punk haven for artists in all places, but where else but to start at the Mohawk, one of Austin’s premiere venues that has been host to a myriad of punk artists over the years. Luckily, as Red River faces a sharp decline in venues, the Mohawk has stood against the rising tides of rent and red tape. I have seen many shows here, and tonight’s show was an experience that is difficult to put into words; however, seeing as it’s my job, I’m gonna do the best I can.
This week’s culmination of songs is a post-rock aural journey, dripping with psychedelic overtones and overdriven guitars from the likes of Ghostbunny‘s “Static Love” and Hunter Jones‘s “Laurel.” For those who would trade the psychedelic trip for a mosh pit, Otis the Destroyer and The Bravo hold it down with two biggest rock anthems of the playlist, “Goldfame” and “Everybody Needs a Friend.“
There are novice DJs and then there are thriving yet under-appreciated artists such as Casual T.
When anyone brings up 6th street, flashbacks to regretful nights followed by mornings of headaches are typically all that comes to mind.
However, twice a year Dirty 6th is transformed into a less chaotic, more respectable street festival. Pecan Street Festival commemorates the history of 6th street – formerly Pecan Street – as well as celebrates the diversity of art and talent that Austin has to offer.
In the spirit of collaboration, we feature four local music-inspired projects taken on by Austin creatives who also understand the culture of desk naps and coffee-turned-cold and are well worth supporting.
This week marks the final one for Austin’s most notable music venues, Holy Mountain, which has paved a reputation of being an incubator for Austin artists on the rise and hosting one of the most intimate set ups in town.
Our friend and Atlantic Records recording artist Max Frost is up and at it again with his new EP titled “INTOXICATION” to be released tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 25, 2015.
With summer coming to a close and the fall music festival season approaching, there are a number of shows that I, and the rest of us at On Vinyl, would recommend you do not miss. One of Austin’s foremost venues, The Mohawk, always brings an eclectic and diverse range of musical artists.
