Just a block short from the packed bars and long lines of dirty Sixth Street, lies a cozy, ambient venue: Swan Dive. On Sept. 10, 2015, local Austin artist management and event promotion company, Glitter Tribe, hosted a fantastic show stacked with local artists. The night opened with Waking Fable, a group effortlessly delivering sultry and soulfully rich sounds with an acoustic and subtle pop vibe.
Nestled right in between the concrete jungle of downtown Austin and West Campus, Spider House Cafe and Ballroom has become a haven for art and creation for all of the eager ATX artists.
Those of you not in the know, FUN FUN FUN Fest has been Austin’s premiere alternative comedy, media, and music fest for the last decade. Hosting great comics like Sarah Silverman, Extreme Sports gods like Matt Hoffman, and a massive array of musicians: everybody from MGMT to Slayer, Black Flag and Flying Lotus have graced the FFF Fest stage. This year, they’re really looking to outdo themselves. Transmission Events, the events team that gathers all these phenomenal artists, have managed to reign in some big names in music, and I’m here to fill you in on the details.
The wait is over, and the time has finally come. After months of rigorous planning, preparation, deep-breathing exercises and praying to all of our respective deities to forgive us for our impending debauchery, the launching of On Vinyl Music is finally here. I myself can think of no other way to kick off this awesome start up than to hop on a boat with my best friends, 4 great bands, and a millennium’s worth of beer and liquor.
