The Sour Notes, Hidden Ritual, and Kay Odyssey @ Hotel Vegas

July 29th, 2016 was a night for psychedelic lights, betrayed romance and drowning sound waves.



It’s been a couple of years since I have seen The Sour Notes. The last time was at a 2014 or 15 SXSW show. Festivals all seem to blend together after a while, with too many bands and not enough memory. It was cool to catch them at Hotel Vegas and like always, their performance was captivating. This band needs to be included in your repertoire of live bands.

One of my personal favorites, Hidden Ritual, never ceases to amaze me. The first time I heard of Hidden Ritual was off of a compilation on Bandcamp called Lo-Fi Compilation 2 from Valencia, Spain. I must have played that track for 3 days straight! Without knowing that they were from Austin, I met Jaime, and Ryan of Hidden Ritual at a backyard hangout at my friend Oliver’s (Horse Plus Donkey) house.  Hidden Ritual’s psych rock totally bridges gaps to the experimental side of music.

Kay Odyssey is like a mix of post punk aggression mixed with a touch of broken hearted fuck you’s. Kristina Boswell’s performance is mesmerizing along with the driving rhythms of Kelsey Wickliffe (bass) and Vajaja Valejo (drums) driving the heavy emotions. It is always cool to catch the one and only Liz Burrito on guitar, that girl just spills out toughness.

Flyin’ Lion and Nomad City @ Sidewinder

On June 21, 2016 Flyin’ Lion and Nomad City kicked it hard at Sidewinder.


Flyin’ Lion is a two piece ensemble that produce large sounds that can kick your head in. Brian Porter (guitar and vocals)  and Sarah Bartko (drums) deliver that raw sounding emotion that keep your inner anxiety from exploding.

Magna Carda and Tele Novella@ Solstice Fest 2016

Solstice Fest 2016 is a giant party held at Pan Am park and at various venues in Austin, TX. This year I caught a couple of awesome acts, Magna Carda at The Empire Control room, and Tele Novella at The Sahara Lounge.




Magna Carda is a Hip-Hop/Rap group with a ton of energy and super talented musicians that include complex guitar riffs, bumpin beats and lyrics that will blow your mind. Check out the video for proof of awesomeness!

I have been wanting to catch Tele Novella especially since I am a big fan of Natalie Ribbon’s (also member of Agent Ribbons) dreamy voice and finally caught their Psych-Indie-Pop sound at The Sahara Lounge.  And yes it made my dreams come and put a perfect end to my evening!

Those Poor Serfs @ Sekrit Theatre

To celebrate the EP release of the soulful-folk-bluesy band, Those Poor Serfs, Sound Dessert (Gillian Driscoll) put together a very intimate show at the very secret and beautiful, Sekrit Theatre. I felt super VIP to be a part of this unique performance since it was an unplugged version of The Poor Serfs set. The band put on such an awesome performance it has stayed embedded in my head to this day.

Those Poor Serfs hail from Austin, TX whose music has revived my soul. Their Facebook bio description is spot on and summarizes their musical style as,”Alt-Americana. Moonshine-soaked mandolin, homemade harmonies, and powerhouse vocals with a sweet twang-timbre.”
