Interview with Meanswell by Mike Cosmic

Meanswell is a four piece Indie-rock band from Austin, Texas who’s members have been collaborating for many years. They evolved from a band called The Gents, a folk-rock, harmony driven band, to  Meanswell a hard rock n’ roll band which is apparent on their two most recent  Bandcamp releases “Meanswell” and “Open Season”.  I had the opportunity to interview Kevin Manship (Guitar and Vocals)  and we talked about the bands new music,  and the bands future.

Beams, Abstract Class @ Cheer Up Charlie’s

Talk about late reviews and postings, but here is a blast of awesome shows that you might have missed!  

February 25, 2017 

 

Beams (Toronto, ON)     .     Facebook 

All the way from Toronto, we have the seven piece band, Beams, with duo vocals and a hard jamming tunes makes for a great performance. Beams is a very cool to watch live with all the sounds colliding uniformly! 

 

 

 

Abstract Class    .     Facebook

This performance was Abstract Class’s (formerly known as Mirrorman) first show and what better place to have a great show but other than Cheer Up Charlie’s. Abstract Class sound sends  a hypnotizing emotions through the airwaves which compliment the trios vibes. 

Interview with The Division Men by Mike Cosmic

The Division Men are a husband and wife duo, Caroline and Jesus Portillo, whose musical experiences bring a unique originality to their art form, not only musically but visually as well. A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to interview The Division Men while putting their finishing touches on their new album due out in early 2018.  Although the tour was interrupted by life’s unforeseen circumstances, plans for touring to promote their new album will continue in the spring of 2018.

Check out the video interview with The Division Men as we talk about their music, collaborations, inspirations and tour.

The Coathangers – Unplugged @ Collide

The Coathangers – Unplugged 

The Coathangers are a punk based trio out of Atlanta, GA.  In support of their follow up album Nose Bleed Weekend they played at Barracuda to a packed house on February 12th which I unfortunately missed. But all turned out for the better on February 11th and they played an unplugged set at Collide. Although the crowd was not as crazy as the night before, I got to hangout and talk to these awesome ladies! I could hardly contain my excitement, when I arrived at Collide. I approached them and asked them about their show the previous night and how they were feeling with such a small amount of sleep. They responded with;  The Austin show had great response from the audience and they loved that their were a lot of girls up in front. Good job Austin! They also said that they are use to 5 hours of sleep since they are on tour. After their performance I hungout with Meredith Franco (bass/vocals) who also let me keep their playlist. 🙂 Julia Kugel (guitar/vocals), and Stephanie Luke (drums/vocals) were super awesome and they even took a couple of selfies with me! Check out the bottom of this post. 

 

Check out their first acoustic set! Enjoy!

I also included their 2013 performance at Hotel Vegas.
