Sluur, Lake of Fire, Nalgadas @ Hotel Vegas (El Paso Invades)

El Paso Invades Austin!


Yes it is true, El Paso invaded Austin with it’s special forces and gave everyone some much needed Nalgadas!

Not to mention that Sluur left everyone shoegazed till there was nothing left but a Lake of Fire!


Ladies and gents, Sluur is one of my favorite live bands with a shoegazey feel that has a touch of that post punk groove. Their sound sinks into my soul leaving me mesmerized and feeling pretty chill.

Check out Sluur’s release, Choice, is available on Bandcamp.

Fortunately there are bands out there that help me feel alive and untouchable. Give me PUNK ROCK any day! Nalgadas most definitely live up to their name, Leo Lara’s (Chief) crazy fucking drumming and Rat Benatar’s thundering vocals!  I love me some Nalgadas!

Lake of Fire aka (Lago De Fuego) I believe was originally from El Paso but has since relocated to Austin, TX.  Last time I saw Lake of Fire was at 2016’s SXSW show at Stay Gold. (The Cosmic Clash SXSW Post, Lake of Fire). Their Facebook describes their Genre as an amalgamation. Lake of Fire is definitely an amalgamation that comes out psychedelically beautifully. Check out their Fire Friendly EP on Bandcamp.

While trying to get through the crowd from one stage to another, I was able to catch the last song from the Shivery Shakes. These gentlemen have been around for a bit and they never fail to give an energetic performance.

Mobley is a multi instrumental genius whose beats, guitar riffs, and vocals are spot on. Mobley has so much going on throughout his performance, it’s insane. Without further delay, Mobley’s intro.

Lowin, Riders Against The Storm @ Float Fest 2016

Lowin, Riders Against The Storm @ Float Fest 2016

Seems like I am always trying to catch up on all the cool and awesome music that keeps on rolling in.  So here is one of couple of blitz posts that should bring us back up to speed.

Lowin –  members Sara Houser, Chris DeGeorge, Michael David Sanders and Nathan Ribner put on a great show. This band’s sound is tight, energetic and compliments Sara Houser’s magnificent vocals. I would love to catch Lowin on a smaller venue but watching them at Float Fest was a ton of fun. Super happy I got to see them!

Riders Against The Storm – What can I say about this group but that they are fucking great! Wow! Energetic, awesome musicianship that connects with the audience. I had a chance to hang out with Qi Dada(vocals) for a couple of minutes before she took the stage, she is a super cool lady with a ton of talent, what am I saying they are all talented!

I recommend watching out for any of these groups and you won’t be disappointed.

San Antonio, TX – Jared Putnam, the main man behind the The March Divide, will launch a string of fall tour dates in Austin, Texas on Friday, November 4th, the same day he releases the five-song “Bribing Jace,” which represents the prolific songwriter’s fourth EP, in addition three full-length releases, in just over three years.

Saturdays, the most recent album by The March Divide album, arrived in May, 2016.  The upcoming run of dates will take Putnam throughout Texas (including shows with Texas Is The Reason’s, Garrett Klahn) and out west to California.

“There’s an untapped type of pop music that I’ve been on a quest to make,” Putnam says, explaining the sound of “Bribing Jace,” and going on to further describe it as, “not redefined, just redesigned.” Putnamcontinues, saying, “While I’ve never really been willing to sacrifice a song to an experiment, I went as close to all-in as I could this time. Chasing this white whale was a lot of fun!”

“Bribing Jace” contains three songs recorded during the Saturdayssessions that Putnam loved, but felt didn’t quite fit the feel of the album, and two brand-new tracks, including the single, “I Might.”

‘I Might’ is a very different song for me,” Putnam says. “When I initially came up with the riff, I had several changes that worked, but for whatever reason, just playing that one riff over and over was the thing that felt right.” Listen to “I Might” from “Bribing Jace” via Austin Town Hall now.

“Bribing Jace,” the latest EP from The March Divide arrives on Nov. 4th, 2016. It is available for pre-order here. Saturdays, the latest album from The March Divide is out now. Jared Putnam is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
