Club DeVille presents an eclectic line-up for this Thursday night. The evening will encompass an array of sounds that capture rock, indie, folk, ambient and instrumental within a three-hour time span.
Experimental rock band SuperLiteBike will be headlining the show. On stage, the Austin-based band carries a strong ’80s presence in the sense that their performances carry a charismatic, energetic, rock star bravado. The band recently participated in the Oh Snap! Festival alongside 50 local bands. SuperLiteBike has been known to creatively promote their shows with amusing and clever videos, charming an audience to attend. If you want a brief distraction, go ahead and watch them here.
The Baker Family, an indie rock, folk quartet composed of Mr. Baker (guitar, vocals, banjo), Mrs. Baker (vocals, keys), Nathan Ribner (bass) and Darryl Schomberg (drums) will be bringing a softer, more sentimental essence after Equals’ upbeat, ambient orchestrations. During Free Week, The Baker Family was listed on four bills, performing at Club DeVille, Frank, Beauty Bar, and The North Door. The folk quartet can often be caught on folk and stompfolk bills with Hello Wheels, Wild Child, and Shakey Graves—it will be interesting to see how their style brilliantly lingers and compliments Thursday’s showcase.
San Marcos based ambient/instrumental quintet, Equals will kicking off the night at 9 p.m. with their unique style. Equals has been picking up momentum in the last year with the release of their self-titled, debut EP; signing with Paper Thin Media; performing at Wild Frontier Fest and opening for Zechs Marquise; and within the last week, winning the Deli Emerging Austin Artist of 2011 Poll. Currently, the band is working with Alex Bhore (This Will Destroy You) on another EP. Above all things, Equals will bring an abstract and distinguishing style and performance, setting up the night flawlessly for The Baker Family and SuperLiteBike.
Club DeVille is located at 900 Red River St. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. The show is for ages 21 and up, and cover is $5. Click on the links to visit the show post on Facebook.
