This Friday, during one of the most jam-packed musical menageries of the year, Frontier Bar will host Austin City Locals and squeeze a few more options onto your plate, just when you thought you couldn’t handle more. Brought to you by Slacker Magazine and This One Goes To 11, the show includes All in the Golden Afternoon, Whitman, The Sour Notes, Letting Up Despite Great Faults and Feral Future. All for a wonderfully electro-pop, shoegazing, punk-rocking experience.
To start things off with a bang, enter Feral Future. When you have a hankering for a little old-school punk, well, its just what the doctor ordered. With femme fatale front ladies Kate Moyer and Stephanie Mueller, these girls really know how to riot. Spot on to many anarchy-powered female fronted punk bands like the X-Ray Specs, The Slits and the Lunachicks, they are a reincarnation of some heavy grrrrl power.
Now that your fired up, take a moment to come down from your feral high and breathe in the likes of Letting Up Despite Great Faults. This dreamy indie-pop band mixes melodious electronic soundscapes with a little shoegazing guitar action. Next up, The Sour Notes muster in another dreamy state of feverish guitars and romantic interludes between front woman and man, Jared Boulanger and Kelly Dewitt. Following up is co-headliners, Whitman. Named after one of Austin’s most notorious murderers, Whitman delivers sounds far from what you would think. A string of heartfelt lyricisms, sweet nostalgic nineties guitar riffs and anthemic rock of daubaucherous nights and good times.
All leading up to headliners, All in the Golden Afternoon. Appropriately named after a Lewis Carroll poem, it stems from a dreamy state of vocal aspirations, guitar reverb and shoegaze. A very psychedelic venture brought to you by Rachel Stagg and Carlos Jackson. This duo delivers the goods and take you on a journey fit for fairytales.
Frontier Bar is located at 2421 Webberville Rd. Doors at 8 p.m. and as always, it’s free for ages 21 and up.
