Frontier Bar is hosting an official EAST (East Austin Studio Tour) after-party on Saturday, Nov. 10, and five percent of the bar proceeds will go to EAST founders Big Medium, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting visual arts and artists in Texas.
EAST kicks off on Nov. 8 and ends Nov. 18, covering roughly 175 locations around east Austin and featuring artists, studios, exhibition spaces, pop-up shows and tons of fun art-centered events, all free and open to the public.
After a day of inspiring, creative east side bliss, jump a couple of blocks down to Frontier Bar and make it a day of supporting local art and Texas music.
First on the bill at 5:30 p.m. is the spaghetti western-styled saloon jam, Haun’s Mill. At 6:30, Dallas-based Bravo, Max! is steadily taking over D-town with their progressive Americana sweep and is about to conquer Austin. Up next is the indie-pop Houstonians, Wheel Workers, at 7:30. Followed up by pop-punkers The Pons at 8:30 and San Antonio’s progressive rock band, Yes, Inferno at 9:30. The family affair, electro Mexi-pop band Migrant Kids goes on at 10:30.
Closing out the night, Dead Left will take the stage at 11:30. Frontman Neal Kassanoff creates a musical voyage brought on by a backing band of seasoned Austin musicians. Featuring Lauren Gurgiolo (Okkervil River), Gray Parsons and Lindsey Greene. Headliners, She Sir, bring the shoegazing ’90s shimmer to a colorful climax. A nice, complex, psychedelic fusion of dreamy lyrics with ’60s inspired pop.
Frontier Bar is located at 2421 Webberville Rd. Admission is free for ages 21 and up, and $10 for under 21. RSVP here for a chance to win one of two $20 bar tabs to be redeemed at this party on Do512.
