One of the great things about Austin is that we have the privilege of being able to go out any random night of the week and be treated to an array of multi-talented musicians across a number of genres.
This Wednesday, Jan. 30, at Beerland, it’s going to be a great shogazey/psych/indie/garage kind of night full of this kind of talent. John Wesley Coleman, Skeleton Coast, Black Forest Fire and Leslie Sisson will be performing for your listening pleasure.
John Wesley Coleman is currently one of my favorite quirky Austin musicians. He is a member of The Golden Boys, a talented writer and a gifted artist. This fascinating, unique musician will hook you with the deceiving, seemingly effortless, sweet kind of genius in his psych/country/folk/garage punk mash of music. Coleman will be headlining the evening.
Skeleton Coast hails from Fort Worth and has a shoegaze-pop, electronic kind of sound. There is a spacey kind of vibe to it that is sometimes mixed with a sense of urgency that makes for a great juxtaposition that fits well into their music.
Black Forest Fire is a band that Austin can be proud to claim. This band has a chill, calming, slightly melancholic feel to their sound and a dreamy, beautiful sadness in their tone that is kind of addicting. Opening up the night will be the sweet sounds of the lovely Leslie Sisson.
Beerland is located at 711 Red River St. The show starts at 9 p.m.
