The rock-revival in Austin has been revving up many engines around town and has been inspiring a whole new generation to borrow, recreate and to totally rock. The formula: great hair, a sex-drenched attitude, vocals that could corral a pack of wolves and a insatiable appetite for Black Sabbath. All these bands have mastered the formula and solved the problem. The problem that this town has been missing. More heavy rocking. On Friday, Feb. 15, Stubb’s will be hosting a night of prog-rock mixed with a little psych and a whole lot of fist pumping.
To kick off the night, the three piece comprised of Ian Graham, Lisa Alley, and Jason Sullivan of The Well, start it off right with some heavy-hollowed guitar fuzz and a little darkness of doom-metal. Their latest album, Seven, was produced by local Jason Morales of Tia Carrera and is making its way out on to the scene. Next on the bill, Burning Avalanche will tear it up with with their style of hard-hitting-guitar-bashing mixed with a party tone that is sure to stir the crowd into a full-out jam.
Lastly, headlining the night is local greats, Scorpion Child. These guys have rewritten the bible on rocking and conjure up that nostalgic appeal that only the greats from the past could exude. Their heavy prog-rocking has built a fan base locally and the news is spreading. Bandmembers solidify that heavy psych-sound driven by guitarist David Finner, Aryn Black and Christopher Cowart on vocals, and Shawn Alvear on Drums. Scorpion Child will rock you senseless and leave you lost in a time far, far away.
Stubb’s is located at 801 Red River St. Doors at 9 p.m., opened to all ages with a $10 cover or you can get your tickets here.
