Saturday, Feb. 15, three of Austin’s best locally based musical talents come together for one night at Stubb’s indoor to celebrate the release of Fractures, the sophomore release from progressive electro-rock band The Clouds Are Ghosts.
Austin-based rock trio Megafauna, led by singer/guitar shredder Dani Neff, open the show. Headliners in their own right, the group is gearing up for their forthcoming album Maximalist which is set for an April release. The album was mixed by legendary engineer Tim Palmer. Look forward to hearing some of that material on Saturday.
While on the subject of new material, the night belongs to band releasing a new album. Fractures, from Austin-based electro-fusion rockers The Clouds Are Ghosts, is an early fave for this year’s top release lists. It is a step up in quality in comparison to previous releases Harbinger and their self-titled debut released in 2009. Stream Fractures for yourself via Bandcamp here. Pick up a hard copy for yourself on Saturday.
Zeale, one of Austin’s favorite rappers who regularly jumps on indie bills, serves as the night’s headliner. According to this week’s Chronicle, he’s been working on new material in Los Angeles with the likes of Del the Funky Homosapien. Somehow, he continues to impress and he never fails to bring life to the party. After Zeale’s set the night will carry on with a dance party with Class Prez.
Stubb’s is located at 801 Red River. Doors open at 9 p.m. All ages are welcome. Concert will be on indoor stage. Advance tickets are available online here. Visit the official Facebook event page here.
