It was maybe a 20-minute gig, but in that curt window Gunplay laid out why he’s emerged as rap’s premier, working mercenary. Those biting words. That post-Rick Ross howl that stuns.
Welsh alt-rock trio The Joy Formidable kicked things off with their thunderous sound, while Austin psych-rockers The Black Angels closed the show with their sensuous psychedelia.
Two Door Cinema Club is a hard band not to dance to. But how can you blame the ladies? Women seem to go a little loco over the whole skinny jeans, poppy jams and Irish accent thing.
This kickass trio of Latin ladies from San Antonio will be performing with Young Girls and The Bluebonnets on the Mohawk outdoor stage Saturday, Feb. 9.

Alanis Morissette played a sold-out show at Stubb’s on Oct. 30. She performed a lot of her old hits during the two-hour set, so it kind of felt like I stepped through a time warp back to the ’90s.
It was good to see that these fans were not just fans of their past album, Conditions, but fans who are following their every move and continue to be intrigued by this band after their second album.
A girl never forgets her first time. For me, my first time with Gwar was on Thursday, Oct. 25., as Gwar unleashed their metal mayhem on Emo’s. Gwar puts on one hell of a show.
Gwar heads to Emo’s on Fate or Chaos Tour with new lead guitarist, Pustulus Maximus. DevilDriver, Cancer Bats and Legacy of Disorder open up the show.

I have never seen so many pieces of DJ equipment on one stage in my life as I did at the RJD2 show on July 12 at The Belmont. Everyone’s gear was pre set-up in an organized jumble of knobs, wires, screens and blinking lights
I wonder if The Stones crowd got a special track picked out beforehand just for them. I wonder if Coachella was told that there aren’t many crowds left in the world like them.

A surprising mix of different types of music fans, club-goers and curious Austinites gathered on East Riverside Tuesday night at for Lil Kim’s arrival, and the Austin faction of Team Queen Bee was more than ready to greet the legendary hip hop diva.
Hip hop is alive and well in Austin. We may not be Houston or Dallas when it comes to scoring the major arena level tours or being the springboard for making Texas hip hop artists blow up in the national scene, but no city in Texas can compete with Austin when it comes to loving old […]
The Mohawk on Red River was the perfect setting Friday for San Francisco-based rocker Ty Segall. Some call Segall’s music garage rock, some call it punk. Whatever you call it, it’s awesome. The live show is even better and makes fans go ape-shit. I think I still smell like beer. Touring mates White Fence were […]
It seems that a Social Distortion (Social D) concert is close to becoming a semiannual event in Austin. Their last visit in 2010 felt like just the other night. Still, the experience is so memorable because we so rarely get big punk rock touring shows in Austin that you hold on to each moment. The […]
