Ume, the female-fronted rock band, will be performing tonight at Emo’s Inside. It seems that the band never stays put as they’re constantly on tour after the release of their 2009 Sunshower EP was well-received. Ume has garnered a lot of press love around the states, especially in Austin.
Lead singer/guitarist Lauren Larson with the addition of her husband/bassist Eric Larson and drummer Jeff Barrera have created the right blend of ’90s garage rock layered with sensual melodies. Mrs. Larson’s contradictory razor-sharp and sultry vocals just gives it that last finishing touch. But it’s the live show that’s has all the people talking. With the front woman rocking out her long blond hair as hard as she is adorable, it’s not hard to understand why.
Doors open at 8:30 p.m. Cover is $5 if you pay in advance. Otherwise, it’s $7 at the door for 21+ and $9 for everyone under 21.
