Red River Noise as a brand has been around for 15 months, but the people who write, edit and operate this beastly machine have been around for years. We are Austin music veterans, as fans and promoters, and we—the people behind the Noise—aren’t going anywhere. We will continue to write, take photos and shoot videos in Austin. But not under the name Red River Noise.
We have awesome news for you… news we can’t share just quite yet. All we can say is that we’re celebrating with a farewell showcase at the end of the month. Red River Noise is going bye-bye (sort of).
Come party with the Red River Noise crew at Stubb’s on Thursday, June 30. We will be inviting back one of our favorite young bands, The Young Maths, to headline while San Antonio up-and-comers Pop Pistol and Yes, Inferno will open. We will be making an official announcement about Red River Noise’s future the following day. Click here for details about that.
Red River Noise is not dying. It is transforming, like an Autobot primed to kick Decepticon ass. It is expanding, like a Red River rat’s waistline after years of Lone Star and Hot Dog King. It is growing, like the bulge in our pants while watching the Air Sex World Championships. TMI? We don’t care.
So join us at Stubb’s on June 30. Here’s more info about the bands…
San Antonio experimental rockers Yes, Inferno, may be a new name for Austin, but they are a serious buzz band in San Antonio right now. They’ve been featured in various local San Antonio media outlets and currently grace the cover of San Antonio’s Backbeat magazine. The band is currently performing in support of their self-titled debut, out now on Texas Is Funny Records. Yes, Inferno will be making their Stubb’s debut as our showcase opener, so come early as they take the stage at 10 p.m.
Next is the atmospheric indie trio Pop Pistol, a band ready to be the next big breakout star from the Alamo City since Girl In A Coma. With two EPs and a stellar full-length album, Pop Pistol has plenty of arsenal in their catalog to win over even the most discriminating indie fans. Their latest EP, Disappearing Edges, was also released through Texas Is Funny Records. Pop Pistol performs at 11 p.m.
Headlining our farewell showcase will be The Young Maths from McAllen. The indie dance-rock quartet is one of the most energetic and dynamic live performers to come out of South Texas. No stranger to Austin, The Young Maths performed at Mohawk last fall and Stubb’s indoor in January during Free Week for the Austin Vida showcase. At every show, they have the crowd on their feet and dancing. Be ready to stay late as The Young Maths perform at midnight.
