The monthly Red Bull Sound Select live music series returns this Saturday, Aug. 23, to Hotel Vegas. This month’s headliner is none other than Seattle-based psych rock group Night Beats, whom you may remember from their performances at Austin Psych Fest. The group is on tour performing in support of their latest release, Sonic Bloom, released in fall of 2013.
Dallas-based surf-punk quartet Sealion join the party in support of their latest album, Heavy Fizz. Sealion is one of those groups that offer a couple of different vibes sonically, using both bassist Samantha Villavert and guitarist Hunter Moehring as lead vocalists. The two compliment each other well while maintaining the group’s edge. Hear it or yourself by listening to Heavy Fizz below.
The local representation comes from show openers MIRROR TRAVEL. Formerly known as Follow That Bird, the group is now on Austin-based tastemaker label Modern Outsider, which released their full-length debut Mexico. The grungy psych-rockers will be performing as a duo this Saturday for the first time in a long time, featuring only members Tiffanie Lanmon and Lauren Green. MIRROR TRAVEL kick the show off at 9 p.m.
