Sunday night is going to be a loud one at Spider House Ballroom as Austin’s own bone rattling blues rockers Amplified Heat headline a Red River Noise presents showcase that will serve as the venue’s Spring Break Kickoff Party.
Amplified Heat is a rock and roll family that consists Colombian (by way of Houston) brothers Jim (guitar/vocals), Gian (bass) and Chris Ortiz (drums). Their jaw dropping, rip your face off style is reminiscent of classic rock bands like Cream or Iron Butterfly, but sludgier. They also have way more amplifiers on stage than any one else normally does, but it totally works for them. Bring your ear plugs.
Austin hoot-rock band Other Lovers and DeKalb, IL rockers Starved Rock open the show. Come out early and hang out all night as your paid cover gets you three raffle tickets. Prizes include bar tabs, tickets to future shows, gift certificates and more. There’s also $2 Happy Hour all night.
Spider House Ballroom is located at 2906 Fruth Street. Doors open at 9 p.m. All ages welcome. $5 cover. Visit the Facebook event page here.
