Musician and host Laurie Gallardo recaps tonight’s best bet for a great Austin music experience.
Following the breakup of their previous psych-gaze band Creepoid, Anna and Patrick Troxell forged an electro post-punk dynamic as the duo Lovelorn. And now the ATX-by-way-of Philly outfit is ramping things up with two new additions to the line-up, guitarists Steve Pike and Kyle Harris. No doubt extra shreds will add even more discordant dimensions […]
Wait. You missed Night 1 of Deezie Brown’s Wire Wheel Opera House series (Part II) last night?? Do not despair! The Austin-based rap artist and producer behind 5th Wheel Fairy Tale is presenting the next round tonight, Thursday Oct. 12, at Chess Club on Red River. And true to form from the previous iteration of […]
This is the definition of an all-around badass. Anastasia Hera picks up where frustration or despair would’ve left off. Her philosophy? “Life as art.” Feeling passionately about rap since her childhood, Hera focused on developing this love of her favorite music into a signature style that doesn’t adhere to just one genre. Facing single motherhood […]
Don’t fret, pet. This evening, treat yourself to some electrifying glam daddy blues. Austin-based songwriter and face-melter Jeremiah Jackson describes his style as a combination of Bowie, Butthole Surfers and Queens of the Stone Age, all rolled into one sequin-clad glam rocker. Catch the vibe at Jackson’s show tonight, Tuesday Oct. 10, at Meanwhile […]
It’s a golden twilight, when the stars and a sliver of the moon are visible, even though the sun hasn’t completely set yet. It’s a wisp of a breeze…or was that a ghost? It can be the early morning light just as easily as it could be a star-studded night sky. And, much to the […]
One could compare the stark beauty of any given piece by instrumental ensemble Balmorhea to a vigorous inhale/exhale while standing before a gorgeous, never-ending landscape in the natural world. Breathing in the beauty, you’re overwhelmed by the majestic surroundings while simultaneously astounded by their quiet power. It’s unsettling and wonderful. Such is the power of […]

The forthcoming album Fox Street Blues by Buenos Diaz has a family story behind it, perhaps one that’s familiar to many generations of survivors. As songwriter/vocalist Nick Diaz explains, “These stories are unfortunately the norm and a large part of the American fabric.” But the album is a testament to how Diaz’ family persevered, and […]
Earplugs are not optional for this one. The double headliner at Mohawk tomorrow night, Tuesday Oct. 3, is over the top sick. Tokyo heavy sludge masters Boris share an explosive bill with one of the most influential bands in several things heavy, from sludge to grunge, noise to doom, Melvins. Like, what the hell?! Both […]
Put this in your 2024 calendar, in case you missed out this year. On Sept. 21, Mayor Kirk Watson officially declared the day as David Shabani Day in the City of Austin, presenting Shabani with “a proclamation for their craft and work in the industry both locally and abroad.” This is meaningful for Shabani on […]
Truly a Renaissance man. No exaggeration. Songwriter. Musician. Multi-media artist – which you’ll know first hand if you’ve ever been to Mobley performance. And now, in the recent words of Jonny Jukebox, “Are you ready for the next level?” Mobley’s journey takes its next cue from a collection of demos titled Worktape, and that’s exactly […]
We’re all guilty of building up expectations. So, you might spin Corinne Bailey Rae‘s latest blazer Black Rainbows and find it something of a departure for Rae, in terms of a style that incorporates R&B, jazz and soul. This one gets loud, bold, experimental in many parts, powered by guitar and unapologetic vitality, all inspired […]
Put the go-to retro label aside for a minute. The Heavy Heavy moves beyond that with a multi-layered ‘60s sound on their debut EP Life and Life Only. The way Georgie Fuller and Will Turner channel psych and mod influences with folk and soul in a timeless shimmer feels more instinctive than imitative. Then again, […]
Truth be told, your nerdy AMM host is drooling like a goblin over Hyperreal Film Club‘s upcoming scary October screenings at Hotel Vegas. This Austin-based film lovers’ club, formed in 2016, does badass pop-up screenings of independent films of every genre at various spots around town, and provides a platform for guest columnists to write […]
