Bleachers @ Emo’s (Sept. 19, 2017)

Pictures and Words by David Brendan Hall “This is our first headline show in Austin!” exclaimed Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff toward the beginning of the band’s Tuesday night show at the storied Central Texas venue. “We’ve been waiting five fuckin’ years for this!” His exuberance wasn’t totally lost on the...

Pixies w/ Public Access T.V. – Stubb’s Austin – May 1, 2017

Pictures and Words by David Brendan Hall Before Monday night’s sold-out gig at Stubb’s BBQ, the Pixies hadn’t played the mainstay Austin venue for about 12 ½ years. When they took that stage the last time – Oct. 20, 2004, freshly united with original bassist Kim Deal in the mix...

Cavity – After Death

Cavity – After Death

I used to work with this junkie a couple years back. He was a nice enough guy when he was sober, I guess but, more often than not, he wasn’t and when he wasn’t he was a slobbering, treacherous mess. Not one of those cinematic nightmares of after-school specials but...

Ghostlimb – Difficult Loves

Ghostlimb – Difficult Loves

I’m afraid I’m in one of my self-pity ruts and that sucks because if I don’t crawl the fuck out of it STAT, I’ll start in with the shame spiraling and once that shit train leaves the station my life will be all suppositories and sighs, goddamn Modern Family marathons...

Violent Soho – WACO

Violent Soho – WACO

I’m pretty sure I saw Violent Soho a few years back. Was I with Weston? Yeah. A whole bunch of other kids too. They played a set between The Bronx and Mariachi el Bronx at the Bowery and Weston fucking hated them for being corporate or poseurs or not featuring...

Snakehole – Snakehole

Snakehole – Snakehole

Snakehole is pretty much exactly what I thought Bully was going to sound like what with all the punk as fuck hard girl pedal stomp revival thrown up in advance of last year’s Feels Like and I know that’s fucking ludicrous. I do. There’s no way in hell there’d ever...
