All Time Low at X Games

Over the last few years the X Games have become a popular event in Austin featuring not only extreme sports but also national and international bands to keep up with Austin’s title of Live Music Capital of the World. While this is the last year that the X Games will be making an appearance in Austin, they certainly are going out with a bang. Townson, Maryland band All Time Low will be making an appearance at the festival as a warm up to their summer tour with Blink 182. Consistently engaging and fun from start to finish, All Time Low is certainly a great band to watch when kicking off your Saturday with their pop punk jams that will bring a much needed energy to your weekend.

Blink 182 at X Games

While it seemed like Blink 182 had no chance of getting back together after the departure of founding guitarist Tom Delonge last year, bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker decided to forge ahead without Delonge, and brought on board Alkaline Trio guitarist Matt Skiba. Returning with an entirely new sound, Blink 182 will be releasing their upcoming album California on July 1’st, along with touring across the country with All Time Low and others. Take a listen to the group’s latest track “Bored to Death” below to see what they sound like with the new lineup.

Vampyre at The Mohawk

If you have energy left over from watching Refused tear the roof of The Mohawk, then stay awhile longer to watch Vampyre perform. A fairly new local act, Vampyre, has an energy that will resonate through the venue, while still having a softer side that will be a nice breather from the explosive energy of Refused. The group’s song “Disaster Cable” is a great song to get an introduction to their style. Certain to be a great time, we suggest that you check out this band even if you aren’t going to see Refused.

Tickets: $5.00 (21+) $7.00 *Free for Refused attendees
