Ohio rock band Saintseneca will be rolling into Austin tonight as part of a tour to support their new album Such Things. The records title track is a warm and bubbly introduction to the band and their vigorous songs, making the group a great choice when deciding what band to watch as you kick off your weekend. Due to Waterloo’s tight capacity for in store performances, we highly suggest that you get to the store as early as you can in order to get a good spot to watch the show.
Santa Cruz, California is more known for its beaches than for its music, though reggae band The Expendables is set out to change that. Playing breezy reggae and ska tunes that bring a bright and lively energy to each stage they perform on, the group will be playing at Empire Control Room and Garage where fans old and new can experience their refreshing tunes that you won’t be able to stop spinning. With tracks such as “Down Down Down” from their self-titled record released in 2008, you will become wrapped up in the band’s music and have the urge to see them live.
Local Texas crooner Drew Fish knew he wanted to play music full time when he stepped onto the aging stage at Grune Hall in Grune, Texas, and after listening to the song “Playin’ With A Flame”, from his new album of the same name, we are very glad he made that decision as his music has the potential to become huge. While his songs have the simple country feel that we hear a lot in Austin, he would also fit right in with the musicians of Nashville, as his original country style will certainly turn heads and is good enough to compete with many of the musicians coming out of Music City.
Known for playing guitar in the Canadian post-hardcore band Alexisonfire, Dallas Green put a few solo songs up for download in 2004 under a new project called City and Colour, an acoustic band that shies away from his former band and their heavy music. With a devoted fan base and catchy acoustic songs that leave you wanting to hear more, City and Colour is certainly an act not to miss and is one that we recommend for this weekend.
Tickets: $30 (advance) $32 (day of show)
