04/06/10 @ Emo's CLOSEDSlough Feg, Bible of the Devil, Radio Moscow, Naam
The former Lord Weird Slough Feg fits right into Austin’s Fadó set with its Celtic folk-metal, the San Franciscans’ veteran niche banger status attracting hungry young bills such as this one. Chicago fourpiece and Cruz del Sur labelmates Bible of the Devil, Iowa hurricane psych trio Radio Moscow, and Brooklyn threepiece Naam, fresh off flattening SXSW 2010 with 1970s black-hole guitar, round out the weird. ATX bumper sticker not included.
07/09/09 @ Red 7 CLOSEDRadio Moscow
Brought to you by Russia’s international radio broadcasting service – by way of Iowa, admittedly – Radio Moscow does for Blue Cheer what the Black Keys do for 21st century blues: stomps it. Sophomore disc Brain Cycles
pulses with Parker Griggs’ best Hendrix, while bassist Zach Anderson’s monolithic fuzz mashes beats with drummer Cory Berry. Live is where the touring trio melts brains, bicycles, you name it.
