Rapture Schmapture

Party 'til you puke this weekend!

Rapture Schmapture

Are you going to be left behind on Saturday? So are a lot of people. Thankfully, Austin's got some good heathen music to drown out the wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Local music zine Pau Wau holds the third benefit for its next issue at Hotel Vegas, with performances from Zorch, Weird Weeds, Field Dress, and Sleep Good.

Former Golden Boy James Arthur drops the fuzzbombs of his Manhunt on a Beerland matinee (2pm), with Air Traffic Controllers, Muhammadali, White Crime, and Followed by Static.

Sex Bruises, Book of Shadows, Dromez, and Vanessa Rossetto bring the locusts to Trailer Space Records.

Picacyu-Makoto, featuring members of Acid Mothers Temple and Afrirampo, collide with locals Reverse X-Rays, Ralph White, How I Quit Crack, Thomas Fang, and more at Club 1808.
