    Austin Terror Fest presents Unsane, Plaque Marks, Cold Wives, Super Thief

    Having previewed Sterilize at Sidewinder earlier this year, teethgrinding NYC noise rock trio Unsane now encores locally. New songs as comfortably abrasive as the classic material, the trio guarantees an ear-pummeling good time. Philly compadres Plaque Marks, featuring members of Fight Amp and Ecstatic Vision and an explicitly Cherubs/Rusted Shut aesthetic, support. ATX bashers Cold Wives, starring Brendan Tobin from Red Sparowes and Made Out of Babies, open.

      A celebration of music by Pink Floyd

      From the ragtag psychedelia of 1967 debut Piper at the Gates of Dawn to 1979’s conceptual condemnation The Wall, Pink Floyd obsesses Austin musicians. Saturday’s orgy of local Floydian acolytes cover hits and deep cuts from Britain’s prog monarchs. Players pulled from 17 Austin acts, including the Midnight Stroll, Star Parks, Darkbird, Marijuana Sweet Tooth, and Clouds Are Ghosts perform against a lysergic light show.

      Davis Gallery: The Afterlife of Artifacts

      We could probably just mention that this exhibition (featuring a quintet of assemblage artists) contains work by Steve Brudniak and watch the smarter crowds gather for some deep gawking … but we wouldn't want to diss the talented likes of Barbara Irwin, John Sager, Larry Seaman, and Steve Wiman – whose complex three-dimensional creations are also well worthy of your time.

      The Meditations, Clinton Fearon

      Anyone bearing witness to the opening scene of 1978 cult film Rockers, wherein Rasta hymn “Satta Massagana” is sung under a thatched hut without an amplifier in sight, knows that roots reggae often comes truly alive when stripped down to the most basic elements. So it will be when Clinton Fearon of the Gladiators touches down for a pair of unplugged shows, accompanied only by an acoustic guitarist and vocal harmonies from his daughter.: Raised in the rural countryside of Jamaica, Fearon ventured to Kingston in 1969 as a teenager and soon became one-third of the Gladiators and a session musician at both Coxsone Dodd’s legendary Studio One and Lee “Scratch” Perry’s Black Ark. The man’s basslines back Max Romeo, Burning Spear, Yabby You, Junior Byles, and dozens, maybe hundreds of others. Leaning on stone classics including “Let Jah Be Praised” and “Richman Poorman,” which he penned for the Gladiators, Fearon’s back-to-the-roots set opens the Flamingo Cantina show while an earlier performance that day blesses the grand opening of Pool Burger (2315 Lake Austin Blvd.) with al fresco island vibes served alongside choice selections from KUTX’s Jay Trachtenberg and former Soul Happening DJ – and now New Orleans’ WWOZ jock – Noel Waggener.: One of Jamaica’s golden age harmony trios, the Meditations headline later that night on Sixth Street. The group’s 1976 debut, Message From the Meditations, included sublime single “Woman Is Like a Shadow” and quickly garnered them work backing the biggest names on the island: Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Gregory Isaacs, etc. The current lineup is still led by founding member, bandleader, and producer Ansel “Meditation” Cridland.
