    DreamGaze ATX w/ Magnet School, Bloody Knives, Lacing, Since Always, Dethgaze

    Dreamgaze favors amp-torturing guitars and whispered confessions rather than vocal hooks and forthright sentiment, an aesthetic given wide berth over two nights on Red River. Friday’s Lone Star pedalboard abusers feature Austin’s Magnet School, whose 2016 album The Art of Telling Truth is one of Texas’ finest contributions to the genre. Propulsive ATX fuzz merchants Bloody Knives, Chattanooga traditionalists Lacing, Houston shimmers Since Always, and Brownsville psych janglers Dethgaze emerge first.

    Clan of Xymox

    Amsterdam darkwave clocks over three decades in Xymox. Sixteenth LP Days of Black showcases their classic sound: throbbing beats, orchestral synths, delay-soaked guitars, and mainstay Ronny Moorings’ detached whine. Eighties club hits “Imagination” and “Obsession” should fit right in. Canadian industrial goths Decoded Feedback and local electro crunch faith keeper Curse Mackey (Pigface, Evil Mothers, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult) opens.

    Cigarettes After Sex

    Cigarettes After Sex is for the hopeless romantics. The simple instrumentation, heavy bass, and Greg Gonzalez’s subtly distorted vocals create the perfect platform for his lovelorn lyrics. Introduced with 2012 EP I, the El Paso native remained remote until last year’s eponymous bow, dark, intimate pop-noir for the faint-hearted. “If I abandoned love, I’d be a man without dreams,” whispers Gonzalez on “Opera House.”

    Broken Social Scene, The Belle Game

    Following a seven-year hiatus, Canadian collective Broken Social Scene reinvigorated their shambling, instrumental indie rock on 2017’s Hug of Thunder. Founders Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning, joined by Feist and others, maintain the canonized essence of 2002’s sophomore breakout You Forgot It in People. Vancouver band the Belle Game open up with propellant pop. Inside afterward, Guatemalan songstress and Latin Grammy winner Gaby Moreno unfurls her soulful, bilingual blues preceded by local Latin polymath Davíd Garza.

    Rodeo Austin w/ Turnpike Troubadours

    As Rodeo Austin 2018 wanes, Oklahoma’s Turnpike Troubadours ride hard behind October’s fifth LP, A Long Way From Your Heart, Red Dirt country grit hinging on road-worn ballads and roots rocking jams. From the opening drama of “The Housefire” to closing front porch picking on “Sunday Morning Paper,” frontman Evan Felker paints hometown heroes and outcasts with a universal appeal.
