    Patrick Sweany, Greyhounds

    Seasoned songwriters for the likes of Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, and Ruthie Foster, Andrew Trube and Anthony Farrell have released a slew of albums as Greyhounds, including Change of Pace (2016) and Heaven on Earth (2015), which Farrel dubs “Hall & Oates meet ZZ Top.” Behind newly seasoned drummer Ed Miles, the trio stomps through scorched Texas blues and Memphis soul on last year’s seventh album, Cheyenne Valley Drive.

    Sine (album release)

    Rona Rougeheart is the beating heart of Sine, an alt-rock act dripping a sexy, synth-y, Depeche Mode vibe and Garbage influence. The New York-born, Austin-based former drummer for electro-pop outfit Dead Love Club multitasks on keyboards and percussion alongside drummer Sonny Sanchez on Sine debut Insomniæ, taming industrial noise in a beat-driven exercise of rousing carnality and exploring the erotic moods of sexual politics.

    Comethazine, Lil Gnar, JayDaYoungan, TNT Tez

    Over blown-out trap production, Jahmier Velazquez, 20, personifies indulgence while embellishing life as an otherwise normal youth from St. Louis. The style racks up close to 3 million monthly listeners on Spotify and solidified “Bands” as an opulent banger. On “Walk,” he brags that his weed is so strong his “blunt be doing push-ups.” Fellow two-decade life veteran Jaydayoungan (born Javorius Scott) opens with a punkish brand of Louisiana bounce.

    DaveFest 4 w/ Worm Suicide, Violent Night, the Boleys, Hell Fury, Disko Wolves, Runescarred, Dharma Kings, the Dead Coats, Christ Toast & the Jerks, Adrian Conner, Zero Percent, Sex Pump, Inflatable Bastards

    One of the ultimate mensches of Austin music, Dave Prewitt’s been recording and disseminating live footage of local bands since 1986 and he’s never tried to squeeze a penny out of anyone. “I’ve actively avoided making any kind of money off it and still turn down employment in the field because it would kill my passion,” admits the videographer and cable access personality behind CapZeyeZ and Raw Time, 1990-2007, and current host for ATX acts via DaveTV on Austin Public Access. An enduring veteran of local DIY media, Prewitt’s programs embody an unpretentious fan perspective on Austin music. For that, bands revere him. So much so that in 2015, Dereck Todd from scum punks Worthless Humans organized the first DaveFest, a fundraiser to cover the costs of DaveTV’s production fees, against the wishes of Prewitt, who avoids asking for handouts. Turns out there’s plenty of homegrown artists eager to help raise money for DaveTV, so DaveFest became an annual benefit with two days of diverse lineups reflecting Prewitt’s all-over-the-map musical proclivities. The fourth iteration sponsors 27 bands on two stages this weekend at Kick Butt Coffee. Donations goes to production fees and upgrading audiovisual gear. “Everything we get, we put back into the show to try to get to the next level,” says Prewitt. Friday’s lineup yields performances from Adrian & the Sickness/Beaux Cheveux frontwoman Adrian Conner (8:30pm), psych-punk quartet the Dead Coats (9:30pm), grinding crossover thrash act Hellfury (11:30pm), and punk ’n’ roll ruffians Worm Suicide (1am). Night two summons former local anti-folk rambler Hamell on Trial (7:30pm), whose excellent October LP, The Night Guy at the Apocalypse: Profiles of a Rushing Midnight, sounds like Shel Silverstein singing inner city tales of drugs and robbery that’d make Jim Carroll blush. For Prewitt, it’ll be momentous.
