    Free Week David Bowie tributes w/ members of Buffalo Hunt, the Clouds are Ghosts, Como Las Movies, conman, Dancing Days, Dream to Dream, Hamerzya, Hooka Hey, Joe With the Notes, Lauren Lakis, Mad Whit, Midcentury, Modern Medicine, My Education

    Birthday brothers, born 12 years apart, Elvis Presley and David Bowie both matured into musical royalty: Presley reigning loftily as “King of Rock ’n’ Roll,” while Bowie actually deferred a royal honorarium when he waved off an opportunity at British knighthood in 2003. Every year around their Jan. 8 DOB, Austin music celebrates Presley and Bowie – together and separately. The annual Bowie Birthday Bash at Drinks Lounge has been preemptively canceled over surging COVID numbers (they advise “Stay home, crank your speakers to 10 and listen to Bowie all night”) and the same is true with Austin’s glorious Elvis tribute, Ted Roddy & the King Conjure Orchestra, at Continental Club. Still, Hotel Vegas is doing it up big on Saturday with a Elvis impersonator available to marry five lucky couples (must pay for marriage license in advance) plus a hoot night of artists doing Bowie covers. The two legends who employed a lightning bolt as iconography are also being fêted the previous night, Friday, down south at the Far Out Lounge with the BowiElvis Festival featuring tribute performances from Graveltooth, Brian Scartocci, and Electric Gold plus the promise of serving each of the icon’s favorite sandwiches – ostensibly a peanut butter, banana, and bacon monstrosity and a croque monsieur, respectively – both fried!

    Free Week w/ Bleed, On Being an Angel, Hotmom, Deep Cross

    While NYC legends Unsane occupy outside, Mohawk’s scoops various exposures of heavy music indoors. I’ll save you a Google headache and reveal that Bleed (@bleed.214 on social media) is a new Dallas group incorporating members of Narrow Head and Garden of Mary. Announced as reworking early 2000s hard rock, September EP Somebody’s Closer placed vocalist Ryan Hughes in a fitting setting of bullheaded, precisely crunchy metal and grunge. From here in town, On Being an Angel finds a breezy proprietary blend of Nineties alternative haze. Find Hotmom’s pleasantly piercing punk on latest EP Stupid Vegan Band and Deep Cross’ industrial split album with Khost.

    Free Week w/ Unsane, Glassing

    Though the most recent and longest-lasting lineup of noise rock pioneers Unsane broke up for logistical reasons (three dudes, three different countries), singer/guitarist Chris Spencer still plays gigs highlighting the band’s early, pre-Total Destruction days. Billed as Early Cuts shows, the concerts also promote the re-release of the original group’s demos and first singles on Bandcamp – the beginning, hopefully, of a deluge of the trio’s long out-of-print initial work. The band blasts the Mohawk accompanied by fellow travelers: Today is the Day acolytes BLK OPS, blackened art metal wizards Glassing, and political post hardcore fanatics Easy Prey.
