    Free Week w/ the Crack Pipes, High Heavens, Tyler Keith, Narrow Haunts

    The Crack Pipes have been in earnest stylistic flux since 1995, showcased in the melancholic blues of Beauty School (2005) and glazed psychedelic/garage rock conviction of Every Night Saturday Night (2012). Last year, High Heavens duo Ernest Salaz and John Matthew Walker crafted immensely soulful soft-rock prayers “Life is a Loan Shark” and “Hundred Bullets” with producer Stuart Sikes, featuring instrumentation by members of ...Trail of Dead and Glorium. Rockabilly soloist Tyler Keith of the Neckbones visits from Mississippi, while Narrow Haunts underscore angst-rock in this Free Week phantasm.

    Free Week: Swass Nite w/ God Shell, ExCxLxCxCxBxPxCxTxSx, Discreet, Necklace

    We apologize for the inconvenience: this week’s “Buns of Steel” aerobic class has been relocated to the 7th circle of hell. As twerkable as it is ear piercing, Austin’s perennial SWASS Nite showcase shrieks into Free Week, gathering the city’s most fearsome punk/metal noisemakers under a party-positive banner. Whereas Discreet and God Shell occupy opposing rhythmic ends of the blackened screamo sludge continuum – groovy and pummeling, respectively – ExCxLxCxCxBxPxCxTxSx pulls up the function repping the, uh, “gorenoise” genre. While the Chronicle has yet to discover an aerobic dance fit for their bubbling liquid pus sound, we will keep trying.
    Fri., Jan. 6, 6pm. Complimentary drink w/ RSVP.

    Free Week w/ Amplified Heat, Duel, Sudden Deaf

    Conjuring the doom-braised Kraken brings a like-minded metal triumvirate to steam roll through Seventies fuzz distortion and omnipresent overlord vox. Duel’s Lord of the Ring sorcery couples with ricochet bullet solos and brick and mortar riffs in Valley of Shadows (2019), and In Carne Persona (2021) could soundtrack the Odyssean voyages in Game of Thrones. Opting for searing blues and electric boogie, Amplified Heat cooks chord slabs in Texas-scorched heat on Southern stomp “It’s Hard” and bourbon-fueled romp “In a Forest of Love.” New metalheads on the block, Sudden Deaf, released debut Havoc brimming with hellfire aggression reminiscent of Thin Lizzy.
