    Bluekeys Fest Day 1 w/ Favor (midnight), the Point, Blue Tongue, the Get Lows, Fan Club (8:00)

    Bluekeys Magazine, a teen-led, open-minded art zine, celebrates three years with their first-ever festival – jam-packed with 15 bands across triple venues. Day one leads with masterful and hypnotic psychedelic jazz fusionists the Point, carried by an undulating drumline and Sixties organ. Come Saturday, Daydream Twins will entrance you with slowly strummed choral guitar riding dreamy vocals – alongside Fawn’s shoegaze showcase of interweaving, heavily distorted riffs and melancholic lines. Self-described “dollar store trash-glam-punk” band Lord Friday the 13th brings artful vaudeville to the final day. Beyond music, the fest also offers an assortment of local vintage, tattoos, and, of course, copies of Bluekeys’ own zines.

    Okkervil River, Booher

    Among Austin’s powerhouse indie outfits of the Aughts, Okkervil River rose behind an immensely literate and cathartic catalog, with Down the River of Golden Dreams, Black Sheep Boy, and The Stage Names producing one of the decade’s best three-album runs. Although frontman Will Sheff relocated to Brooklyn, he maintained the band’s ethos, and now returns to Austin with his first proper solo LP, Nothing Special, an intensely introspective effort that balances delicately on frayed edges. Alongside solo selections, Sheff plans some Okkervil River songs with a full band. Michael Booher opens, unraveling with his own frenetic, anxious rock spirals and crushing ballads.
