    Hot Summer Nights w/ Daphne Tunes (midnight), Tearjerk, Sammy G, turtle pond (9:00)

    Some 2023 releases to catch live at the tiny venue on Saturday night: Turtle Pond’s debut single “Indiana” and Tearjerk’s debut EP Face to Face. Soaked in nostalgia, the former captures youthful summer nights via chiming keys and gently bellowing atmospherics. Meanwhile, misty vocals and dreamy catharsis coalesce in the latter. Rounding up a mellow lineup overflowing with soothing melodies, Sammy G wraps yearnful lyricism in acoustic strums, while Daphne Tunes closes with a warm lull of hushed indie rock.

    Hot Summer Nights w/ Fennec (DJ set) (midnight), Ruthie Craft, the Western Civilization, Ohms (8:30) [control room]

    With temperatures soaring to the hundreds daily, Hot Summer Nights-goers can find their oasis in this eclectic mix at Empire – whether you want to dance the night away with the upbeat Kaytranada-esque dance music of Fennec, or indulge indie rock anthems from the Western Civilization and Ohms. For soulful pop, Ruthie Craft is the soloist to watch out for with recent single “Nineteen.” After heating up, make sure to cool down with some water and a quick listen to Fennec’s “If U Want (My Love).”

    Hot Summer Nights w/ Nuclear Daisies, Detox, Touch Girl Apple Blossom [outside]

    Finally a band name that accurately predicts their sound. Nuclear Daisies materialized last fall with a seven song EP, issued on Portrayal of Guilt’s cottage label. The heavy, danceable dream pop carries the gooey sonic bliss of shoegaze, just enough of a trip-hop feel to play the band in a Nineties vampire movie, and Butthole Surfers-grade production effects ensuring use of strobe lights onstage. The septet, with Rob Glynn and Alex Gehring (Ringo Deathstarr) on vocals, has played sparingly, yet momentously: Oblivion Access, Levitation, and SXSW. Don’t miss Austin’s most vital, yuppie-hating hardcore punks Detox, raging after new alt quartet Touch Girl Apple Blossom.
