    60th anniversary w/ Middle Sattre, Juliet Goldstein, Line of Fire, Mad Cowboys, Allan Gill & DJLP, Thunder People (3:00)

    In 1963, the same year news of Beatlemania and JFK’s assassination would sweep the nation, Cecil and Myrtle Meier opened Carousel Lounge in hopes of bringing a New Orleans-style dance hall to Austin. On Friday, the circus-inspired watering hole celebrates its diamond jubilee with performances by folksy eightpiece Middle Sattre, acoustic songwriter Juliet Goldstein, and resident rockabilly group the Mad Cowboys. The longstanding Windsor Park venue caters to a faithful crew of regulars and remains a friendly jumping-off place for newly formed local bands to sharpen their sound. In a town where most venues struggle to reach 5 years of age, the Lounge’s 60th birthday gives music lovers across Austin a good reason to raise their glass. – Genevieve Wood

    Body Tape, Water Damage, Emotional Maturity

    Drone music can fascinatingly fuck with your perception of time, loudness, and structure. As such, the hypnotizing effects of repetition can result in the same arrangement sounding different after five minutes. Austin ensemble Water Damage – with their face-to-face double drum kits, two basses, and assortment of buzzing strings and electronics – expertly unravels such revelations on the torrential side A of recent sophomore album 2 Songs (though they actually call their songs “reels” due to their marathonic length). The trebly, classical-bells-spiked flip “Fuck That: Reel 13,” meanwhile, emphasizes the group’s collective rhythmic ingenuity. Show takes place inside a campus-area convenience store with Body Tape and Emotional Maturity
    Fri., July 7, 8pm. Free.
