Riverboat Gamblers
Riverboat Gamblers

The Midgetmen

(Thu., 10:45pm, Hotel Vegas)
Fun-loving fourpiece equally reminiscent of Dinosaur Jr. and Fidlar.

The Golden Boys

(Thu., 11:30pm, Hotel Vegas)
Spirited guitar rock outfit with four lead singers so four times as many great songs.


(Fri., 10:30pm, Holy Mountain inside)
The flagship band of Austin's experimental synth scene.

Residual Kid

(Fri., 10:45pm, Parish)
Grunged-out teenage noise-punk trio who brutalize their instruments.

Riverboat Gamblers

(Sat., 10:15pm, Red 7 outside)
Melodic punk vets known for live-wire performances where frontman Mike Wiebe invariably endangers himself.

The Octopus Project

(Sat., 11pm, Cheer Up Charlie's)
Eccentric experimenters replete with theremin, electric guitars, and electro pixilation.

Eagle Claw

(Sat., 11:45pm, Elysium)
Instrumental metal crushers.


(Sat., 12:45am, Beerland)
Orville Bateman Neeley III's hard rockers recall a mixture of BÖC and Sonic's Rendezvous Band.


(Sun., 10:30pm, Holy Mountain inside)
Dark, jarring electronic experimentalism from bass addict José Cola.
