No time for jibber jabber! Psych-rock outfit and recent Studio 1A guest Tamarron, whose new EP Let’s Get Out officially drops today, will head out of town tomorrow for their tour. Right after a stop in Denton at Harvest House, they’ve got twelve different cities ahead through March 11th.
Of course, they start things out in their hometown with a big release show tonight at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River. Magic Rockers of Texas, The Sophies, and Angry Beige (who get extra Austin Music Minute points for their glorious Howard Moon references) share the bill. Get there around 9 p.m. to catch all the bands. Recommended.

Earlier this year, Austin-based songwriter Julian Neel released two new tracks, the breezy slow-strolling “American Bingo” (featured on today’s Austin Music Minute), and the swoony, swaying-hazey flow “Downstream.” And it’s just the beginning; more is on the way from Neel later this year.
You just may get to hear more new tracks from Neel at his show tonight at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River. The night starts out with Jana Horn at 9:30 p.m., followed by Asheville, NC artist Cowboy Crisis at 10:30 p.m. Neel goes on at 11 p.m. Do not miss out. Recommended.

Not much of a winter wonderland here in the Live Music Capital, but The Deer are headed out to slightly colder climes on their upcoming Winter Travels tour, winding through Taos, NM, several cities in Colorado, and Kansas, in support of their album Tempest and Rapture. (Today’s Austin Music Minute featured track, “Strange Resides,” is from that album.)
Before they don some serious winter gear, The Deer have a tour kickoff show tonight at The North Door, 501 Brushy St., featuring experimental math-rockers Hikes, along with folk-pop outfit Dreamboat in what will be their last performance before going on hiatus. Doors open at 8 p.m. Very recommended.

You’ll get a bit of swooning in when you hear Lex Land crooning the tunes. She’s got you covered with enchanting songs of heartache and unrequited love, and an exquisite vocal magic that works it all to perfection.
Tonight marks a special occasion for the Austin-based songwriter, who is performing music from her forthcoming album, It Will Reveal Itself, with a full band – something of a rarity for Land, as she typically performs solo. You can see her this evening at the Cactus Cafe, 24th St. and Guadalupe in the Texas Union. Doors open at 8 p.m., and songwriter Scott Collins kicks off the show at 8:30 p.m. Dreamy-dream time. Recommended.

Nothing like live music to vastly improve your Monday. The Austin Music Minute has given high praises indeed to one such event at the Hard Luck Lounge, 3526 E. 7th St. It’s the Meshed Up Mondays music series, curated for those working in the music community, as well as the music fans.
Head out to Hard Luck tonight to catch the next featured artist, Hilary York, at 8 p.m., followed by your opportunity to take over the turntables and spin your faves during BYOVinyl. Live music topped by a vinyl feast? Just the way it should be. Recommended.
