Bad Moon Rising

Posted by on Jan 31, 2018

Scientists across the globe noted that the second full moon of the year, and accompanying lunar eclipse, is supposed to occur tonight – or very early tomorrow morning, depending upon your location on the planet. And it’s a Blue Moon. Your Austin Music Minute maven likes to think that this mighty moon is coming out just for a select badass crew of soul suckers ready to take your eardrums down with their self-described space punk from the Lone Star State.

The AMM today referenced “spaaaace (punk) maaaaadnessss.” Ren  & Stimpy. Look it up. Then head out to see DRAKULAS tonight at Hotel Vegas, 1502 E. 6th St. The evening starts out with U.K. holla-billy (HOLLA!) roots hoodlum Serious Sam Barrett at 10:15 p.m., followed by San Francisco country-folksters Slow Motion Cowboys at 11 p.m., and Alabama haunted folk folklorists The Pine Hill Haints at 11:45 p.m.

DRAKULAS takes over half-past the witching hour. Go on and howl. This one’s very recommended.
