David Shabani at The Ballroom

It’s WINNING times three tomorrow night, Friday Feb. 11 at The Ballroom, 2906 Fruth St. For Spite delivers an all-ATX , all-badass line-up:

  • Put aside any definitions or expectations reserved for hip-hop. David Shabani is here to blow it up and reshape it for the collective fearlessness. “Doin’ Better,” today’s featured AMM track, is from Shabani’s Smooth Sounds of the Summer.
  • Nineties funk-rock and contemporary hip-hop meet at the crossroads. The Dragon Berries are there when those worlds collide and collaborate. As KUTX’s Jack Anderson observes, “…the mashup genre of rap-rock can be a treacherous territory to navigate. That said, [this] Austin four-piece seems to have hit a stride in the hip-hop-meets-alt-rock field…”
  • Genre-bending, crushing, mutilating and annihilating is the fuel that ignites Austin trio Blynd Birds. Get a hold of the LP Find Your Conscience, Baby and feel your jaw drop in awe over the list of producers on that white-hot striking iron – from Adrian Quesada to Jim Eno to Mobley, and many more. Cuts through the bone and the B.S.

Doors at The Ballroom open at 8 p.m. Get there early to catch all three.
