Shivery Shakes were sewn together by escapism and happenstance after years of playing together in the local Austin music scene. Their first releases in 2012 and 2013 were summery pop manifestos on how to party like a beach bum even if you’re landlocked. They broadened their horizons and tightened up their sparkly melodies for their 2015 debut LP Three Waves and a Shake. After extensive touring of Three Waves, the band wanted to expand their sound further, exploring fuzzier hooks and darker themes. A year and a half of evolving new songs and sounds lead to two years in the studio crafting a new album, Weird Weather. The new full-length effort brandishes the same level of musical sensibility, while exploring depths that are as haunting as they are inviting.

Shivery Shakes stopped by Studio 1A on September 17, ahead of the release of their new record Weird Weather, out September 20 on Austin Town Hall Records. Listen to and watch the full session below.

David Beck’s Tejano Weekend 9.16.19

Posted by on Sep 18, 2019

The summer of 2017 found Texas native David Beck lost and looking for inspiration; an impromptu house party was where it all changed. There on the big screen TV, volume on full blast, was Selena and her band shaking the Astrodome with a sound that resonated and caused a chain reaction inside. He was instantly captivated and knew his next move. He began devouring Tejano music, one of the soundtracks of his birthplace San Marcos, Texas. This quickly led to writing and recording Tejano-inspired music, and naturally began playing shows. Gathering up friends, he quickly had a band: blazing accordion, shimmering keys, cranked guitars, upright bass and drums. The sound he’s created is traditional Tejano sung in English. Every song is a dance track, every show a party focused on friends, family, and bringing the two together.
David is no stranger to the stage; he took his previous bands Sons of Fathers and Blue Healer from The Grand Ole Opry to Bonnaroo and from Gruene Hall to Austin City Limits. This latest incarnation of his art will surely leave fans with limp legs and happy hearts.

David Beck’s Tejano Weekend stopped by Studio 1A on September 16 ahead of their debut album, Tejano Weekend Vol. 1, out September 27 with a release show the same day at Cheatham St. Warehouse in San Marcos.  Listen to the full performance below.

A stalwart of the Austin music scene since their inception in 2003, What Made Milwaukee Famous have pushed the boundaries of genre with a sound that evolves with each subsequent record.

Born in 1948 in Memphis, Tennessee, Soul Man Sam lives up to the legendary city’s self-proclaimed title: “Home of Blues, Soul, and Rock n’ Roll”. Developing his vocal talent in church and honing his craft at bars on the legendary Beale Street, Soul Man Sam rapidly became a force to be reckoned with. After moving to Austin for his wife’s job in 2011, Soul Man Sam was enthusiastically embraced by the Austin community, regularly performing at landmark venues such as Antone’s, C-Boys and the Continental Club.

Currently, Soul Man Sam and the SMS Band are gearing up to play the legendary Eastside Kings Fest, and stopped by Studio1A to give us a sneak peek! Listen to the live performance below, and make sure to catch their festival set at Full Circle Bar on Saturday, 9/14 at 7 PM.

When creating their latest album,  Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough?,  sibling duo Jessie and Jennifer Clavin wrote from a place of sobriety for the first time. With a newfound sense of strength and bravery in the light of facing addiction and letting go of the past, the resulting sound was one of courage, honesty, and sonic ambition. Produced with Shane Stoneback (Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells), Bleached pushed the boundaries of their soundscape in exciting new ways while continuing to keep their signature sharp songwriting and melodies at the forefront.

Bleached stopped by Studio 1A before their show at Barracuda on September 9th. Watch and listen to the live performance below.
