All Glammed Up

Posted by on Feb 24, 2020

Things just went from a greasy order of fries on the side to a slightly healthier but manic/maniacal salad-centric leafy green feast. All the foods. In yer face. Care for a salad, or are you too pallid?

It’s endless waves of mad love for ATX artists as the Austin Music Minute celebrates Love Austin Music Month. KUTX shows much love for Austin artists all year round, but at this time of year, we team up with the City of Austin Music and Entertainment Division and the Austin Music Foundation for a special citywide campaign reminding all to amp up that local support. Buy the music, buy the merch, and go to shows.

On today’s AMM, we get a tad batty with glam punk outfit Lord Friday the 13th – whom you may have seen climbing the rafters at this past weekend’s ABGB show…figuratively and literally, mind you. Siblings Felix Lenz (vocals) and Sloan Lenz (guitar) made their Nashville debut with the band last week at The East Room, and they journey back to Ireland this week to record new music.

But first, Lord Friday the 13th rattles the hometown turf tonight at Hotel Vegas, 1501 E. 6th St., on a bill featuring Sadie and The Ladies and Mad Rant. Doors at 9 p.m., and the music kicks off around 10:15 p.m. Dooo eeet.

You’ve heard frequent mention of Love Austin Music Month on KUTX, which includes the Austin Music Minute, of course. But it’s with good reason; this is a month-long friendly reminder for Austin music lovers to support local artists.

A huge part of showing that love is buying the music your favorite artists create. That is the very essence of what will keep a scene not only thriving but growing. And it’s gotta keep growing if we’re going to call ourselves the Live Music Capital of the World, right? All – the – YES.

Here’s another in an endless array of opportunities for you to invest in awesome music. Major AMM fave Lo Country celebrates the release of their latest, Drip Castle, with a show tonight at Stay Gold, 1910 E. Cesar Chavez. Your AMM host was hooked the moment “Black Cloud” (heard on today’s AMM) made its presence known. Join the party this evening, with sets by two more AMM faves Rattlesnake Milk and Will Courtney and The Wild Bunch.

Doors at 8 p.m. It is well worth your time to arrive early to see all three performances. So recommended.

No time for shrinking violets or a quiet evening in. Today’s Austin Music Minute during Love Austin Music Month is unleashing the punk whirlwind of ATX dynamic duo (and AMM fave) The Blowies.

Tucker Jameson and Samuel Thompson are igniting the scene with single releases, and they have another one on the loose, the electrifying no-holds-barred “AK,” featured on today’s AMM. There’s a big release show tonight at Barracuda, 611 E. 7th St., with an awesome line-up that includes Zettajoule, Saint Lo Gun and Unpopular. Doors at 8 p.m. for this all-ages show. Very recommended.

Love Austin Music Month, presented in partnership with the City of Austin Music and Entertainment Division, the Austin Music Foundation and KUTX 98.9, is a month-long friendly reminder to support our local musicians. And of course, that includes going to shows! This is where your friendly neighborhood AMM steps in to present today’s recommendation, world jazz ensemble Atlas Maior, bringing a superb mix of progressive jazz, harmonies and melodies with Middle Eastern, Latin American and Indian sounds.

Don’t miss Atlas Maior’s performance this Thursday night at Stay Gold, 1910 E. Cesar Chavez. The show kicks off at 10 p.m. It’s the perfect spot for an intimate performance by endlessly unique band of collaborators. Very recommended.
