Spray Paint

Gloriously tense noise rock trio Spray Paint releases 2nd LP of 2015: "Dopers"

The world of music lovers is divided in two categories: those who love pretty songs, and those who seek aural insanity. For the latter, we recommend Spray Paint, an Austin based trio whose sole purpose seems to be creating the most relentlessly tense music conceivable - edgy stuff! The group is also very prolific, having released five LPs in total, two this year alone, the latter (entitled "Doper") while touring the US. Fully dedicated to the cause, that's how you find your audience.

Spray Paint LP Release Show

Clean Blood, Regular Acid is the latest release from Austin trio Spray Paint. These guys – guitarists/vocalists Cory Plump and George Dishner and drummer Chris Stephenson - play grimy indie-rock with a spasmodic punk flair. The surf riffs and frantic shouty choruses pretty much equal a party. They deliver it all in such a nonchalant Sonic Youth inspired way, you might not even realize how hard they rock. Go check them out before they go on tour with their Monofonus Press labelmate, The Rebel. Hotel Vegas LP release show this Friday, Sept. 19 at 9 p.m. -Allison Mayoral

Clean Blood, Regular Acid is due out Sep. 23 on Monofonus Press

   

Free Week End

They say all good things must come to an end.  (We don't really believe that, but for the sake of putting a metaphysical slant to a post, we'll claim allegiance.)  And, sorry to say, Free Week is no exception.  Waah.

But instead of bawling, let's go out with a BANG.  For tonight, we recommend going Holy Mountain or Red 7 -

Zorch, The Boxing Lesson, Boyfrndz, Tiger Waves, and Residual Kid will be doing the free thing at Holy Mountain tonight. 

And right next door at Red 7, on the inside you can find Troller, Marriage, The Sour Notes, Wet Lungs, and Spray Paint; whilest the outside stage will be taken over by White Walls, Cheap Curls, The Well, and Holy Wave.  

Saturday, we'd go:

The Mohawk has a huge going-out-of-Free-Week show with the outside stage hosting Silent Diane, FEATHERS, BOAN, and Rare Species.  Inside, we'll have The Sour Notes, The Couch, Shivery Shakes, Letting Up Despite Great Faults, and The Plastic Habit.

And Red 7 will host TV Torso, Oh No Oh My, Hundred Visions, and Tiger Waves

Last and definitely not least, you could scoot over to Club DeVille and catch Oh Look OutFriday Avenue, (one of our best of 2012) BorrisokaneKnifight, and Hydra Melody on the outside stage, whilest inside you can see Pop Pistol and Migrant Kids.
