Meet our March 1st Homegrown Live Bands
2/4/2013 12:08:00 PM
It's been over five years since Ringo Deathstarr last played Homegrown Live. At that point they had just released their first EP and we were deeply in love with their fuzzy face melting shoegaze sound. Since then, they've released two full length albums, including last year's release "Mauve" and toured Europe, Japan and oh, yeah, went on tour supporting a little band called The Smashing Pumpkins.
Boyfrndz has captivated Austin with their rhythmic and head-bobbing noise-pop music. Joseph Raines (bass) and Scott Martin (guitar, vocals) formed the group in 2010 after their former band, We The Granada, ended. 2012 was a busy year for the band, releasing a five track album “And So it Goes…” in February and a full length album “All Day Pass” in September which gained the attention of Pitchfork. Currently they're teaming up once again with Mars Volta's keyboardist Ikey Owens to produce their newest release due out later this year. Tonight you'll see Owens in action as he joins the band during this set.
Tiger Waves was born from determined songwriters James Marshall, who was in Austin, and Reid Comstock, who was in Chicago. These long-distance writers sent emails with attachments to share their work. After Comstock moved to Austin the band grew, adding Tyler Wharen, Kevin Brown and PJ Theberge to the group. Since then, these guys have been playing their perky summer sounds at venues all around the United States. Tonight we welcome them back from their latest tour.
Obscured By Echos
Obscured by Echoes is an Austin-based psychedelic rock-and-roll band that consists of five members: Johnny Flores, singer and songwriter; Aly Beaujon, keyboardist; Kyle Abrams, guitarist; Gary Delgado, bassist and backup vocalist and Kevin Harry, drummer . Beaujon joined the band in 2010 and has changed the group’s sound by adding electronic and psychedelic elements that better define the band. The band formerly known as The Hi-Tones has had numerous line-up changes but the band has found its niche and has released an LP in 2011 and an album “Black Matter Manifesto” October 2012 which just recieved a 3 star review by The Austin Chronicle.
