Friday, December 2nd
The Front Bottoms | 7:00pm | Emo’s
Don’t miss The Front Bottoms this Friday at Emo’s. The Front Bottoms are described as a “folk-punk band.” Such a genre seems niche in 2021, with many bands choosing to separate themselves deep into the indie folk scene or as hard core aligned with punk and metal sounds. Grab tickets here.
Urban Heat | 9:00pm | Hotel Vegas
Check out Austin’s own Urban Heat this Friday evening at Hotel Vegas. Urban Heat are a 3-piece American post-punk band from Austin, TX. Their sound fuses dark 80’s stylings with modern flourishes, with Jonathan Horstmann’s throaty baritone delivering musings on existence and romanticism against an unrelenting industrial gothic pulse. Grab tickets here or pay at the door.
