Bosque Brown
| Tre Orsi | Sabra Laval (Majestic Dwelling of Doom): Very solid lineup at one of the most consistent DIY spaces in the area over the past couple of years. Say what you want about Bosque Brown's latest record, but I've always thought they were one of the few truly solid indie folk groups in the area. Tre Orsi's national profile has also just increased quite a bit thanks to their inclusion in Matador's mostly Austin compilation Casual Victim Pile. And this is no way directed at Tre Orsi's music, but man-- is that the best Austin has to offer these days? This mostly brainless lifestyle garage music? I've said it before and I'll say it again-- Denton has more solid bands that Austin right now. Hands down, actually.

(Dan's Silverleaf): Congratulations to Day Bow Bow who are celebrating their one year anniversary. This all day show is celebrating said anniversary with performances from some of the bands the site has championed throughout its existence.


Corporate Park/Naxat/Darktown Strutters/The Black Dots/Akkolyte/PVC Street Gang/Drug Mountain/Nervous Curtains (The Kessler Theater): This is a fundraiser for The Great Tyrant's Tommy Atkins. The show begins at 4pm and is $10. We will update with more info as it is available.

The Clientele/Vetiver/This Old House (Granada): The Clientele are a band we interviewed here several years ago, back when they were getting ready to play in front of about 30 people at Hailey's. Now they're headlining the much larger Granada Theater after several very consistent and enjoyable records. I still don't think anything touches "Suburban Light," their early singles compilation, but that's only because its one of my favorite records of the past ten years or so. Highly recommended.

Lesile and the Ly's | Christopher the Concord (Hailey's)
