Our buddies over at Austin Town Hall will be having another one of their “Council Meeting’s” aka wild and unadulterated dance parties this Friday at The North Door. If you haven’t stopped by this dark East-side bar quite yet, you are missing out on Tamale Molly and one strong “Son of a Gun” whiskey drink. This dance party will also be celebrating DJ Ray Ray’s birthday, and it’s FREE! (Merch made the poster, recognize what the image is?)
Electric 6 have apparently played Emo’s twelve times, and I’ve seen them there 7, and all in just over 3 years. To say that Electric 6 is a touring machine is a huge understatement. But relentless touring allows them to perfect their live set (which they undoubtedly have), adopt a large following, and be supported by a slew of awesome acts (i.e. The Willowz, Bang Camaro, Local H).
Electric 6, fronted by the ridiculous Dick Valentine, bring in the type of audience you would expect in a dive bar. Everyone is three sheets to the wind and ready to rumble (There have been at least a few scuffles every time I’ve seen E6), but they friggin’ love this band.
This time around, hot off the release of Zodiac, the guys brought forth the rock with grungy guitar riffs and a great cover of The Spinners‘ “Rubberband Man.”
Announced via Facebook, award-winning freestyle emcee Eyedea of the hip hop duo Eyedea and Abilities passed away on Sunday. BC had the pleasure of interviewing him last year when Eyedea and Abilities were supporting Atmosphere on tour. Though we only spoke briefly, we remember him as being very funny and quick-witted, and an all-around nice guy, not to mention an amazing emcee. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends. He will be missed.
