I consider myself to be an avid fan of music. I research exciting new bands, I buy tons of music, whether it be digital or hard copy, and I love to go out and see live music. Fortunately here in Austin, the live music capital of the world, there is no shortage of bands that I would like to check out. The month of September does not disappoint on the live music front.
Here are a few of the shows I am excited about this month.
Sept. 8th: Woodgrain at the Parlor. (all-instrumental heavy outfit)
Sept. 12th: Las Damas at Hot Mama's Espresso. (this is my band, so i'd better show up!)
The Whigs and Tokyo Police Club at Emo's (The Whigs rule!)
Sept. 13th: Dr. Dog at the Parish. (Takes you back to a simpler time)
Sept. 20th: Pinback at the Mohawk. (Mellow math rock)
Sept. 21st: Ani DiFranco at Stubbs. (an old favorite)
Sept. 24th: Stereolab and Atlas Sound at La Zona Rosa
Sept. 25th: Summer Wardrobe, The Breathers and Tribella at Lovejoys.
Sept. 27th: Tribella and Girl in a Coma at Fitzgerald's in Houston.
Sept. 28th: ACL Fest and Conor Oberst at La Zona Rosa.
