Lucky You: Wiretree CD Release Party

 

Luck by Wiretree officially debuts on the 20th, but they're ready to celebrate with you this Saturday at - where else? - Lucky Lounge. Luck also happens to be our CD of the Month (review at lower right), so we, obviously, recommend that you check that one out.

In other local Saturday night goings on, New Roman Times & Stereo Is A Lie will occupy the newly reborn Ghost Room, which was the Ginger Man until the Ginger Man moved elsewhere.

The entire Deli Austin editorial staff will be off in Portland, and expecting M. Ward to stand for drinks.

Poll Heats Up: Tiny Tin Hearts vs. Quiet Company

 

Reaching the end of our early October poll, and it's definitely too close to call at this point. The Tiny Tin Hearts are making a late run at Quiet Company, and The Laughing (above, and also to be found tonight at Red 7) lurk not too far back (rope-a-dope strategy). They're also one of two poll bands dropping an album today: the Red 7 gig is a release party for The Laughing's LP Fever, and Rocket, from the Darling New Neighbors, goes national today. (Hand-crafted versions, the work of Adam Young and Jaime Cervantes, have been in the hippest hands in Austin since September.) You've got until midnight tonight (Thurs.) to get your vote in...

White Rhino Gives it to Ghandi

 

We mixed it up a little for our new batch of questions with recent poll winner White Rhino, and hit them with all hypotheticals. The Rhino wasted no time and pulled no punches (they have a tour to get to). They'll be at the Mohawk this Friday the 16th, where you can ask 'em yourself why they have no patience for Ghandi. Then they're off to terrify the Southwest throughout October, and back for a Halloween gig at Creekside. Here are five straight shots of White Rhino:

1. If you could get one local guest star on your next album, who would you pick?

ERIKA BARTON FROM THE FACELESS WEREWOLVES. OWW!

2. Give up coffee or give up beer?

I DON'T NEED EITHER CAUSE WE'VE GOT WHISKY

3. You can travel back to 1955 and teach a local band one song: what do you teach them?

HOT FOR TEACHER.

4. Ghandi comes to you in a dream, and says, hey, explain your music to me, what’s the point of it. What do you say?

FUCK YOU GHANDI.

5. What’s the best thing you could possibly hear from someone who just saw one of your shows?

MY TWIN SISTER AND I WANT TO PARTY WITH YOU AFTER THE SHOW.

 Sad Accordions

Some local accordions are, we presume, slightly less Sad this month, as they are now reigning up top as our current Artist of the Month. They fought off some ferocious challenges from SuperLiteBike and New Roman Times, and have emerged shiny and victorious. So big, capital C Congrats to Sad Accordions!

...and may I now direct your attention to the current poll, already in progress, featuring: Darling New Neighbors, Quiet Company, The Laughing, The Summer Wardrobe, and The Tiny Tin Hearts. Get yer vote in!
