♫ Frank + Derol – Barely Love You Too

I was apprehensive about how these newcomers would pull off their delicate grooves but they absolutely impressed. Solid musicianship cracked up to “rock.” Songs I heard for first time sounded like instant favorites. Plus a Smashing Pumpkins cover never hurts. Catch them on tour with Wolf Gang this fall!

♫ DWNTWN – Alamo Square

I’ve seen DWNTWN a bunch this past year and this crowd was definitely the biggest dance party I’ve seen rocking out. (Well, aside from their TBE SXSW shows…) Awesome as always.

I was very unfamiliar with Wildcat! Wildcat, having only grazed through a few jams on their Facebook, but had heard good things about their residency. Damn I wish I had come out to see them earlier! These guys kill it live! Their relative laid back sound on record is exploded ten-fold in a live setting. These guys believe in their music and it didn’t take long for me to believe in it too. Look out for a proper post soon.

♫ Magic Wands – Black Magic

“Black Magic” graced the pages of TBE almost 3 years ago and Magic Wands are finally emerging! Their debut LP came out earlier this year and I was naturally excited to see their live show and how they progressed off “Black Magic.” Time to track down that Aloha Moon LP…

Brandon is obsessed with popcorn, sandwiches, and new music.
