On December 6th, 2017, the Cold War Kids returned to Austin and were greeted by a jam packed crowd at Emo's. Indie Network of Sound (INoS) was in the house ready to kick the holiday season into high gear. We were stoked to rock-out to the newly released material entitled La Divine. #INoS asked and received. The jams, super bluesy with a hype-experimental feel were way fresh. The Long Beach veterans came with a game plan to rock this town, and rock it inside out. The icing on the cake was the groovy, hip-hoppy version of "Hang me up to dry." Thank you to (aliciaarmijo.com) for the rockshots and music coverage.
On December 5th, 2017, Indie Network of Sound (INoS) hit the road and headed south to San Antonio for a much needed night of metal at the Alamo City Music Hall. This event was much anticipated. It would be our first time rockin' out with Arch Enemy. On this nite, #INoS's brains were rattled. For that we thank the metal trifecta of Fit For an Autopsy, Trivium, and headliners Arch Enemy. It was a perfectly curated evening of Heavy Metal. Fit For An Autopsy started things out on a mission to pound faces with their East Coast power. The blood was now flowing. Next up was Trivium. What can we say about Trivium that you don't already know? They kicked it into high gear and never looked back, tearing through a 60 minute set that left all in attendance exhausted from the onslaught. Yet it was Arch Enemy that was the main reason we hit the road, and thank goodness we did. We needed this metal opera of intense growling vocals. Alissa White-Gluz was engaging, beautiful, and frightening. We stood in awe as Gluz magically worked the crowd. INoS must mention what we can only describe as some of the best guitar shredders in metal. Arch Enemy brought San Antonio and INoS one of the best metal sets of the year. A metal symphony of destruction.
It's been five long years since the Indie Network of Sound (INoS) first indulged in the therapeutic sounds of ALT-J. That night was a cold SXSW surprise. Thus we were stoked for the recent 2-night reengagement at The ACL Moody Theater. The stage set-up was radical with trippy and melty lights. We remembered the mesmerizing light show from last time. This made for two perfect 90 minute sets of what can be best described as "Folktronica." INoS gives a huge shout out to the opening act, Marian Hill. They were so fresh and so clean. Electronic Music spiced up with sultry saxophone.
On night 1, INoS collaborated with ATX Photographer Alicia Armijo.
It was a definite treat for The Indie Network of Sound and Austin when Ween landed their intergalactic mothership Boognish on November 2nd and November 3rd to serenade the ATX at Stubb's Waller Creek Ampitheater. It had been seven very long years and INoS was in attendance both nights to enter #TheMollusk and rockout with their longtime friend - #Frank. We partied like Stallions and ate Pork Roll Egg and Cheese.
On October 28th, 2017, Indie Network of Sound tore it up with West Coast rockers-Bleached. It was Halloween weekend in Austin, and Bleached came prepared. Slick costumes and a surprise for all in attendance-Misfits jams added to their dark presence. This was a perfect treat. The energy was top notch. Bleached poured it on and never stopped. Blazing guitars, powerful lyrics, and great stage presence. INoS says "Keep on Keepin on." Punk rock lives!
Indie Network of Sound was stoked to have the great opportunity to rock out with The Afghan Whigs on Rocktober 24th, 2017, in Austin, at the Mohawk. INoS have been huge fans of The Afghan Whigs for nearly 30 years. On this night, a Tuesday, INoS rocked like it was a Saturday night. Nothing else mattered. Truly for 90 minutes the only thing that mattered was the music and energy created from the dedicated fans. The Whigs musically were on top of their game. Their sound-crisp and clean. A perfectly curated setlist that included all of our favorite jams. It was exactly what we needed, and early week rockout. It set the tone for a perfect week - for that we thank you.
