September 10th, 2019-English rock trio-Band of Skulls stopped off in Austin to promote their latest release, Love is all you love. The packed house at Mohawk was blessed with a 19-song set featuring some of our favorite new and old school morsels - with Light of the Morning being a definite INoS highlight. If there was a roof at Mohawk-it would’ve been blown straight off from the sheer volume. At moments INoS picked up on a Led Zeppelin like nostalgic sound infused with a modern psychedelic twist. A definite unique sound that left a memorable impression. It was a wonderful night of music and for that we say thank you.
August 27th, 2019-Los Angeles stoner rockers Nebula returned to Austin, after a 10 year hiatus. INoS can assure you they haven’t lost a step. It was a night of Eddie Glass and his blistering guitar licks that left your ears buzzing. The heavy psych sound ripped through the souls of all in attendance. An honorable mention to Sasquatch and Tia Carrera for kicking things off with some bad ass rock n’ roll. INoS thanks The Lost Well for bringing this tri-fecta of a Psyche rock show to the ATX.
August 25th, 2019-INoS titles this performance “The feel good soul revue.” A special thanks to the Black Pumas for bringing Austin three wonderful nights of sold out shows at the Mohawk. On the third and final night , all in attendance danced the night away to some groovy rock n’ soul jams. All the necessary components were present-soul, blues, and classic rock n’ roll. Even if you didn’t know the words to the songs-you still found yourself singing along. It was the perfect way to close out a killer weekend of music. INoS says-So fresh and so clean. The Black Pumas are truly representing the ATX.
August 12th, 2019-The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Sean Lennon and Les Claypool stopped off in Austin, Texas, to spread some love with a little help from their friends. INoS walked into Emo’s expecting a lot from both veterans, and what we received was nothing short of excellence. Let’s just say Beatles #2020 with Les Claypool on bass. It was what you’d call a master class. Excellence in rock n’ roll with a side of melty and groovy.
July 20th, 2019 - Hometown favorites - A Giant Dog did what they always do, DESTROY. It was an in your face kind of rock n’ roll party at Barracuda Austin that filled our heart and soul with such emotion-it was that good. Energy driven rock jams led by Lead Vocalist Sabrina Ellis and Guitarist Andrew Cashen’s extreme shredding. On this night Sabrina dawned the “panties” across the face look-and it worked. For those who love to rock-we command you to experience A Giant Dog.
July 21st, 2019-Mike Krol stopped off in Austin, Texas at Barracuda to set the record straight. Rock n’ roll safety was the message for the night. Short and sweet-but so damn complete. A full on-50 minute set. Dedicated fans lined the stage shrieking for their favorite jams. INoS kicked back to take in the rock n’ roll spectacle. It was a pure classic sound-reminiscent at times of The Clash, The Who, Cheap Trick, and all the things that make rock music beautiful. This was just what the doctor ordered-music therapy. INoS says-Mike Krol.
June 21st, 2019, INoS grooved out at Barracuda Austin to a fun post-punk set delivered by DC quartet Priests. This was not our first rodeo, we previously enjoyed two killer sets during SXSW 2019 and patiently awaited their return. On this night Austin was fortunate to get a taste of their newly released album-The Seduction of Kansas. The music was top notch, the energy invigorating, and INoS dug how the members switched up their roles playing different instruments throughout, this should not be taken lightly. Priests are fun, talented, and a rising force in the indie music scene.

June 7th, 2019, Night Drive returned home to synth out Austin at INoS favorite Barracuda. Music fans climbed aboard for a cinematic space oddity music tour landing in 1986. The electronic groove was reminiscent of New Order, Bryan Ferry, and OMD. This made for one great night of music. Music can heal and Night Drive has the remedy y’all need.
2019 Memorable Moments
What a perfect way to end the month of May for Austin and INoS - Two nights with the mighty Judas Priest. On May 28th & May 29th at our favorite venue, ACL Live, the Priest reigned supreme. This was a gathering of loyal metal fans saluting the legendary band that is Judas Priest. With a library stemming back 44 years, it was two nights of nostalgia, rock n’ roll, and straight up classic metal. Their 18 song set featured INoS favorites - Victim of Changes, Tyrant, Judas Rising, and so many more. Finally, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the eclectic costume choices of rock god Halford. To sum it all up let us quote the great Rob Halford, “Judas F’in Priest.”

April 24th, 2019, Church was in session in Austin at Come and Take it Live. Classic Metal Rockers Metal Church delivered a god-fearing, beyond the black performance. INoS was front and center as MC kicked out a 90-minute set that sent shivers down our spines. We thank you for delivering our favorite metal anthems. Badlands and Watch the Children Pray never sounded better. Metal Church are definitely keeping things real.
