It was Friday the 13th in Austin, Texas and Indie Network of Sound was stoked to spend the evening with Echo and the Bunnymen at the beautiful ACL Live. It was truly a treat- it's not everyday you get to see Echo and the Bunnymen in Texas-this show was not to be taken lightly. An overall, vibrant, powerhouse set to include all our Bunnymen favorites. A moment INoS will never forget-Killing Moon. It was beautiful, the band, the crowd, together singing touched the darkest part of of us all in a celebratory way. It was a packed house and in the end we all wanted the same thing-as much Echo as we could get. INoS thanks #ATX photographer Alicia Armijo for the stunning photographs.
Indie Network of Sound piled into the Barracuda Austin July 5th, 2018 for the electric sound of Snail Mail. A "sold out" crowd must've known something. Well INoS learned quickly-Snail Mail is a rising force emerging in the Indie scene. Packed with charm, talent, and the ability to enthrall a crowd-Snail Mail did what they do-rocked the house with some robust sleepy songs. INoS felt the music taking control. Front woman-Lindsey Jordan belted out some heartfelt lyrics as fans physically embraced one another- INoS says one thing-Snail Mail, unlike their name "quickly" set the tone and hypnotically delivered a beautiful message.
Indie Network of Sound entered "The Shelter" of dark synthpop on June 24th, 2018, at Barracuda Austin. Cold Cave hit the ATX bringing some serious deep rooted and seductive dark wave. The venue was pitch black with intermittent atmospheric lights. The setting was perfect for what turned out to be INoS's favorite show of June. This was a first for INoS and Cold Cave, but it won't be our last. A much needed time warp back to 1987 - a time where life was boisterous and carefree. Reminiscent of many underground gatherings we'd experienced while exploring the music scene in Detroit and Los Angeles in the 80s. One thing came to mind as we departed - #NitzerEbb.
On June 22nd, 2018, The Middle Kids from Sydney came through Austin to play a sold out show at Antone's. Indie Network of Sound was stoked for the opportunity to check them out. The buzz on the street was "these guys can rock." Let me tell you the hype is for real-they rocked the house. Middle Kids kicked out a 75 minute set of shear rockpop power. Singing songs about friendship and life experiences - the things that make a difference. Lead Singer Hannah Joy-packed with alluring charm played a slick right handed guitar upside down to accommodate her left handed needs- like many of the greats have before her. It was a therapeutic night of beautiful music for INoS. Middle Kids are a class act playing the music you need to know. INoS says-Middle Kids, "Trust Us."
June 22nd, 2018 was the crazy night that King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard slithered into town to play a sold out show at Stubb's Waller Creek. It was a hot one in Austin, Texas, but the scorching heat didn't slow The Gizzard down one bit. The fans were wild and crazy as they surfed upon each other. Others collapsed from the heat and had to be rushed out on stretchers. Full beers were launched into the air. But it was Indie Network of Sound (INoS) that understood the Texas heat and conserved our energy for the long haul. The music intravenously entered our body keeping INoS hydrated with the psych rock groove. It's better than water. The band played an intense set backed up with a trippy acid-like light show. The heat was intense-but King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard was twice as fierce. Thank you Austin Photographer-Alicia Armijo for the wild and crazy pics. It definitely sums up the antics.
Recently INoS were brought back to our childhood lessons of Rock N' Roll. We relived the memories of listening to Detroit rock radio station WRIF, and the nightly teachings of Arthur P. It was during those times that we learned of Blue Oyster Cult (BOC), and man are we glad we did. So on the evening of June 22, at the Empire Garage, we were hearkened back to the brilliance of Prog-Rock, and that of BOC. At times during the evening we thought of the hard rock Thin Lizzy and boogie woogie Boston vibe that the Long Island legends unexpectedly exuded. We were left happy to have finally caught this band that had lived in our memories for so long. Make no mistake, these guys still bring it and certainly are not merely cashing in on a name. Thank you Austin Photographer Mike Morton for the photo coverage.
June 22nd, 2018, Indie Network of Sound (INoS) entered the dark post punk world of the Rosegarden Funeral Party. A place where only one thing mattered, good times and the positive sound that makes you feel fancy and free. The groove went down in Austin, Texas, at INoS favorite spot Barracuda. It was a wonderful timewarp straight into the 80's - a total Siouxsie Sioux feel-done right. INoS says-Rosegarden Funeral Party-the band you need to know. Thank you Austin Photog-Stephen Hood for the slick photos.
June 16th, 2018, Indie Network of Sound (INoS) will call it the feel good Pre-Summer Bash at Austin's own Hotel Vegas. On this night it was all about GirlPower. Three amazing female fronted bands with one thing in common-creating superb music for a sold out crowd to groove 2. INoS was front and center getting down and taking it all in. We thank Blushing, Summer Twins, and of course the one and only La Luz for a stellar night of jams that kept us all dancing until 2am.
June 12th, 2018, It was an exciting night of psychedelic rock at Barracuda Austin in the form of Post Animal. It was an energy packed set for a crowd that was amped up and ready to roll-full force ahead. Post Animal did not disappoint - belting out a slew of sludgy magical jams that seemed to antagonize the natives. On this evening Indie Network of Sound (INoS) took it all in and was taught a valuable rock 'n roll lesson. It's all about the music and nothing will stand in the way of our rock journey. What an epiphany it twas. Thank you Post Animal-Rock on!
