Florence and the Machine

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

Another great English girl with soul, this one isn’t as fucked up as some and not as poppy as others. Her new album Lungs is out in Europe and all over the blogs. Hopefully this one will last and continue to pump out her brand of Soul infused rock.

Another Time, Another Place….. Ghostland Observatory’s Aaron Behrens is playing a solo set Tuesday July 21 @ Beauty Bar Austin

Monday, July 20th, 2009


I caught Aaron walking into Beauty Bar last night by chance before his set, asked him what we were going to expect from him and was told we were in store for an acoustic country/blues set of tracks he loves to sing but doesn’t always get to play live. Talking to Aaron you realize he’s not just the Ghostland Observatory Electro-Rocker but he’s a Texan and country. Born in San Saba his rural roots are deep and for all of us Texas natives we too share a part of us that enjoys simple sometimes emotional folk music on some level. He’s a very talented vocalist and showed his range through about an eight song set of tracks that first perplexed then engaged a crowded Beauty Bar lounge. Many folks like myself were not sure what we were walking into but all left very happy we made a very rare solo show by Austin’s most loved frontman. A major shift from Whitewater Amphitheater’s laser electro Ghostland Weekend fest of only a few days prior. But that’s also Ghostland Observatory, Aaron and Thomas are down to Earth normal family men. We only usually see them as their onstage personas. Show was great see for yourself…

Still recovering from this weekend’s Ghostland New Braunfels Fest? Well buck up and get to Beauty Bar Tuesday for Aaron’s solo set. Should be interesting to say the least. I don’t have any other details about if he has new material or what but I’ll try to add a review to this post as an update.

Dos Equis XX Castle Party – Z-Trip – Rediculous

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

If you were lucky like me and were in the last herd to be let in, or snuck through the woods and barbwire (my friend was punctured) that party was really good times. Sorry to all of those who showed up early, were told to “wait” and then told to leave that’s bullshit and poor management. However for everyone else who made it we had a great time, a fucking castle first of all and then plenty of XX, food, waterslide, ninjas, Z-Trip, Bungee trampoline thing, and I ate worms and a grasshopper. Definitely the best Wednesday night that I can remember in a while.
