    New Madrid
    Starts: 9:30 pm

    Description: From the southern wilds of Athens, GA comes young four-piece, New Madrid. Their music is a dynamic mixture of underwater-psych-rock that engages the listener in fully textured aural landscapes, both on record and live. Their acclaimed 2012 independent debut, Yardboat – engineered by David Barbe (Deerhunter, Drive-By Truckers) at Chase Park Transduction- displayed the band’s inherent talents and introduces a distinctive sound budding with sonic energy. In their ever-thriving music- mecca hometown, Yardboat garnered “Album of the Year,” and the band’s formula of consistent touring and creative restlessness earned them “Artist of the Year” at the Flagpole Music Awards. In the summer of 2013, New Madrid signed to local start-up Normaltown Records, and entered the studio to record what would become Sunswimmer. Their second full-length finds New Madrid further exploring depths of psychedelia and textured noise.

    In a digital age, when song snippets skip cross-country on the backs of broadband, Sunswimmer is a testament that making music for shared space still remains. With their sophomore album, New Madrid continues to redefine…

    Yo Mamas Big Fat Booty Band
    Starts: 9:00 pm

    Description: Spreading the power of funk from coast to coast
    $10 at the door

    Funk has a new spokes band, and that band is Yo Mama Big Fat Booty Band. Known for their raucous live shows and outrageous stage wear, the Booty Band’s sound is a mix of deep funk, high energy rock, plus a little old school rap and soul thrown in for good measure.

    Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band formed in 2002 and went through a few incarnations before culminating into the dynamic ensemble it is today. Mary Frances “Mama Funk” creates a sultry platform for her keyboard and keytar playing with her powerhouse vocals. Laying down the bottom is Al Al “Sweet Nasty” Ingram on bass and vocals and Derrick “Dr Ock” Johnson on trombone. JP “Smoke Machine” Miller soars on guitar, and Lee “Insta Funk” Allen drives it all forward on drums. The five-piece funk rock outfit fuels their high-energy show with original compositions, triumphant horns, laid-back grooves and heavy backbeats.

    Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band has rubbed elbows on stage with classic purveyors of the funk like Parliament Funkadelic, Galactic, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, Maceo Parker and Bootsy Collins and have ventured into new territory with modern funksters The New Mastersounds and Orgone.

    The Mondegreens
    Starts: 9:30 pm

    Description: “On their debut self-titled release, California-based four-piece the Mondegreens rely on tight three-part harmonies and vocals reminiscent of the Avett Brothers. Their style melds acoustic rhythm with sometimes fuzzy, sometimes twangy electric guitar licks. Bassist David Friedlander’s raw, soulful-meets-woeful rasp leads “Sharpen Your Claws” as heavy-blues-influenced electric riffs billow dangerously in and out of the background, while “Big City Blues” is an undemanding diddy backed by enough “oohs” and “ahs” to bring to mind a barbershop quartet. It’s not new by any means, but the Mondegreens get by on emotion alone—simple, harmony-driven emotion.”

    Spynx
    Starts: 9:30 pm

    Description: The trillest band in Texas
    This is a band you do not want to miss!
    Like queen, but with two Freddy Mercurys and also Phil Collins.
    “Excited and excitable molecular electro-pop.”
    -KEXP
    “If you haven’t already heard of Sphynx then trust us, you will. An electro pop trio that produces music impossible not to listen to, these guys are blowing up all over Austin, and beyond.”
    -The Deli
    “Sphynx is one band that is not going to slip through the pop-music scene. They yield an effortless dance-party zeal that is catchy enough to keep you moving but funky enough to keep it unpredictable.”
    -Do512
    “It’s throwback. It’s futuristic. It’s happening right now and you should be dancing.”
    -The Burning Ear

    “Sphynx brings together musical elements of punk and glam rock to create a big sound and a live experience worthy of an arena.”
    -The Horn
    “For a good time, go to a Sphynx show. This synth-pop and rock band is known for both ridiculously patterned matching pants and being able to get a crowd dancing in no time.”
    -The Daily Texan
    “With 'Pre Wild,' Sphynx have again demonstrated their ability to craft catchy dance songs and cemented their position as one of the best pop acts coming out of Austin right now.”
    -Ovrld
    “Here we've got a new breed, sharing a pedigree with Passion Pit and early MGMT…The whole thing comes together well, not too earnest, not too self-aware, the right amount of fun.”
    -My Old Kentucky Blog
    “The band does a spectacularly bouncy, bright-smiling kind of electro-pop, effortlessly… for a sound that’s one part ’80s synth-pop, one part Prince funkiness, and two parts unabashed party-rock — Recommended.”
    -Space City Rock
    “The best way to describe their sound would be if someone took Phoenix, and somehow shrunk them while making them sound better live.”
