Say Anything is an American rock band that formed in 2000. Within two years, they self-released two EPs, Junior Varsity and In Your Dreams. They also produced their full-length debut album Baseball: An Album by Sayanything. In 2003, Say Anything signed with Doghouse Records, and within the next year had released …Is a Real Boy.

Say Anything gained their fame with …Is a Real Boy. The band’s website quotes, “their (oddly) popular record …Is a Real Boy somehow broke the “pretty boy punk” mold by establishing a career that thrived somewhere between music your pretentious college student of an older brother would like and the loud crap that your little brother uses to annoy him with.” The record was followed up with their next album, In Defense of the Genre, which is an equally energetic and power-packed album. In 2012, Say Anything released their fourth studio album, Anarchy, My Dear, with Equal Vision Records. Their most recent album, Hebrews, is scheduled to be released in June of this year with Equal Vision Records.

As a group, Say Anything’s records have sold almost half a million copies, with even more copies of their albums being illegally downloaded. Say Anything’s website quotes, “Those listeners did however, care enough to go see Say Anything play, which allowed for them to contribute to a reliably chaotic, cathartic live experience.” Say Anything has toured with bands including Thrice, Manchester Orchestra, mewithoutYou, Saves the Day and more. Their website also states, “[Say Anything has] established themselves as one of the few bands nowadays who end up as sweaty, busted up and bruised after a show as the people who are actually watching them.”

Say Anything is kicking off their tour with The Front Bottoms, The So So Glos, and You Blew It on June 13th in Dallas, TX. Luckily for Austin, the tour is stopping in town the next day. Fans will get to experience the high energy of the band, and essentially the kick off of their tour. Everything will be in full swing!

Alain Macklovitch, better known by A-Trak, is a DJ, turntablist, record producer and owner of Fool’s Gold Records. His older brother, David Macklovitch, is a member of the band Chromeo.

A-Trak was the first DJ to win all three major DJ competition titles: Disco Mix Club (DMC), International Turntablist Federation and Vestax. A-Trak was also the first DJ to win five World Championships. At the age of 15, he won the DMC World DJ Championship, making him the youngest winner of the competition. Pitchfork Magazine stated, “In the decade since he won the 1997 DMC World DJ Championship at a prodigious 15 years of age, A-Trak has turned the art of turntablism back toward its original party-rocking focus – the dude can scratch and beat-juggle, but he’s just as skilled at maintaining momentum and crafting seamless segues.”

Later, in 2004, Kanye West recruited him as his personal tour DJ. A-Trak worked with Kanye during his performances on MTV specials, the Grammy Awards, multiple MTV Video Music Awards, and even accompanied Kanye on his worldwide tour. A-Trak also recorded scratches on Kanye’s Late Registration (2005) and Graduation (2007) albums. In addition, A-Trak collaborated with Armand Van Helden, and created a disco house production duo under the stage name Duck Sauce. Duck Sauce was very successful worldwide and attained the No.1 spot on the U.S. Dance Billboard Chart. In 2010, Duck Sauce released “Barbra Streisand,” which accumulated over 70 million views on YouTube and hit platinum heights around the globe.

Austin’s local indie folk pop band, Wild Child, is going on a national spring tour with Robert Ellis. Their debut album, Pillow Talk, was released in 2011. Currently, they are signed to The Noise Company, and recently released their second album, The Runaround. Ben Kweller, another local, helped on the production of their latest album.

Wild Child was named the best indie band and best folk band of 2013 SXSW Music Festival by the Austin Chronicle. Wild Child has been the supporting act for the John Butler Trio, which helped the band raise up to their current fame. Their song “Pillow Talk” has gained over 130,000 views on YouTube. Wild Child has made appearances on Last Call with Carson Daly, AXS Live and PBS.

Wild Child will be offering a pre-show meet and greet and acoustic performance each night before a scheduled show at a specified location or at the venue for that night’s performance. A representative from the band will reach out with further instructions and with a specific time to meet at the venue. The pre-show meet and greet costs an additional $20. Find out more here to get in on the action!

Official ACL Late Night Show: Metric W/ Polica & Half Moon Run

October 11th, 2012

Friday, October 12th

Emo’s

$25 (currently sold out)

Metric is the prime example of success in the modern day music industry atmosphere. No major record label backing, and still getting radio play, doing film scores, and playing arenas. Metric is a great mix of sound. Vocalist Emily’s voice is the centerpiece, and is framed perfectly, sometimes with sweet, sometimes with edge, by killer synths, and pounding drums. Sometimes, as especially the case with newest release Synthetica earlier this year, it’s hard to know just how to react to Metric’s music. The decision falls somewhere between rocking out, and dancing around until you dislocate a hip. They put on a great show, and seeing them in the setting of Emo’s versus a larger venue is an awesome opportunity. Take it!

Check out Metric here.

The Dandy Warhols & 1776

May 21st, 2012

Tuesday, May 22nd

Emo’s East

$16 tickets

Portland’s The Dandys have been doing their thing for quite a while now, and this is very evident upon seeing them live. They sound so near perfect, exactly as you would expect their songs to sound in your head. You may find yourself saying, “gee, the venue’s sound tonight sure is spot on,” but no, it really is them, they sound just like that no matter where you see them. This hypothesis has been tested by yours truly, and the results don’t lie, The Dandys put on nothing short of an amazing show.  New Album, This Machine, emerged this year, it’s studio release number 1o for them. It is very guitar heavy, more stripped, and has some darker trends present. The scuzz sometimes borders on punk rock, Henry Rollins may dig it, and there’s no real flow, just a cluster of songs presented as is, each with its own vibe to share. Yet still, that classic Dandy Warhols sound lives on, you can hear it somewhere in there, amongst it all, it’s instantly recognizable. An interesting, and fun to listen to, direction for the Dandys to take, and it will be a pleasure to hear what these songs do in a live setting.

Check out the new Dandy Warhols LP, This Machine, HERE.

The Black Angels W/ Wooden Shjips & Ume

December 30th, 2011

Saturday, Dec 31st

Emo’s East

$25 tickets

Doors 8pm

Let’s not beat around the bush here, basically it seems like the entire point of this little column is to constantly be a reminder that The Black Angels are amazing. Here’s another opportunity to do just that. Spend NYE blissing out in a psychedelic dream haze sequence to 3 killer bands. Ume will get the energy going for the night with their explosion of a live show, Wooden Shjips will drag you back through time to set the mood, and then of course, The Black Angels will leave you haunted, and slightly paranoid, just in time for 2012. How perfect. This is where we’ll be for the night, regardless of where you end up, have a safe, and rockin’ New Years!
