Official ACL Music Festival Late Night Show: The Black Angels W/ The Joy Formidable

September 24th, 2013
Comments Off

Saturday, October 5th


Doors @ 10

$25 tickets

Austin’s own model psych-rock citizens The Black Angels never disappoint in the live show area. Those primal drums, killer maracas (yes, really), vintage guitar pedal noise-storms, spaced out bass, and shifty organ synths, it’s all just so groovy, and perfect, baby. Their lights keep getting better, and better, and it seems so does their music. Newest album Indigo Meadow is a melted-technicolor day-dream that keeps reaching into dark, strange corners. It’s just such a great listen, can keep it on repeat for ages. The Joy Formidable is also pretty fantastic. Rowdy and melodic alt-rock with front woman Ritzy Bryan’s killer vocals on full blast. A really aweome lineup for the night, especially if you’re heading over after a full day of festing at ACL.

Check out The Joy Formidable here.

Hanni El Khatib and The Black Angels, Live at the Mayan

May 22nd, 2013

With all the whistles and screams for “Hanni!” you’d have thought he was headlining this final show with the Black Angels. Los Angeles musician Hanni El Khatib brought a load of intense, bluesy rock music onstage. Unfortunately, he did encounter some technical difficulties, causing the vocals to be repeatedly crushed out and a few bouts of unpleasant feedback. Although he started strong with “Nobody Move” and “Penny,” the crowd needed some motivation to dance– El Khatib worked tirelessly to get them to groove. He continued to deliver his marvelous noise with a charming sense of recklessness, clearly wearing his own dancing shoes. Wrapping things up with perfectly with “In My Veins” and “Loved One,” he successfully worked the crowd into a frenzy, reminding them why they were cheering for him in the first place.

For round number six, The Reverberation Appreciation Society’s Austin Psych Fest took place in the gorgeous outdoor setting of Carson Creek Ranch.

The Black Angels – Indigo Meadow

April 5th, 2013


The Black Angels Phone It In

The Black Angels are a throwback band, catering to safe psychedelic nostalgia. Like a liquor-powered rendition of “White Rabbit” via live-band karaoke, there’s only so much edge and originality to be had. And though The Black Angels tend to specialize in the type of Strawberry Alarm Clock blares and Doors-esque wails they’ve come to be known and loved for, almost all of Indigo Meadow feels like the band is simply phoning it in. Opener and album namesake “Indigo Meadow” comes swirling in with spooky monster-mashed effects, filling every space between frontman Alex Maas’ militant, clipped vocals and the occasional organ break and driving drumline.
