As usual, the calendar is full of goth, punk, metal, burlesque shows, horror movies and events! And, Austin has a few more places hosting shows. During SXSW Chess Club opened in the space formerly occupied by Plush, High Noon on Cesar Chavez is hosting shows, and yet another Moody opened up. You won’t find these places in our Entertainment section because they are multi-genre venues where you can see pretty much anything.
For you roller derby fans… first the good news. Derby is back with live bouts, and the Texas Rollergirls homecoming bout is this month. Bad news is that the Texas Roller Derby (TXRD, the bank track league) has moved out of Austin to Buda. There are only 2 bouts in Austin, all the rest are in Buda and won’t be listing any of the out-of-town bouts.
We’ll continue to review all the venue calendars and add all the goth, punk, metal and other “dark” shows worth seeing to the calendar.
Things we are looking forward to in September:
- Portion Control w/ Dread Risks and L at Elysium
- MVTANT // LLORA // Temptrix-13 at Chess Club
- Sick of it All + Agnostic Front w/ Crown of Thornz at the Parish
- The Mission UK ∙ Chameleons ∙ Theatre of Hate at Elysium
- WWDITS Night Market by Bat City Antiques and Oddities Market at the Glass Coffin
- Raven Wiped Out 40th Anniversary at the Lost Well
There’s more great things happening, of course. As always we’ll be updating the calendar weekly.
New Features Section
Check out our new Features where we have show and event recaps. So far you can see photos from and read about Nosferatu 2022, The Lost Well’s 9th Anniversary Party, Gore Noir’s 11th Anniversary Party, the Return of Metalesque, the Lightning and Thunder Tour, and more coming soon, including the Stars at Night Fest 2 featuring the Butts, Bondbreakr and Hans Gruber and the Die Hards! These are short recaps with tons of photos, not critical reviews.
In the future we plan to add interviews, and concert reviews and music reviews. Don’t send us your music for review yet! We’ll let you know when we are ready. But, if you want us to cover your show or event, shoot us a message though Facebook or Instagram.
