With just a $7 cover fee, Lazydaze Coffeeshop hosted their "Lazy 4/20" event in their backyard lounge area, complete with an outdoor stage and other local vendors joining in the celebration.

Concert Review: Hippo Campus at Stubbs Waller Amphitheater

By Sofia Gualy Music Journalist I have been a fan of Hippo Campus since they released their 2015 EP Bashful Creatures which included a few of my favorites such as “Sophie So” and “Suicide Saturday.” Their infectious sound never bores you due to each of their songs being so unique. I needed to experience the thrill of their indie-pop excellence in person once again. This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to […]

Martian Arts Festival: Festival Review

By Clara Blankenship Music Journalist A bubble machine, dry ice smoke, colorful lights, and local music: what more could you want from a music festival?  This weekend, I got the opportunity to attend and be a part of a historical San Marcos event. Martian Arts Festival finally returned after many cancellations due to COVID, and it did not disappoint. I had an unforgettable time experiencing what I could only describe […]

We Are All Living Under Maggie Rogers’ Spell and I’m Okay With That

By Sofia GualyMusic Journalist So much waiting has been endured for indie goddess Maggie Rogers to finally release new music. On Friday, April 4th, Rogers released “That’s Where I Am,” the first single off her upcoming sophomore album, Surrender. “That’s Where I Am” is the perfect mixture of witchy elegance and the opening song of an early 2000s romantic comedy. Rogers is in graduate school at Harvard University and is […]

“It’s Charli, Baby!”: Charli XCX at Moody Theater

Avery Viers Music Journalist Despite being someone who is shamelessly intimidated by the culture of Pop Music in 2022, I found myself sitting in the TicketMaster waiting room last fall determined to acquire tickets for (what would eventually be) the best show I would attend so far this year. With this concert being my first experience with competitive ticket purchasing, I am pretty sure I blacked out for most of […]

Up close image of the band Bon Iver in a large concert venue. There is a drummer, singer playing the guitar, and another performer playing the bass behind a layered keyboard. They are each surrounded by diamond diagonal lighted blue and orange light structures. Each structure consists of individual bars of light connected at points in the air and on the ground. Above the band is a square structure with double lined orange lights. Individual lights are facing the stage between the two light beams around the square. The bottom of the photogram has many people's heads as they watch the show.

Concert Review: Bon Iver

By Clara Blankenship Music Journalist My concert bucket list is extremely long. I started it in middle school, so it fittingly features a strange assortment of artists and bands. It's ambitious, and I probably won't get to see most of the artists I have written down. However, this weekend, I was able to cross off a band that has always been at the top of my list: Bon Iver. Bon […]

Earl Sweatshirt: NBA Leather Tour

By Bandera Barter Music Journalist The mesmerizing, distorted and even static first chords of Earl Sweatshirt’s “Riot!” are released from the amplifiers as if they came straight off the best soul, jazz, or R&B record you’ve never heard. Immediately the atmosphere is changed. Moments before we were at Stubbs BBQ in Austin, Texas, a unique music venue, but still our own world. Now, we are in Earl’s. This is what […]

Spring Records You Can’t Miss

Spring also brings a plethora of new fun music from musical artists. These recent albums embody the feeling of a spring day. Big Thief’s Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You Adrienne Lenker and her band never fail to […]

I Saw Dodie Live and All I Got Was This Lousy Emotional Turmoil: Live at Emo’s Austin

By Avery Viers Local Music Journalist This one’s for the niche group of Lizzy McAlpine enthusiasts as I write my second article (back to back, no less) that she’s made an appearance in; you are seen, you are not alone. With that being said, I had the awesome opportunity to cover Dodie’s Build A Problem Tour on March 10th, and it’s probably all I will be talking about for the […]
