LOCAL BAND SETS THE STAGE FOR PRETTY SICK HEADLINER: DIE SPITZ & PRETTY SICK @ MOHAWK

Ashley Farnie Assistant Music Director Pretty Sick made a pit stop at Mohawk in Austin in the midst of “The Makes Me Sick” tour. Although the band was accompanied by MILLY and Mitsubishi Suicide on tour, local Austin band Die Spitz took the place of the opening act for the night’s show. When I saw on Instagram that the band I interviewed the week prior was on the bill, my […]

Levitation 2022: Psych Rock Feels So Good!

By Ashley Farnie Assistant Music Director I decided to take my weekend at Levitation easy, only driving up to Austin for Saturday and Sunday sets. I was overwhelmed with music consumption despite only attending half of the festival.

South by San Marcos: Local Lineup at SMFest 2022

Ashley Farnie Assistant Music Director   Since I moved to San Marcos in 2017 I have explored many local bands. The first show I remember was a house show for Christian Sparks & The Beatnik Bandits. (My friend interviewed the band here, check it out! https://ktswblog.net/2022/04/14/san-marcos-sounds-the-beatnik-bandits/). The Beatnik Bandits kickstarted my deep dive into local music, spanning the heart of Texas State University to Austin. Local music fans were in […]

ACL 2022: Sloppy Jane’s Haley Dahl Paints with her Personal Palette

By Ashley Farnie Assistant Music Director My disappointment in ACL’s lineup this year was resolved with the announcement of Sloppy Jane’s set scheduled for Weekend 2. I was excited to see the band on a smaller stage after seeing the band perform at Mohawk in March and the Moody Amphitheatre in May supporting Phoebe Bridgers. The intimacy allotted by festival settings allows for casual viewings of lower-profile artists. At the […]

Concert Review: Porridge Radio with Sean Henry at Parish

By Ashley Farnie Assistant Music Director After my first listen to Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder To The Sky, I knew I wanted to see the creative aesthetic album visually. Traveling from the U.K., Porridge Radio was accompanied by Sean Henry & The Valley Social Club of New York at Austin’s Parish. Sean Henry and band maintain a consistently indie rock sound of catchy rhyme schemes appealing to a young and […]
