Feuding Fathers (Austin & San Antonio, Texas) [Wednesday, March 14, 4:00pm]
Feuding Fathers are an eclectic trio from two cities that have become Texas indie music’s heart of experimentation. What at first sounds like a half-baked melange of words and music, becomes an engaging art of sound in recordings and live performances.
Experience the experimental rock sounds of Feuding Fathers on bandcamp, and live at Bernadette’s on day two of Indie Radio Rocks The World 2.
Thee Attacks (Copenhagen, Denmark) [Wednesday, March 14, 3:20pm]
After successfully overtaking crowds at last year’s SXSW, the 60s garage rock inspired Thee Attacks return to Austin. The popular Denmark band’s music has been featured in the movie Jensen & Jensen and on national radio and TV, and their debut album That’s Mister Attack To You (Crunchy Frog Records) and new music demand to be heard and supported with another round of live performances in America.
Get slayed by the melodic riffs of Thee Attacks at Bernadette’s on the afternoon of day two of Indie Radio Rocks The World 2.
The alt-country indie band featuring songwriting and singing duo Rich Russell and Landry McMeans were wonderful performers last year, and we welcome The Lonesome Heroes back after a year of touring and live performances in town that have wooed many more lifetime fans.
Don’t miss the cosmic country songs of The Lonesome Heroes at Bernadette’s on Tuesday, March 13, 3:20pm.
Georgette (Austin, TX) [Tuesday, March 13, 2:40pm]
The band’s name implies a fabric of lightweight sheerness, but the sound of Austin indie ensemble Georgette brings a weighted songwriting and musicianship tapestry of folk, jazz, and popular music to the stage and studio. Formed when singer/songwriter Natasha Dahanayake met local musicians Jesse Chan and Ellen Murray, Georgette soon included Catie Johnson, and a few other talented supporting musicians featured in live performances and recordings.
Before they grace Bernadette’s with a performance at Indie Radio Rocks The World 2 on Tuesday, March 13 (2:40pm), listen to Georgette live at West By West Campus, Saturday, February 25, Eden House stage, 9pm.
The Houston and Galveston, Texas based “gonzo” garage rockers flock to Austin during SXSW again for an Indie Radio Rocks The World performance, and we couldn’t be more pleased. The seemingly slacker/effortless band’s Texas psychedelic and surf rock influences are evident, but the band takes a slyly experimental, smart rock approach to songwriting that makes them a Houston indie music treasure.
Updates with news of their other shows in March will be posted soon.
The Escatones Bare All For The Love of Psychedelic Surf Rock
The photo is a rarity and a bit of an inside joke, because The Escatones (Houston via Galveston, TX and Detroit, MI) are known for an undressed sense of expression on stage, as well as donning house dresses. But they are becoming even better known for their expressive garage rock that blends psychedelic and surf styles.
Hear The Escatones (and see what they may or may not be wearing) on Wednesday afternoon at Bernadette’s.
