With the venue being on the smaller side, we expect it to be at capacity all night. To ensure entry without issue — even if we’re at capacity — we’ve made 50 VIP tickets available (you can order one or learn more about them here). Here’s the line-up and info for the show:
Wildhoney’s new EP just came out on Topshelf Records, and it’s a doozie. If you haven’t listened to it yet, or even checked them out at all, now is the time. Truly gorgeous shoegaze from Baltimore that leans heavy on the pop side.
We’re partnering up with Father/Daughter Records and heading down to Austin again this March to bring you a really great show! We think F/D is one of the best labels going right now so we’re truly thrilled to partner up with their great roster for this. Also, we’ll have free wine (courtesy of Vindie), free beer (courtesy of Wasatch Brewery and Squatters Craft Beers), free vinyl (courtesy of Gotta Groove Record Pressing) and a lot more freebies for early birds — oh, and the show is also free ^_____^! The line-up is below (we’ll have set times available closer to the date of the show) and you can RSVP, get the address and other info on our event page.
The Spook School
If you’re unfamiliar with any of the acts playing, check out the playlists we made on SoundCloud or on Spotify highlighting each of them! Lastly, this event is an unofficial SXSW showcase, so there’s no need for a badge or wristband to attend. RSVP here.
This new track from Baltimore’s Wildhoney is like being stuck in a downpour - their lovely “pop excursion” engulfing you in sweet, sweet noise and melodies. “Laura” comes from a brand new 12″ - Your Face Sideways out 10/16 through Top Shelf Records. All pre-orders give a dollar to The Trevor Project.
“Having just wrapped up a three-date mini-tour, Russian Circles played two sold-out shows at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus. Metal Insider contributing photographer Sarah Churchill was there and captured some photos and summed up the evening.
Russian Circles took a short break from working on their sixth album at GodCity Studio to play three dates with support from Wildhoney out of Baltimore and Cloakroom, hailing from Indiana. They played two sold out nights at Saint Vitus to a welcoming crowd.
I don’t know what they put in the water in Chicago but it seems most of my favorite bands come from there, Russian Circles and Shellac being at the top. Russian Circles mesmerizes the crowd with their music, which to me feels almost orchestral. Dark, moody lighting seems to fit their complex and hauntingly beautiful sound. Their sixth album is in the works and will drop some time this year. I hope with the album comes another tour, it is hard to get tired of seeing these guys play.” Metal Insider
HOLY FUCK so obsessed with this song ‘seventeen’ from Wildhoney's new 7" EP 'Over & Over’. Priests+Wildhoney played a handful of shows together on our last tour and every time they played this song I was filled with an overwhelming urge to make out like i’m in a teen movie with whoever happened to be standing next to me. And now I get to listen to it over & over and feel those feels in the comfort of my own home!
~Thank you Wildhoney for igniting a passion for upbeat shoegaze I didn’t know I had within me~
