Austin emo legends Mineral are reunited this year, but so far the only hometown date they've had announced is Fun Fun Fun Fest. That may change tonight (8/29) though. There's a SXSW Cares (the benefit fund for victims of this year's tragedy at SXSW) benefit happening at Mohawk indoors with Jess Williamson and a headlining band called "The Parking Lot". Mineral posted this to their Facebook about the show:
Pretty excited to see this band play in Austin tonight. There's not much info on them if you google them, but we think you'll like 'em. Their name has a snappy ring to it. Not to mention it looks like they have a great taste in fonts. You should join us. #FirstComeFirstServe #SXSWCARESHmmmmm...

Local boys Spray Paint make the kind of paranoid art punk that that may have folks thinking they've got bugs under their skin -- in a good way of course. Joey Casey recently upped them in NME, helpfully adding "They've got several songs about dumpsters." The band's new album Clean Blood, Regular Acid, on September 23 via Monofonus and you can stream a track from it below.
Spray Paint just played Hotel Vegas on Friday (7/25) but if you missed it you've got a few more chances to see them in Austin. They play Beerland on August 23 with Crack Pipes; then they've got a record release show at Hotel Vegas on September 19 (rest of lineup TBA). The latter is also the kickoff date of their tour with The Rebel (Ben Wallers from Country Teasers).
Additionally, Spray Paint and The Rebel also play McAllen's Cine El Ray on September 20 and Walters Downtown in Houston on September 21 where they'll open for Merchandise (tickets). For all tour dates head to BV and check out the new song stream below...
