Power Trip at Red 7

Red 7 will be closing earlier than initially planned, closing up shop at the end of August and now all the shows that were supposed to happen at Red 7 will be moved to Sidewinder (aka the Red Eyed Fly space down the street). Reports Austin 360:

"We had kind of planned on doing a big blowout month, but once we started to get into the nitty gritty of the move out, the discussions with the two groups of people who are our landlords were getting worse and worse and worse, less friendly," Red 7 manager Tyson Swindell said Friday.

To cover their bases and ensure they were able to comply with the terms of the move out, they decided to turn the closing festivities for Red 7 into the opening celebration for Sidewinder, a new club run by a management group that includes managers of Red 7, Transmission Entertainment's Graham Williams and John Wickham from Elysium set to launch this fall. Sidewinder will take the place of Red Eyed Fly on Red River St.

Sidewinder wasn't due to open until October, which is "a little bit of a nightmare," says Red 7's Tyson Swindell but they will get it done. September shows moving to Sidewinder include the Black Lips show on 9/19.

The final show at Red 7 will now be on August 28 with Nashville Pussy, Valiant Thorr and Riverboat Gamblers (tickets) and Sidewinder opens on August 31 with Mutoid Man, Indian Handcrafts and Unmothered.

She played the BrooklynVegan day party on Saturday, and her official showcase two days earlier at The Trophy Club. Fool's Gold-signed Sammy Bananas was her DJ at both shows. Pictures from the rapper's nighttime gig at The Trophy Club are here, and there's more of them below...

Cloud Nothings @ Bar 96 - SXSW - 3/20/2015

After Palma Violets' set at the Friday night Dr. Martens and Culture Collide show at Bar 96 during SXSW, Cloud Nothings headlined and pictures of their set are in this post.

The band was as great as ever, giving us pretty much every song you'd want to hear from their last two albums. They transitioned the instrumental "Separation" into the jammed out "Pattern Walks." They gave us standout single "I'm Not Part of Me" towards the end of the set, and did their sludged-up version of "No Future/No Past" into an extended "Wasted Days" to end the show.

More pictures below...
