Oklahoma City punks, Red City Radio, played at Austin's Red 7 on Friday October 10th to a small but rowdy crowd. Openers Threes Away and Direct Hit! were some of the most solid openers I had seen in a while. Check out photos of Red City Radio in the comments.

A festival in it's first year is always full of surprises, good and bad, and Float Fest, held outside of San Marcos, Texas was no exception. The inaugural event was preceded by permit issues and resident concerns before the music even started as it was held in a rural stretch of the Texas Hill Country on the San Marcos river. Float Fest was headlined by indie pop gods Grouplove, Houston legend Bun B, and the ever dreamy Portugal. The Man, and included numerous local support acts.
The small crowd ate up their opening song that consisted entirely of screaming the word WHISKEY over and over. I even got to watch a girl vomit from her constant jumping. The band itself is nothing but...

Riot Fest Chicago is around the corner, and all the punks are dancing in their pants. But what is it about Riot Fest that has set it apart from the rest of the festival scene? Is there something other fests are missing? (Spoiler alert: YES). Check out my two-cents in the replies. Tickets are still available, but you only have a few days until the party starts.

Jake Denning on 07/25/14 - 04:16 AM
If there is one thing I love in Austin, it's going to punk shows. The crowds are always some of the coolest people with the craziest stories. July 16th was no exception, especially with Lower Class Brats and The Applicators, The Casualties filled Red 7 with killer energy.
Formed in 1990, The Casualties took the stage with less umph than Iíve seen before but I think itís because they were lacked the mohawk of frontman Jorge Herrera. The band tore through song after song of their enormous catalog, most of which is hardcore punk- so hardcore to the point that I canít always understand whatís being said.
