How far can you stretch the weekend? We’ll try for five nights while watching the Watchmen, Irepress, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Dex Romweber Duo, The Lonesome Organist, and W.W. Lowman.
Raised on an island with a penchant for all things sci-fi, Conrad Keely, frontman for post-punk band And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, believes in a great — perhaps dark — destiny for the universe. Such spiritual beliefs and philosophical ruminations heavily inform the band’s ambitious, intricate songwriting.
Our plans this weekend include local shows with the massive stoner metal of The Sword, the experimental jazz of the Umbrella Music Festival, and the raw alt-country of O’death.
And our friends in Austin have another great festival of their own, as the Fun Fun Fun Fest run on Saturday and Sunday.
With their raw energy and simple melodies, Explosions in the Sky brings us tantalizing live shows.
