Tonight: The Kills, The Horrors and The Magic Wands at Emo's


Allison Mosshart of The Kills was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday night in Denver. Apparently a combination of the altitude and a bad cold caused her to have shortness of breath and she was forced to leave the show. She was released from the hospital and plans to go on with the tour. Which leads us up to tonight where they make their return to Austin.


Hopefully she has had some time to recoup and the warm Texas weather will do her some good. The band is joined by The Horrors who recently ditched the style that was bringing the dreaded UK "Next Big Thing" hype and recorded a fantastic new album (mostly in the dark). I listened to Primary Colours last night in it's entirety and it is a phenomenal album. It will be in stores May 5th.

And get there early because Nashville duo the Magic Wands will be opening. They recently released their debut EP Magic, Love & Dreams with what has been called "wall of white guitars" and "unapologetic cosmic pop". We don't know what that means but it sounds good. Give the the lead single "Black Magic" a listen. [The Magic Wands - Black Magic]
