Fresh off our first showcase earlier this month we are now teaming up with BleachOnline to bring yet another fantastic line up. The show is going down at The Parish [Map] on Thursday, June 4th. This time around we will be celebrating the release of The Morakestra's new album and opening duties will go to some familiar faces, The White White Lights, who were so awesome at our show last month we couldn't resist having them back.
The Morakestra who split their time between Austin and El Paso, Texas are preparing to release Witness To Connection on June 2nd via Stratking Records and of course it will be available at the show for purchase. The album was produced at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, TX with Gabe Gonzalez and Jim Ward (Sparta, Sleepercar) sharing production credits. Check out the track "Tell You Something" available below. After the June 4th show the band will embark on a short tour including a stop in Dallas on June 11th with fellow Austinite's The Black and White Years at the House of Blues and The Viper Room in Hollywood on June 24th.
And of course getting things started are some personal favorites around here, The White White Lights. Who in addition to playing our first showcase last month and absolutely killing it have been playing some fantastic sets around town including 101X's Homegrown Live, ATX Emerge and Art Disaster showcases at SXSW and a live set on KUT Radio. They apparently have been spending most of their time recording as of late so it will be nice to see the results of those sessions. If you missed them at our last showcase consider this your second chance.
