Twin Shadow After Show with Orthy + Politics | Sept 14th at The Mohawk

Twin Shadow will be doing a two night stand at The Mohawk on September 14th and 15th. If you were lucky enough to get tickets to the SOLD OUT first night you should really stick around for the after show inside. Immediately following the show outside two of Austin's most promising groups will keep the party going. Orthy have been making waves all year with a profile in Interview Magazine and a slot at this years Fun Fun Fun Fest. Meanwhile, Politics, have had a busy year playing their first festival, numerous SXSW appearances and a Good Music Club taping.  A line up like this is rare and this show is seriously not to be missed. Your Twin Shadow ticket gets you in for free, but if you didn't get a ticket to the show don't panic. Doors for the show Inside open at 11pm and are only $5.


Orthy makes the kind of music you can’t help but fall in love with. A native of Austin, the singer and multi-instrumentalist continues a rich lineage of adventurous music that has long emanated from the Texan capital. Orthy’s singular brand of celestial pop isat once playful and profound, exuberant and exhilarating. On hisstunning debut, 'Sueños', he channels everything from Bowie to Eno to Tom Petty with aplomb.


"Politics is defined as a process by which groups of people make collective decisions. For members Steven, Patrick, Robert, and Michael the decision was simple, make music that defines them and their reality. The sounds are dark, riveting, and lush yet somehow vaguely familiar. The strings transition from lovely chimes to thick, aggressive leads in an instant. The rhythm section pulses like clockwork and above it all, haunting and soulful vocal expressions. Politics harmonize together to create melodies that invoke emotions such as longing, desire, hope, and intrigue."
