Tonight, give Sandy the middle finger and dance to the music of White Denim, Maps & Atlases, and Tiny Victories at A&R Bar. I admit, when usually friends tell me about bands, I ignore them. Finding out about a band “organically” seems to be more my jam as of late, so I, of course, am […]

Briana Henry Briana Henry On the Verge: Tiny Victories

Tiny Victories (Greg Walters and Cason Kelly) will open the Bonnaroo 365 show at A&R bar the day before all Hallow’s Eve.

Jacob Wooten, of Kobo notoriety was the man in charge of organizing the music for this year’s Independent’s Day, and I couldn’t have been happier. Sandwiched between two buildings at the Pearl Alley Stage, with […]

On the Verge: UME

Briana Henry Briana Henry On the Verge: UME

Did you catch Monday night’s episode of No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain? You probably noticed an Austin band, UME, on the travel show’s first episode of their last season. I actually spoke with the lead singer/guitar whaler/long-blonde-hair-swinging/badass Lauren Larson a few months ago before Bunbury. Yeah, I’ve slacked a bit. Sorry about it. Anyway, after […]

Show Review: The Dirty Guv’nahs at The Basement

Briana Henry Briana Henry Show Review: The Dirty Guv’nahs at The Basement

Last night, The Dirty Guv’nahs underwhelmed members of the audience at The Basement. But, I will say they were good, just not a band I would even acknowledge if they came to town again. The Dirty Guv’nahs followed hometown (not mine) favorites, The Floorwalkers. It should be noted that a generous amount of people were […]
