Music in the Schools rocks Clinton St. Theater

If there's one thing kids need more of in their lives, it's music. It's a way for the younger geneation to express themselves - their angst, anguished emotions, disdain for the world they'll soon have to traverse - music is a neccessity. Yet with music programs in schools across the country steadily falling to shambles, any efforts to keep this outlet available are more than needed, and much appreciated. Music in the Schools is aiming to keep music alive for those under bar age here in Portland. MITS has teamed up with Clinton St. Theater to put on their monthly showcases, spotlighting young bands and opening them to vernal audiences.

Last night's showcase touted a four band bill with sponsorship from local all ages festival, PDX Pop Now. Opening up the night were the comically clad KULULULU. Part frenzied rock set, part lively performance art piece, dancers ran around the audience as they thrashed about on stage. Undergrads Dad Rock took the sophomore slot. They haven't even graduated high school, yet last night marked the release of their second album, Papa Defeats the Beast. It's pleasantly punky, and proof of how musical guidance at a young age can conceive greatness. 

With the second half of the night being dominated by slow rockers Sabonis and closed out by indie loves Just Lions, February's MITS installment only further ascertains the importance of keeping music open to everyone, regardless of age.

The Deli LA Premieres: new single "Motion" by dancepunk REXX

The Deli LA is proud to premiere this jagged new track from Rex Osterkamp's dancepunk-for-funsies project REXX. "Motion" cuts about an inch deeper than the bedroom slackers of his previous album I Really Tried to Save the Day, with its visceral lyricism and kick-in-the-teeth dissonance. If Osterkamp's description of 30 foot dads with Oakley shades doesn't spin you, the breakneck rhythm will make sure you're on the ground by song's end. "Motion" is the first single from REXX' upcoming yet-to-be-named cassette, slated to release on the fiercely DIY Danger Collective Records in May. - Ryan Mo

Sharks In The Deep End's First Single is New Wave Dance-Pop Goodness

Sharks In The Deep End is an Austin quintet with a uniquely developed sound that melds jilted New Wave vocals with infectious dance-pop, and they’re currently gearing up to release their debut LP Killin Machine (April 22). The first single off of that debut album is called “Shadows In The Sunset,” and it’s a smart fusion of eclectic influences that rattles along to the urgent warble of vocalist Tucker Jameson. The secret weapon of Sharks In The Deep End is the pounding punk influence that adds backbone to the pop melodies and doesn’t allow the listener to become complacent for a second. If the full Killin Machine album proves to have the same alchemy as Sharks In The Deep End’s first single, then it should be a special debut. Catch the single below, and if you see this today (February 18), you can get an eyeful of these guys at their very first show ever tonight at 8pm at Studio C.

Daniel Eyes & the Vibes Invite You to Try Some "Dessert Cocaine"

Alright, it is time for you readers to get lost...in a good way. In a "lose your mind in melodic pleasures kind of way," in fact. The ability to do that nice thing is available to you, RIGHT NOW, because a local Austin band that has only been together since 2014 has gone and done it- just last month Daniel Eyes & the Vibe’s new EP release Sweet Dreaming released a four song EP with some mathy and delicious guitar from frontman Daniel Eyes, and you can listen to it here today.

This bluesy quartet has a good home here in Austin and their new output deserves a good listen in return. Single ‘Dessert Cocaine’ off of the new EP, for instance, is a perfect example of the 80s rock, blues pop sound that these cats have to offer, though maybe it's a bit more of a flashback than some of you bargained for, putting thoughts of desserts and cocaine and “setting you free” in your brain (you heathens).

You can check them out on Spotify and Facebook for tunes and show dates, or better yet, catch them at their next show at Stubbs BBQ in downtown Austin on February 20 at 10:30 after the O.A.R. concert. Tickets are $6 in advance at www.stubbsaustin.com and will go up soon, so don’t miss out on some great Austin music and go buy your tickets early!
