Sacrificial Chumpsucker Diatribe

 

Taking a cue from the old school Butthole Surfers' titling playbook (Independent Worm Saloon, Locust Abortion Technician), our recent poll winners Sad Accordions have released unto the masses their new track, Sacrificial Chumpsucker Diatribe. If you've been paying attention, you know where they'll be tonight. If you've been napping, well, scroll down.

Tiny Tin Champs + New Poll + New Releases

In case you hadn't noticed that large crowd of multi-instrumentalists occupying our top banner, allow me to call your attention to our most recent poll winner The Tiny Tin Hearts. Huzzah, kudos, and all manner of seriously outdated congratulatory terms to them. Tiny Tin Hearts will be at Lambert's fine fancy BBQ this Saturday the 24th.

And, as usually tends to happen after a poll victory, we got us a new poll: Death Is Not a Joyride, Single Frame, The Boxing Lesson, The Lovely Sparrows, and When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth have all been nominated for your consideration.

In other developments, Luck, our CD of the month from Wiretree, drops today, and is joined by Fits, the new one from White Denim.

Peoplefood, Sad Accordions, Red Leaves will be up at 10, 11, and midnight, respectively, at the Mohawk this Wednesday. A trio of acclaimed Austin bands and Deli darlins.

So there. M. Ward never bought us a drink in Portland, so that's a drink he owes us. If he feels that either the fact that A) we don't know him or B) we never actually asked him for a drink is a legitimate excuse for this oversight, he obviously doesn't understand our system of ethics. Which I would be happy to explain to him. Over a drink.

Lucky You: Wiretree CD Release Party

 

Luck by Wiretree officially debuts on the 20th, but they're ready to celebrate with you this Saturday at - where else? - Lucky Lounge. Luck also happens to be our CD of the Month (review at lower right), so we, obviously, recommend that you check that one out.

In other local Saturday night goings on, New Roman Times & Stereo Is A Lie will occupy the newly reborn Ghost Room, which was the Ginger Man until the Ginger Man moved elsewhere.

The entire Deli Austin editorial staff will be off in Portland, and expecting M. Ward to stand for drinks.

Poll Heats Up: Tiny Tin Hearts vs. Quiet Company

 

Reaching the end of our early October poll, and it's definitely too close to call at this point. The Tiny Tin Hearts are making a late run at Quiet Company, and The Laughing (above, and also to be found tonight at Red 7) lurk not too far back (rope-a-dope strategy). They're also one of two poll bands dropping an album today: the Red 7 gig is a release party for The Laughing's LP Fever, and Rocket, from the Darling New Neighbors, goes national today. (Hand-crafted versions, the work of Adam Young and Jaime Cervantes, have been in the hippest hands in Austin since September.) You've got until midnight tonight (Thurs.) to get your vote in...

White Rhino Gives it to Ghandi

 

We mixed it up a little for our new batch of questions with recent poll winner White Rhino, and hit them with all hypotheticals. The Rhino wasted no time and pulled no punches (they have a tour to get to). They'll be at the Mohawk this Friday the 16th, where you can ask 'em yourself why they have no patience for Ghandi. Then they're off to terrify the Southwest throughout October, and back for a Halloween gig at Creekside. Here are five straight shots of White Rhino:

1. If you could get one local guest star on your next album, who would you pick?

ERIKA BARTON FROM THE FACELESS WEREWOLVES. OWW!

2. Give up coffee or give up beer?

I DON'T NEED EITHER CAUSE WE'VE GOT WHISKY

3. You can travel back to 1955 and teach a local band one song: what do you teach them?

HOT FOR TEACHER.

4. Ghandi comes to you in a dream, and says, hey, explain your music to me, what’s the point of it. What do you say?

FUCK YOU GHANDI.

5. What’s the best thing you could possibly hear from someone who just saw one of your shows?

MY TWIN SISTER AND I WANT TO PARTY WITH YOU AFTER THE SHOW.
