Good local shows next weekend

There are a ton of really great events going on in Austin next weekend involving lots of local bands. First up on Friday is a three stage show at Emos. The Black Angels bring their tripped out fuzzy psych rock to the outside stage while The Lemurs, Ume, and The Laughing (barf) are all playing the inside stage. While all of this is going on, if you walk around the corner to Emo's Lounge you'll get to see Golden Bear, The Mercers, and Mice and Rifles. That's a whole lot of local talent all in one place. The Black Angels show has advance tickets on sale at Ticketweb for $10.

After taking in all of that on Friday, the smart choice for Saturday is The Austin Sound Off Festival at the Scoot Inn. The fest starts at 3pm and cover is $5 ($3 if you RSVP with Do512 first). Here's a list of the bands playing

Outside Stage:
11:00pm-12:00am: Golden Bear
10:00-11:00pm: Peel
8:45-9:30pm: Brazos
7:30-8:15pm: Black Before Red
6:15-7:00pm: The Black
5:00-5:45pm: Sunset
4:00-4:45pm: Charles Potts Magic Windmill Band

Inside Stage:
12:00-1:00am: Leatherbag
9:30-10:15pm: Transmography
8:15-9:00pm: Benko
7:00-7:45pm: Virgin of the Birds
5:45-6:30pm: The Narrow Escapes
4:30-5:15pm: Tullie

There will be DJ sets on the outside stage between bands by various local music bloggers. It sounds like a blast. The website boasts of free food and "some" free beer.

If you have any energy left after all that live music swing by The Mohawk later that night to see I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness. I've said it before and I'll gladly say it again, that's the best band name ever. Members of The Brazilian Girls will also be there spinning.

That's a packed weekend right there.
