7/6: Monday at Emo's (outside) (all ages) ($20 advance)
Pentagram (only Texas reunion show)
Wolves in the Throne Room
( buy tickets )
jesus fucking christ, where do i even start with this one? heavy heavy heavy dirty fucked up sludgy dirty metal. METAL.
i'd be surprised if this didn't sell out - buy your ticket in advance!
7/7: Tuesday at Emo's (all ages) (inside) ($8)
this should be a fun one. although abe vigoda is often lumped in with no age, given their shared hometown (los angeles) and similar art/pop/punk vibe, they're definitely their own beast. they'll be bringing their own brand of fuzzed out, noisy, dancy punk. i really don't know much about talbot tagora aside from the fact that they have a cover of elastica's "connection" up on their myspace. if they play it live it could be worth the price of admission alone. loser life are more straight ahead punk than the other bands. let's put it this way: less L.A., more bakersfield.
7/9: Thursday at Emo's (all ages) (inside) ($10)
( buy tickets )
after monday's pentagram show you may need to change gears a little bit. if so, stop by emo's for a night of alt-country/indie/blues featuring deer tick, dawes, and shed alfred.

my buddy bryan (who is not even an austinite... yet!) sat down and plotted lots of punk-friendly spots around austin on a google map. he's got venues, record stores, restaurants, bars, etc. eventually it looks like it will have a calendar of punk events in austin, too. this will be especially useful for out of towners, especially those with fancy phones. very cool!

if ramones style pop punk isn't quite hard enough for you, check out the inside stage at emo's saturday night. unholy grave from japan (famous for their prolificacy with split records) will be grinding the shit out of the small room with magrudergrind and texan dudes pretty little flower and hatred surge. should be brutalific.
