San Saba County
"The days burn like cigarettes," sings San Saba County on second disc It's Not the Fall That Hurts, but they're not talking about the weather. The Arkansas travelers, guilt-racked Catholics, and impatient brides-to-be of these rural goth missives shoulder enough grief to make a feller pine for simpler days back in the big city, which they do on "Nothin' Like the Dallas Homesick Blues." - Chris Gray - Austin Chronicle -

boy + kite
Boy + Kite (“Boy Plus Kite”) was formed in 2009 in an an unlikely place - a hot tub. Back then, Boy + Kite’s Darvin Jones and Beth Puorro would often sneak into a spa on the outskirts of Austin to swim and pretend to be members of the bourgeoisie. While lounging in bathrobes and discussing band break-ups, Jones and Puorro realized a mutual connection that would eventually lead to the creation of Go Fly, Boy + Kite’s debut album.
Though the pair initially bonded over shared musical interests, they still considered themselves polar opposites, with Jones’s heart based in experimental sounds (B. Fleischman, Ms. John Soda) and Puorro’s leaning towards pop (The Cure, The Pixies). In Boy + Kite, they take advantage of this difference, with lyrics, vocals and melodies developed from the unique combination of Jones and Puorro’s individual viewpoints.
According to Jones, this duality is at the core of the band. “We aren’t trying to tell just one story,” he explains. “We combine our writing, then we cut it up and put it back together to make a new story altogether.” A Go Fly standout track “Alone With A Microphone” was created this way. “We wrote the lyrics independently and then combined them without trying to make it work. We’ve found that the themes will often mesh without having to think about it. It just happens.” Jones continues, “The most important aspect of music for me is to be honest. My inspiration is focused in writing from my gut, not from my head and with Go Fly, we wanted to make a perfect summer soundtrack.”
The Nouns - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
