The Sideshow Tragedy Debut Music Video for New Single "Nobody"

 Austin blues rockers, The Sideshow Tragedy, are a charismatic hybrid of Texas roots influence and an unhinged garage-influenced moxie. As this duo prepares to release their upcoming new album, The View From Nowhere, they are tantalizing fans with a music video for the album's first single "Nobody." Tapping into their Texas upbringing, Nathan Singleton and Jeremy Harrell, showcase a rugged blue-collar life in their video by working the land, fixing trucks, and drinking in dirty bars. Lyrics like "There is nobody else out on the road tonight/ Just me and my memories looking for a fight" tap into the small-town rugged psyche that dominates the music. The Sideshow Tragedy will be playing a Tuesday night residency at Stay Gold at throughout October, for those in Austin looking for a good time.

   

New Track: "Point of Personal Privilege" - Weller

“Point of Personal Privilege” serves as the second single off Weller’s full-length debut, due out on October 20. Gradually illustrating a poignant heart-wrenching tale, that optimistic imagery is torn to pieces by the harshness of reality. Somber self-evaluations, accentuated by the warm build of backing harmonies, come crashing, battered by swells of tension-releasing instrumentation. On Saturday, November 4, JJ’s Diner will be hosting the band’s record release show, with Three Man Cannon and Allegra rounding out the lineup.

   

The Nuclears to shake up Sunnyvale 10/21

The Nuclears might sound like a some unearthed garage-y gold from your latest crate digging escapades, but the five-piece have only been tearing up the NYC-scene for not even a decade. The band plays raw rock 'n' roll the way your daddy used to like, with all the electricity of old-school punk acts, and they even dabble in dirty rock-a-billy for the discerning rock purist. Check them out live at Sunnyvale 10/21 and be sure to check out their music below. - Olivia Sisinni

   

Outer Rooms - New Album, Release Party Saturday!

A small but mighty indie rock band from Toronto. Outer Rooms just released a new album last month titled “Even In The Cannon’s Mouth”. The album opens up with a track named after everyone’s favorite TTC subway station “Castle Frank”. They definitely have some influence from early 2000’s indie rock as well as the more recent tunes from The Arkells. The title track has catchy guitar licks along with an emotional, part-yelling vocal performance. Catch Outer Rooms Release Party this Saturday (October 21) at Handlebar with Grids, Westelaken and Reader. – Kris Gies 

   

Knifey - Full Tilt Pop Punk on new EP

 “Beached” is the new record from Toronto 4 piece power pop band Knifey. They have some well done pop punk that’ll remind you of growing up.

Available for download on their bandcamp page. Knifey plays The Great Hall on Saturday (October 21) along with Pkew Pkew Pkew, Sure and Pineapple Girls. – Kris Gies
