Saturday Freakout

By: Laurie Gallardo

We’re your BB’s. Big Bill. Photography: David Brendan Hall.

OH. MY. WORD. This one will stop you in your tracks. But the AMM recommends dancing and flailing wildly about for tonight’s show at Radio Coffee and Beer, 4202 Menchaca Rd. Or consult with your physician to find out if your heart can handle this chaotic musical spree.

  • Did you know??!! Big Bill…is a band. Upon soaking in that revelation, make sure to lose yourself in the delightful dementia of Big Bill’s Public Freakout Compilation, tangible proof that life can be marvelous despite (or in spite of) various catastrophic or utterly craptastic situations. Eric Cartman‘s vocals encapsulate joy – and terror. Fun for the whole family!
  • The AMM would like to thank resident badass Daniel Francis Doyle for the heads-up on this project. Vocalist/bassist/guitarist Sylvia and drummer Erica join forces with Daniel to construct and deconstruct Wet Dip. Experimental/art punk/post-punk provocateurs. Feed your brainwaves.
  • Terrorize the locals and look SENSATIONAL while doing so. Make way for trash glam/punk outfit Lord Friday the 13th, led by sibs Felix Lenz and Sloan Lenz. And if you’d like to run this full circle – Sloan Lenz designed the fantastical BB ensembles sported by Big Bill in photo shoots and shows. We’re all connected.

The music kicks off at 8 p.m. It won’t feel cold at all with this fire.

Zachariah…And Pamela Anderson

Truth be told, your nerdy AMM host is drooling like a goblin over Hyperreal Film Club‘s upcoming scary October screenings at Hotel Vegas. This Austin-based film lovers’ club, formed in 2016, does badass pop-up screenings of independent films of every genre at various spots around town, and provides a platform for guest columnists to write […]

The humor is just as beautiful as the damn album, and the album is gorgeous. It starts as soon as you drop the needle on “Girls Bugging Me” on BOOTCUT. You clearly hear Afie Jurvanen, better known as Nova Scotia-based artist Bahamas, attempting to record something, but his young daughters are not having it. “…Can […]

Crew Vs. Crew

In any exploration of the origins of bboy subculture and its crucial role in the development of hip-hop, one of the best rabbit holes to dive into is the work of Bronx street photographer Ricky Flores. The stark black and white imagery from these formative years carries a unique fluidity and exuberance, but Flores was […]
