The Heart Is

By: Laurie Gallardo

Home Is Where

Home Is Where captures the frustration, the mindlessness, the disassociation of existing – or, attempting to exist – in an increasingly apathetic world on The Whaler, with the exhilaration of punk, hardcore, and a nod to emo. It’s a sonic transmission of one overwhelmed with repulsion, not just bursting but tearing out of the societal fabric’s suffocating expectation with an unhinged scream. Lyricist/vocalist Brandon MacDonald writes from her own experiences of anxiety and dread pervading her life as she navigates a world that doesn’t want her to exist. Or worse – a world that doesn’t give a damn.

This is the show. See Home Is Where tonight, Monday Sept. 11, at the Far Out Lounge and Stage in South Austin. The line-up includes Denton bands Homewrecker and the Bedwetters and Upsetting, and Austin outfit Lola Tried. Doors at 7 p.m.
