Perhaps the tales are as old as time, but really…the adventure never gets old.

Altamesa spun an intricate web of intrigue with mysterious stories about a brooding, wandering soul in their collection of singles, which culminated into the full-length release, Idol Frontier. He was in the shadows, tortured but driven. Naturally, your Austin Music Minute maven was hooked like a goth on Bauhaus. How would the story end?

Perhaps it hasn’t ended yet. In the meantime, experience that great music live at Altamesa’s show tonight at Hole In the Wall, 2538 Guadalupe. The bill includes San Marcos band Christian Sparks and the Beatnik Bandits, and a set by Dinner With Matt Gilchrest. The music starts at 9 p.m. Recommended.

One more thing: Should you happen upon Altamesa front man/songwriter Evan Charles, get that fella a beer and wish him a happy birthday.
