Grape St. bio: Although Grape St. prompted the proposal in the Texas legislature to ban the acquisition of exotic pets, their efforts have been mildly halted, with Art and Freedom calling the opposition to private ownership naïve. Zoos currently lack the space and resources to accommodate such charmed-life animal; they say repopulating creature’s native habitats is an ineffective stab in the dark: a young man’s game. It’s wonderful to say “let’s get them back in the wild,” but between poaching and mankind’s encroachment, they are never going to thrive there again. 
So began the journey of Grape St…they languidly held out their hands, took the flowers, carelessly sniffed at them and began twirling them in their fingers, looking upwards with thoughtful solemnity. Pop Sensibility and Under-lying Familiarity watched the Grape Streeters, her mournful eyes looking down upon them with such devotion, such adoring submission and love. She was afraid of the St. and did not dare to cry; its breath exhaled “misery,” lolling like a déjà vu, with magnanimous patience and condescension accepted by her adoration. The St. glared indignantly at her flushed face with a big broom, on which vanity, satisfied and satiated, showed through the affected, scornful indifference. Pop Sensibility and Under-lying Familiarity was so sweet at this instant; her whole soul was confidently and passionately laid bare before Grape St., full of longing and tenderness, while the St….the St. dropped the flowers in the grass, pulled out of the side pocket of a nice coat a round eyeglass set in a purple rim, and stuck in her eye. But, however much she tried to hold it wither her own eye problems, frowning brow, pursed cheek, and even nose, the eyeglass kept tumbling out and falling into her hand. 
As the media treated the Grape St. band’s incident as the freak out of a deranged band, the fact is that virtually anyone is this country-of sound mind or not-can keep wild animal. The incident, the bad trips. 
Federal law restricts the interstate sale and transport of certain big cats, “A-sides,” but no national law exists regarding the indulgent ownership of such exotic pets. That is left to the states, where laws vary widely. One of them, Texas, has virtually no laws regulating the possession of these animals, and though 49 states band the ownership of degenerate magazine subscriptions, mercury cougar coupes, mercury retrograde, gambling, new moon indifference, and most “non-human primates” (punk-rockers and slackers), the laws can be difficult to enforce, particularly in Austin and surrounding rural areas. 
With one date. Introductory badz…boyz, a fresh breeze ran over the dropouts and sleeping teens on Austin. They opened their eyes: the morning was beginning. The dawn had not yet flushed the sky, but already light was breaking in the East. Everything had become visible, if only dimly. The Grape sky was growing light, cold and purple; the stars dimmed and disappeared; the earth was wet, the dirt covered with dew. From the distance came sounds of life and voices, a faint hung-over breeze went fluttering over the truth. Bodies responded to it, with slight, joyous shivering. They were all sleeping like a dead man around smoldering fire; only Grape St. half rose and gazed intently at the dropouts and sleeping teens, knowing you are only that because you know that. They threw it all away.The Rich Hands bio: Growing up listening to ’60s and ’70s rock ‘n’ roll and surrounded by a serious scene in their hometown, singer and guitarist Cody Mauser, bassist Matt Gonzalex and drummer Nick Ivarra all found common ground in the camaraderie of good old rock and roll. Jamming together over those formidable years of high school, Ivarra describes the groups desire to, “bring back that raw, simple feeling of having a good time without the melodrama.” Developing that sound by feeding off each other’s addictive energy, The Rich Hands succeed in every aspect of that early creed, and Out of My Head is the unequivocal expression of pure joy.
The last few years have been a whirlwind for the band, recording and releasing a slew of singles leading up to last year’s Dreamers LP and touring across the country on four separate tours just in 2013 alone. Throughout it all, Mauser is a constant song-writing machine, with hardly a break between albums. The songs that make up Out of my Head are his best yet; fast, fun and second to none. The band’s first single off their new album, “Teenager,” ranks as one of the most quintessential tracks The Rich Hands have ever committed to tape. Ivarra calls it a “catchy, corny, bratty summery anthem. It just popped out at us, when you play a song once and it’s just done, it clicks.” This assertion could just as easily describe the album in whole; it just clicks.There’s a lot of new, eclectic elements at play on the new LP as well, recorded in a cold Detroit week at High Bias Studios, and produced by Chris Koltay (Atlas Sound, Xiu Xiu, Tyvek). The band took full advantage of their new hi-fi surroundings, belting out the album on a variety of amps and axes they never previously could get their hands on. The result was a “huge change of pace,” according to Ivarra. “We got crazy tones and a better sound. I don’t think we’ll ever go back.” Out of My Head also features the group’s first foray into double tracking, Nashville tuning, and even organs and synths, lending just a hint of Southern bravado on tracks like the wholly surprising Dylan-inspired “No Harm Blues.” Buoyed by the quality of the new record, and backed by two supportive labels, The Rich Hands have a wide-open road ahead, and they’re determined to enjoy every last step they take.

Paul Collins bio: The Beat was founded by Paul Collins, who spent his pre-teens living in Greece, Vietnam and Europe before returning to his native New York. He studied at the prestigious Julliard Music School and eventually moved to San Francisco where he joined songwriter Jack Lee and bassist Peter Case to form The Nerves in 1974. The Nerves proved to be one of the pioneers of the burgeoning US punk rock scene, independently releasing their own 4 song EP which included the classic “Hanging on the Telephone,” later to become a hit for Blondie.After The Nerves disbanded in 1977, Collins moved to LA and formed The Beat with bassist Steve Huff, drummer Mike Ruiz and lead guitarist Larry Whitman. Their friend Eddie Money recommended The Beat for management by legendary concert promoter Bill Graham. Under new management, The Beat toured with The Police, The Jam and Joe Jackson. They also made numerous TV appearances and recorded their debut self-titled album with producer Bruce Botnick (who had produced The Doors). The album featured Beatles and Byrds-influenced guitars and catchy choruses, defining the skinny-tied power pop which The Knack took to the charts. In the ’90s, The Beat re-formed as Paul Collins’ Beat and continues to write and tour.

Froth bio:Hailing from Echo Park, CA, Froth combines a forward-thinking garage rock sound with elements of shoegaze and psych-pop washed in the dreamy textures of omnichord and jangly 12-string guitar. Getting their start in 2012, Froth has quickly risen through the ranks of the Los Angeles DIY music scene, playing with the likes of The Growlers, Cosmonauts, La Luz, Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel, Mystic Braves and many more. Along with playing popular local events like The Growlers’ annual Beach Goth Party and Burgerama, Froth has also gained exposure to an international audience after being hand-picked by Hedi Slimane to score the Saint Laurent AW14 menswear collection runway show. After releasing their debut album, Patterns, via Burger Records and Lolipop Records in the fall of 2013, Froth continues to attract new fans with their strong hooks and high-energy live show, and remains dedicated to exploring the sonic possibilities of their expansive psychedelic sound.Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel bio:From the sands of Laguna Beach where Tomas & Wyatt and fellow Elevator repair service collegue met through a dolphin’s cry in the midst of the night, waning-moon present and shimmering across the moonlit sea. The 3 most watery human beings then started to “jam” as a guitar-less mind exploration voyage through the realms of time and space itself. They then released their first full length self-titled album. But faith had the best of them, as their fellow collegue Justin “Martini” Martinez had another journey to encompass himself. Left stranded as a 2 piece, Wyatt & Thomas had to find a compatible space voyager to fill in the shoes of Justin Martini the so called “space dolphin”. After endless amounts of traveling through the milky way galaxy and others, like the snicker doodle and reese’s pieces galaxies. They found their mate. The fire-dragon, by the name of Andrew Minter. As the new family of 3 started their next voyage they then moved to the city of angeles. To a shack of a home in the middle of the bustling and ever so noisy and populated city, away from the soft and sensual beach town of laguna. They then, ever so swiftly released their 2nd release…the EP called “Staring at the Sun.” An EP about the mind and how a human being can go through stages of love & post-psychotic-ness. As they live and frolic in los angeles, they are now working on another full length LP to be released in the next couple of months….but until then, they remain as Mr.Elevator & the Brain Hotel.Wyatt Blair bio:"The power-pop currently racing out of the brain of Los Angeles-based and Orange Country-bred musician Wyatt Blair is that inspiring force and it’s all sugary excitement, throaty Marc Bolan swagger, and thunderous hip-twisting foot-stomping power-chord fun. Blair, who’s toured alongside the likes of The Lovely Bad Things and Peach Kelli Pop and released an EP called Peach Colored Pussy, works equal parts humor and melody into each of his charmingly simple and infectiously malted pop confections. Blair’s newest release, Banana Cream Dream, is out now on cassette from (who else) Burger Records with a forthcoming vinyl release due out on Resurrection Records. From the uproarious muted-guitar hum of "Girls!" to the swinging blues and stutter on "Sweet Operator (Talkin’ On The Telephone)", the songs on Banana Cream Dream are so instantaneously uplifting and savagely simple that it’s nearly impossible to escape the fun. This summer, whether you’re cruising a dark highway, swatting away mosquitoes and crushing beer cans on a back porch somewhere, or simply doing the dishes alone in the kitchen, please pop in this record and proceed to shimmy, head bang, and pogo forth all that is wonderful, sweet, and forever satisfying about a fresh new slab of boogie-friendly rock ‘n’ roll."Corners bio:"Garage rock in the purest form that makes you want to go out and cause a little trouble. ‘Sometimes’ had me wanting to throw on my leather jacket and step out into the dark night, ready for any adventure that may be lurking in the alleys.

Martin$8 Presale  At the Door $10-21+/$12 Minors Doors 8PM All Ages http://www.ticketfly.com/event/630849-marnie-stern-san-antonio/Marnie Stern bio: There’s little doubt that Marnie Stern lives up to her reputation as “the lady who shreds,” but for Marnie, shredding is not enough. After putting out three critically-acclaimed albums, Marnie could have gotten away with putting out another album filled with her richly layered sound, singular frenetic finger tapping and almost philosophical lyrics. However, as anyone who has given her last few albums a good listen can tell, Marnie is not one to stand still. Instead she attacks her musical evolution with full frontal bravado, reveling in musical risk instead of relaxing in the comforts of the known. For Marnie, musical possibility drives her ambition.Her new album, The Chronicles of Marnia, finds Marnie not only working with a new drummer (Oneida’s Kid Millions), but also passionately subtracting from her normally dense song structures to craft a sound that is both familiar and wholly original. “I always gravitate towards interweaving and a more abrasive sound,” Marnie said about working on the new album. “I was working with Nicholas Vernhes from Rare Book Room Recording in Brooklyn, and he was the producer. He wanted my voice clearer and fewer guitar parts. I tried it because I wanted to try something different.”Her trademark exuberant guitar work is still present, in fact, absent a few layers of grit, it’s even more evident. “We stripped away a lot of the layers and a lot of unnecessary interweaving guitar parts. There’s less clutter and more of staying on a part without adding too much instrumentation.” Through the subtractive production process, Marnie’s voice became more prominent, a fact that kind of concerns Marnie, “I get worried that I am coming across as someone who thinks they are a ‘singer,’ as opposed to my usual mishmash of voices that aren’t always in key,” she said about the album’s more pronounced vocals. “I grapple with that attitude because I think it’s important as a musician to try and be as proficient as possible, or try to put a lot of work into it. I suppose in my own way, I put a ton of time into singing and trying to find interesting melody ideas, I just never think of myself as having a ‘nice’ voice.” It’s an enervating change for an artist who in the past has always skillfully buried her vocals under the guitar and drum tracks.The musical transformation evident on her new album isn’t entirely unexpected, as fans who have listened to both “For Ash” and “Every Single Line Means Something” in a single sitting know. That same slow progression can be seen between 2010’s self-titled album and the forthcoming The Chronicles of Marnia. Marnie can’t help but laugh when thinking back on her musical evolution. “I’m sure if I went from the first album to this one, I’d have a heart attack. Luckily it’s been gradual enough for me to enjoy the changes.” And there’s little doubt that her fans will too. Even as Marnie evolves from what Pitchfork called her “art-metal math-rock bubblegum pop” genre, fans will still find themselves jumping head first into the album and quickly bonding with the emotionally resonant material, cascading hooks and transcendental guitar riffs. Plus, the album shreds. She is Marnie Stern after all.
