Salesman, Who By Fire, and Darling New Neighbors at Moose Lodge Thursday
It could be the wood panelling. It could very well be the overall old-school vibe of the Moose Lodge in East Austin. Above all else, it’s just a great setting and laid-back atmosphere for more intimate performances in the local music scene.
It’s tucked away near the old Mueller Airport, at 2103 E. M. Franklin Ave., one light east of Airport Blvd., between Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd and Manor Rd. And it has one of the best signs ever, which simply reads “Moose.” So the Moose will, indeed, light the way.
Make plans to head out there this Thursday night for a triple bill show that includes a good mix of indie rock, roots, punk and post-punk madness. Starting out the night will be Austin’s folk-rock indie-popsters (prone to trading instruments) Darling New Neighbors, followed by Baton Rouge sharply-fanged punk-rock-folkish outfit Who By Fire. Then Austin’s Salesman will taunt and mesmerize you into a sublime state with haunting melodies.
Get to the Lodge around 8 p.m., since the first band is on at 8:30 p.m. Not bad at all. Full of crunchy goodness.
