One Hundred Flowers, Cartographers and Western Ghost House Play Friday Night at Frank
Now usually, when I, your Austin Music Minute maven Laurie Gallardo, go on one of my raves about the mighty triple bill, it’s all Austin bands. This time, we’ve made room to show a little San Antonio love. (Hey, it’s a Texas band, so that counts.)
This week, we have bands One Hundred Flowers and Western Ghost House sharing a bill with San Antonio indie rock outfit Cartographers at Frank, located at 407 Colorado St. near 4th. One Hundred Flowers has been featured on AMM before, and had their track “Rat Trap” played on Texas Music Matters . The quintet released their debut album, Mechanical Bride, in November 2010 to much critical acclaim and followed that with a tour along the West Coast.
Western Ghost House began as a smaller project in 2008, when Jesse Pantoja and Steven Garcia collaborated on some electronic tracks on a friend’s computer. After some temporary changes and moves, the quartet reunited to record their first EP in 2009, and have written and played together since.
Cartographers features the talents of guitarist Jackson Albracht joined on vocals by guitarist Raul Alvarez and bassist Justin Davenport. Composer Marcus Rubio does guitar and shares keyboard duties with Aaron Green, and drums and percussion are provided by Skyler Ellis. Very impressive rock/pop of epic proportions.
The show at Frank is Friday night, and doors open at 9:30 p.m. Great music coming from all three of these talented bands. Check ‘em out.
