Ola Podrida Performs Saturday Night at Frank
Ola Podrida began as the solo project of film composer David Wingo. When he moved to New York City in 2006, though, it soon evolved into a live band that just happened to include some of his Texas friends.
While in New York, Ola Podrida had amazing opportunities to play shows with Fleet Foxes, Beach House, She & Him, Blitzen Trapper, and many other great bands, and the big coup was getting a spot in the All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival in the UK, curated by Explosions In the Sky. Wingo moved back to Austin in 2009, and the band, which is now a quartet (Matt Clark, David Hobizal and Colin Swietek), is currently working on a new album that’s scheduled for a spring release.
Luckily, you don’t have to wait until then to hear some new tracks. Ola Podrida will give you a preview at their show Saturday night at Frank, located at 4th and Colorado. The bill includes performances by ((Sounder)) and Girling. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. Recommended.
