Neuf Mile Records celebrates its 15th anniversary

Garage Empire, Friday 10 – Sunday 12

After 15 years as an independent label, this is no small feat in the first place. Then try to survive the hammer blow of the pandemic and it’s no wonder that Nine Mile Records founder Rick Pierik is counting his blessings.

“I couldn’t be more grateful,” says Pierik. “It’s weird to think about so many years because when you’re in the trenches time just flies. I was on a freight train and suddenly the world stopped during the pandemic, and I I had a chance to look out the freight train window and look at all the terrain I had walked, and was a little amazed at what it was. It was not a straightforward path. “

Along the way, Nine Mile has nurtured some of ATX’s most exciting acts, nine of which will play in the label’s three-night anniversary celebration at Empire.

Shinyribs anchors the Friday festivities alongside Sir Woman and Nuevo; Sweet Spirit, Go Fever and The Deer join forces for Saturday; and Sunday’s finale will see the reunion of local singer-songwriter supergroup Glorietta with support from Greyhounds and Buffalo Hunt. A mishmash of genres – involving punk to funk, folk to soul, pop to rock – but Pierik insists they share one thing in common.

“What excites me the most about music and musicians is the performance,” says Pierik. “Everyone who plays this weekend is [playing] because I saw them live and was blown away. “– David Brendan Room

EP Glasshealer release

Vegas Hotel, Friday 10

Glasshealer prepares with a synth-pop syringe eager to inject the masses with a critical dose of neuropathic stimulation during the exit show for But the weight of comfort pulled me down, which traces a Sega soundscape of surrealist pop art and direct dystopia. Holy Wave, meanwhile, unleashes the eerie pysch-pop sound waves of the 2014 classic. Relax. Flora & Fawna pump a precursor primer of spaced sound to fly the style straight to Jupiter with thick distortions coated in a rhythm of rave energy.– Mars Salazar

Vincent Neil Emerson, Mayeux & Broussard

Cheval Blanc, Saturday 11

The White Horse dance floor is now wearing a decade of boot scuffing and some of East Sixth’s perennial favorites help mark the occasion: Tate Mayeux of local cosmic marsh duo Mayeux & Broussard has defected for the east coast, but will return home for the show. Continuing the White Horse’s reputation as a favorite among locals and weekends, the poster also features Chicago jazz-country fusionists Dan Whitaker & the Shinebenders, as well as East Texas native Vincent Neil Emerson. , who will undoubtedly play “White Horse Saloon”: “I’m going to the White Horse Saloon / I’m going to drink my fill / I don’t have time to kill. “– Abby Johnston

Hayes carll

Antone’s, Friday 10 – Sunday 12

Carll cut his teeth playing thug bars on the Gulf, which sharpened his smart wit and disarming charm. During the second half of his two-decade career, however, the Texan developed a more sincere side, yielding to poignant ballads about fatherhood, divorce, new love, and aging. Both sides of his writing light up this year’s seventh LP, You get everything, as Carll continues to illuminate the musical horizon of The Lone Star. His three-night stand at Antone’s adds wandering country rocker Jonathan Terrell, suave Latin rhythm Lisa Morales and Tony Kamel of Wood & Wire as respective openers.– Doug Freeman

Luna luna

Empire control room, Sunday 12

Good news, Austin! Now we welcome the swoony and extra-sweet sounds of bilingual synth-pop quartet Luna Luna, recently moved from Dallas. Originating from Colombian-born songwriter Kavvi’s solo project, the singer’s iPhone recordings, created while working at Walmart, evolved into floating tracks like 2018’s “80’s Tune.” ‘August Moon Flower loops with bassist Ryan Gordon, drummer Kaylin Martínez and singer / keyboardist Danny Bonilla. The groovy effort straddles 2000s R&B alongside the salsa and bachata that Kavvi grew up on, always true to the potential of slow dancing with “Love Song”. LA multi-instrumentalist Boyo and El Paso art-pop trio Estereomance open their doors.– Rachel Rascoe
