Big Bill

Big Bill Releases New Video For "Pharmacy"

The high falsetto warble of Big Bill's nonsensical punk is as energizing as it is entertaining. Formed in 2011 by the Braden brothers, Big Bill continues on Austin's punk legacy with local bands like the Big Boys clearly influencing their sound. The band's debut LP, Stand By Your Bill, comes out on November 17 and "Pharmacy" is one of their first singles. The video, which is directed by Andy Ray Lemon, channels elements of Asian karaoke videos and 80's era elemental video effect. Four random punker girls mime the song's lyrics in one of Big Bill's suprisingly more normal videos with a catchy but morbid lyrics togoalong with it. Big Bill is a perfect mix of humor, anti-establishmentism, musical talent, and the absurd - so support them by buying their debut LP, Stand By Your Bill, when it comes out next Friday.


:: Hikes and All Our Favorite Things::

This Friday, Cheer Up Charlie's is hosting a show of some of The Deli Austin's favorite local bands, all leading up to the release of the new EP from Hikes.  Hikes came on our radar last year after the release of what looks like the most fun video shoot of all time.  Do yourself a favor...

Pair that with what is some of the most heartfelt and ambitious music coming out of Austin and needless to say, we're excited to hear the new record. It's a long night of music and DJs starting with Nathaniel Red and sets from Chipper Jones, Big Bill, Happy Hell and Young Tongue.  All great bands and an amazing, eclectic line-up of local talent.  Get there early and stay late.
