Mighty Mountain

RECAP - Our First Best Of Austin's Deli Magazine Showcase, 8/23/13 @ Club DeVille

The showcase was held inside to escape the heat (and light for those with laser shows!). Our musical lineup included: Ray Prim, Space Crazies, Mighty Mountain, Awkward Robot and Sour Bridges. To finish the night out we had a Costume Couture show by Mardi Gras designer, Hazel Mahony. And that was just the inside stage...

Outside, on Club DeVille's mainstage, we had LED lit hula hooping. By the entrance sat one of our sponsors, Garbo's Lobster Truck ATX, which sold out long before the night was over. Texas Music Water was flowing freely all around and Circle C sponsored us with their delicious BLUR brew. A video is in the works from the live interview corner we set up to chat with every performer following their set. I'll be posting the final edit soon, so be sure to check back.

As for what's next- I'm planning another event for the new year showcasing female fronted bands. And of course after that, there's always SXSW. Email thedeliaustin@gmail.com to get involved. Advertising and sponsorship inquiries can be sent to that email as well. Thank you again to our sponsors: The Good Music Club, TRCOA, Garbo's Lobster Truck, Texas Music Water, Circle C, The Flier Fairy, Unabashed Productions, Club DeVille and last but not least, CourtPie Photography for the great images. See you next time! -Written by Charise Sowells

Octant Plays A Summer Fling TONIGHT, 7/26/13 @ The Parish

Technically, Octant is a one-man band. Matthew Steinke stands alone on stage singing fragile dream-pop melodies over reverb-laden guitar sounds. But he’s not the only thing making noise; makeshift player pianos churn out soaring ornamentation while a bevy of percussion beats itself in time. And somehow, it all sounds surprisingly human -- maybe there’s some life in Steinke’s algorithms.

While you’re waiting for Octant’s new album to release this fall, take a peek at his electromechanical backup band in the new video for “Forget", off their 2011 release. And come see Octant tonight at the Parish for a Summer Fling with Mighty Mountain, Borrisokane and Tiger Wave. --Written by Kevin Allen

Sorne Record Release @ Holy Mountain on 4/27/13

Every now and then you see a show that blows your mind so much that you see that band time and time again. Sorne took me to another plane the first time I ever saw them with their sonic storytelling, omniscient vocals, chilling visuals and driving drumbeats. When the song was over, the realization set in that it was only a sound check. Everybody looked around at one another as if we'd just witnessed something out of this world and although I'd been planning to leave after the band before them, there was no way I was missing out on this experience now.

Come witness the avant garde magic on Saturday the 27th at Holy Mountain as Sorne releases their second album, Ego Altar. The title track can be heard below. Mighty Mountain and Hikes will be sharing the bill that night. See you there. -- Written by Charise Sowells
