Are You A Brave Citizen?

  Hopefully you caught the Brave Citizens show at Nina’s today.  This is a band that knows what they’re doing.  Where most bands fail to translate their recorded sound into a live show, Brave Citizens have a top-notch recording (Revoultion), and pull out all the stops for their live performances.        This foursome […]

 

Brave Citizens At Nina's

Brave Citizens At Nina's

Hopefully you caught the Brave Citizens show at Nina’s today.  This is a band that knows what they’re doing.  Where most bands fail to translate their recorded sound into a live show, Brave Citizens have a top-notch recording (Revoultion), and pull out all the stops for their live performances. 

 

Brave Citizens Rock RedGorilla

Brave Citizens Rock RedGorilla

 

 

This foursome from Los Angeles is full of killer beats, heavy guitars, and live vocals that make you wonder if lip-synching has infiltrated the rock scene (a.k.a they’re spot on).  With a front man who resembles the perfect mix of John Stamos and Kumar—from the Harold & Kumar movie series—a lead guitarist who doubles as a keyboard player, and a killer drummer, Brave Citizens brought down the house Wednesday.  “Impressive” is hardly the word to describe the band’s 40-minute set, which they filled out with tunes from their latest release Revolution.  The one and only thing I would have liked to see them do differently, is announce each song they played so everyone knows what they’re diggin’ on.  Otherwise, the Brave Citizens show at Nina’s has been one of the best shows I’ve seen at the festival so far. 


If you missed Brave Citizens Wednesday PLEASE check out their tunes on MySpace.  You will not be disappointed!

For those of you who are new to the RedGorilla experience, the first show of each day will begin around noon, at each of our designated RedGorilla venues along 6th St. and doesn’t stop until the last sweet riff echoes off into the night—or should I say morning—air. Each day is jam packed with bands from all over the country playing their hearts out for nothing more than their love of music.

Everything from pop, to indie rock, to reggae and hip/hop can be heard at RedGorilla showcases up and down 6th St..

Make sure to check in with us each day to get the latest news and information surrounding the festival. We’ll be announcing special guests, backstage secrets and more, so check back often because you never know what we’ll be talking about.

As always, the best part of the entire week is that all venues at RedGorilla Music Fest are free of a cover charge, and no tickets, wristbands, or badges are required to see any RedGorilla showcase! So, make sure to wear your walking shoes, leave those wallets at home, and join us down on 6th St. for the sickest free music fest ever to hit Austin, TX. See you on 6th Street music lovers!

Congratulations to Poverty Branch for taking the Orlando vote at Will’s Pub last Saturday. All four artists who played are incredible bands, and the RedGorilla team is pumped to have them on board for the big festival in March.

Poverty Branch are high power pop rockers with strong vocals and solid musicianship. The quintet lists numerous influences from Pink Floyd to The Avett Brothers, and Coheed and Cambria, which are evident in their experimental, yet organic sound.

Check out Poverty Branch at the Dizzy Rooster on Thursday March 19th between 7pm-1am where all the venue winners from our five Road to RedGorilla events will be showcasing.

Don't Miss Mumpsy On The Road To RedGorilla

This indie-pop/rock group from Orlando, Fla. Formed in 2005 and is ready to take their shiny brand of pop to the next level. Thanks to strong mid-60’s style melodies (Think, The Beatles) and the influential energy of the punk scene (Misfits, The Stooges) Mumpsy delivers a solidly original sound wrapped neatly in a pretty pop […]
