Upcoming events (3)
Hi all! I just wanted to put an event like this on the calendar to gauge interest for a bar meetup to get some beer/cocktails and say hello! Many of you are new to Austin or just looking to meet new people, so this would be a great way to get things started. Open to suggestions! Location TBD, I'm open to either out where I live in Allendale / Burnet road or somewhere else cool! Love trying new places too :) Note: I'm going to keep trying to grow the group. Ideally I want to see that 50+ people have joined the meetup by at least 4 days before this date. If not I'll push the event out and wait until more people have joined the meetup. I had over 1,300 members in San Diego, so I'm hopeful!
The show will likely start at 7:00pm. Let's meet up at doors time and drink beforehand and get some time to chat before the show! --- Metronomy are an English electronic group from Devon and Totnes, which began as the solo project of frontman Joe Mount in 1999. It’s funny how many great bands seem to start off as little more than a bedroom project, but Metronomy are one such outfit; Joe Mount had been messing around with making music under the name for quite some time - starting in the late nineties and early noughties, whilst he was still living with his parents in south-west England - before he was finally able to put the moniker to an album release proper; “Nights Out”, released in September 2008, might not have been the band’s debut album - that accolade fell to the strangely-titled “Pip Paine (Pay the £5000 You Owe)” - but it was the album that announced Metronomy’s subtle, low-key blend of synthpop and electronica to the alternative music world, and carved them out a cult fanbase in the process. What it wasn’t, though, was Metronomy’s breakthrough; instead, it was album number three that could claim that title, as “The English Riviera” - released in April 2011 - met with rave reviews and earned a Mercury Prize nomination later that year. Its success was down in no small part to the increased confidence on stage that the band had been displaying, as they’d finally managed to nail down a consistent lineup that included Anna Prior behind the drum kit and Gbenga Adelekan on bass. They built upon their burgeoning reputation in March 2014 with “Love Letters”, another rapturously received full-length; there’s no real question that they’re one of Britain’s best-loved cult bands.

Hi folks! First time planning an event here, but supposedly it's known for special surprise guest appearances! Let's meet up and have some laughs! I'll update if I find out anymore details, perhaps we can meet up before for some drinks around 9 or so! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/live-at-coldtowne-stand-up-comedy-tickets-92992203183?aff=eand
