Yellow Fever + The power of a good poster.


I'm going to go ahead and agree with Tiffany at Austin is Burning here on the issue of attractive show posters. Bands, bookers, promoters, etc: If you have a pretty and/or clever poster to accompany your gig, bloggers want to post it. Just saying - it's worth the investment.

So let's get down to the show happening tomorrow at Mohawk. Many people are into the Vivian Girls. I'll admit - I am ever so sloowly warming up to them. From what I hear, they shine in the live show, and while they played at SXSW many times I never saw them. On the other hand, Yellow Fever had me at hello, know what I mean? Their music makes me feel like I am at once in the '70s, and also in a spy movie. (A '70s spy movie?)

So Yellow Fever, what's your story? Have you always been from Austin?

In other music news, lots of neat stuff coming down the pipeline soon...a Great Nostalgic album review, an interview with Stellastarr*, shtuff about the Texas Hill Country Wine and Food Festival.

And. And.

This is random, but I've been giving a lot of thought to a potential "Real Housewives of Austin." Bravo fans, can you feel me on this? I watched the pilot for "Real Housewives of New Jersey" last night, and my throat hurts from laughter-shrieking. Did any of you see it?

I missed the New Jersey pilot! I'l have to catch up. I wonder what it would be like in Austin...

Dallas seems more appropriate for the show, don't you think?

Amy, you're so right about the Real Housewives of Dallas! If Bravo comes to Texas, that's the first place they're headed. The hair/the nails/the unironic, enormous purses.

Unless. A Real Housewives of San Antonio/Seguin. :) That would be Emmy-winning, don't you agree??

Just a tip, but they are starting to film the Housewives of Austin today.
