About this Event

Kolars

Rob Kolar twists and turns as he sings imaginative lyrics with a raw swagger. He spins his guitar as notes sail and scramble through the room. A presence that embodies elements of Elvis and Marc Bolan with a ragged punky edge. The magnetic, one of a kind, Lauren Brown uses her whole body as a percussion instrument, tap dancing rhythms with her feet while simultaneously playing a full stand up kit with her arms. An alluring hybrid of Mo Tucker and

Gene Kelly with a dash of Iggy Pop wildness.

Yes, there have been iconic duos before but none like this. On record KOLARS are slightly more subtle and nuanced. Rob produces and mixes the musicand has created a genre melding soundscape influenced by his film scoring. The band has inspired evocative descriptions such as “space blues," “glam-a-billy” and “desert disco." The style combines elements of new wave, blues, pyschedelia, glam, folk, disco and punk. Theproduction experiments are infused into the live show. In essence, the duo are a hybrid of modern technology and raw rock and roll.KOLARS have toured extensively across the US, Canada and Europe, playing many festivals and concerts in front of thousands.

Calliope Musicals

On Calliope Musicals’ forthcoming LP with RARR, “Color/Sweat,” lead singer Carrie Fussell lets out lyrics like she just licked the apple of Eden and likes it. Calliope’s antic live shows are a blast of secondhand glam fueled by an inclusive yet otherworldly sound. Lush keys and guitars provide propulsion for lift-off, or lube for a love-in, as Fussell’s lyrics slip in her resilient confessions. Said by the Austin Chronicle to stick out like a “sore thumb” on the city’s music scene, Calliope Musicals stands up for Austin as a frontier town for outlaws of all stripes. As Fussell sums up the group: “We came from space. We’re all going to die.”
