I posted the other day that I was going to start hitting up more bands regularly and writing features on them here at KLAQ.com. Tonight is my first night out for official feature writing for bands, and there are a lot of choices of where to go:

  • A Beautiful Mourning , Ivory Structure and Rogue Planet @ Bombardiers
  • Twilight Symphony @ The Bayou
  • Texas Roadkill @ Tanya’s Gridiron
  • King Octopus@ Kickstandz (11335 Montwood)
  • Remedy @ Handlebars
  • We B Fore @ Big Al’s
  • FM Junkies @ Hidrant Bar
  • Wrath & Gore @ 1499 Bar & Grill
  • Sublevels @ The Lowbrow Palace

I think I'm going to be hitting up Bombardier's tonight to check out A Beautiful Mourning, Ivory Structure and Rogue Planet! I'll be able to see three bands tonight and get things started solid. If you're feeling like coming out and having a beer and checking out some bands with me, that's where I'll be tonight.

Then in the next few days, be on the lookout for my features on each of these bands, and I'm hoping to include videos and photos on every one. (I'll be the tall, bald dude with the camera.) And before you ask, I'm not going to be slagging off any bands in my features. I'm going to tell you what I think they sound like, so you can go out and see them. Make up your own mind as to what you like.

Next week will be more bands, somewhere else. Let us know where your band is playing, and every week I'll be heading out with my camera, my phone and working out some beer-drinking muscles while experiencing the best music El Paso has to offer. Hit us up with your gigs, or where your favorite bands are playing and let's get them some more exposure!
