KEXP Residencies: Austin & Chicago


Thanks to our members, KEXP is able to sponsor two monthly residencies, one in Austin and one in Chicago, in our ongoing effort to support music scenes outside of the Northwest.

Hot Freaks + Gorilla vs. Bear residency at The Mohawk in Austin


Along with The Onion, Dallas’ And/Or Gallery, and Austinist, KEXP, is sponsoring the Hot Freaks + Gorilla vs. Bear residency at The Mohawk each month. On the first four Tuesdays of this month, you can catch Austin band Low Line Caller and Dallas band Tree Wave.

Here’s the schedule:

June 5 – Low Line Caller (with Noise Revival Orchestra)
June 12 – Tree Wave (opening act TBA)
June 19 – Low Line Caller (with Shapes Have Fangs)
June 26 – Tree Wave (opening act TBA)
Last month’s residency, which featured Peel and White Denim, was a success (check out pics here), and at a mere $2, these shows are sure to be a great — and cheap! — follow up. For updates, check in here and with Gorilla vs. Bear, who offers these songs for you to sample:

Low Line Caller – Over the Counter Kids (MP3)
