San Antonio-based atmospheric indie band Pop Pistol are having a career year having dawned the cover of San Antonio alt weekly (Currrent) as the city’s “Best Indie Rock Band” this spring. Before hitting the road for multi-city tour, the group released their long awaited new album, Animal Prisms on October 24. On Saturday night fans in Austin will have a chance to see Pop Pistol at their Austin home away from home, Frank. Pop Pistol perform at 11 p.m.
Also on Saturday night’s bill are newly relocated Friday Avenue. Originally based in Brownsville, Texas, the indie quintet moved to Austin this summer to establish themselves here in the Live Music Capital in hopes of keeping the dream alive like so many before them. We introduced the band to our readers during Free Week in January and were able to capture a couple of songs from their set for our live video series. The band is currently performing in support of their latest release, Sounds of Home. Friday Avenue open the showcase at 10 p.m.
