On Friday, April 20, Red River Noise (Austin Vida’s sister site) will be presenting their monthly showcase featuring blues-rock band Amplified Heat at Swan Dive. The Austin-based trio is a rock and roll family that consists of Colombian brothers Jim (guitar/vocals), Gian (bass) and Chris Ortiz (drums). Their jaw dropping, rip your face off style is reminiscent of classic rock bands like Cream or Iron Butterfly. Amplified Heat are currently performing in support of their latest album, On The Hunt, and take the stage at midnight.
Co-headlining will be Austin-rock band Scorpion Child. A perfect compliment to Amplified Heat, Scorpion Child also have a vintage throw back sound reminiscent of bands like Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. A local favorite of Haydn Vitera, Scorpion Child will win over anyone who loves rock and roll. Scorpion Child rock at 11 p.m.
Austin-based blues-rockers Professor Cowboy & the Space Crazies open. Swan Dive is located at 615 Red River. All ages are welcome. Doors open at 9:00pm. Admission is $6. Visit the official event page on Facebook here and on Do512 here.
