Saturday, Feb. 21, Austin-based indie-electro band Vinyl Dharma is performing a headlining showcase at popular new(ish) venue Vulcan Gas Company. The show may come as a surprise to some as the venue is known primarily for hosting electronic dance music (EDM) or DJ sets. If you are familiar with Vinyl Dharma, it should make complete sense for them to perform there as their music is heavy on the synth and very danceable, almost like a modern day disco.
For those not yet familiar with Vinyl Dharma, the group is composed of young Mexican-American musicians from the Rio Grande Valley area in South Texas. After moving to Austin is the mid 2000s, the group eventually made their way onto the MTV2 airwaves as a “Band On The Rise” in 2008. Last year they were a runner-up in an X-Games Battle of the Bands competition that yielded the band a $10,000 cash prize. Vinyl Dharma are performing in support of their latest release, The Lost Years.
Austin-based experimental electronica duo Sune opens the show. The duo is composed of members Audri Acuña (San Antonio) and Jonas Margraf (Berlin).
For those staying late, DJ/producer George Horn closes the night out with one of his signature DJ sets.
Vulcan Gas Company is located at 418 E. 6th Street. Doors open at 9 p.m. 21+ welcome. No cover. Visit the Facebook event page here.
