I headed down to my first scheduled appointment - an interview with the lovely Katy Goodman and a performance by her band La Sera! Much thanks to Sarah and everyone at ForceField PR for making the arrangements.
Nice mural on the outdoor stage wall of club Red 7 during the ForceField/Terrorbird day party.
Katy and I headed out front to do a photo shoot and then an interview. That audio/video interview will appear in a later entry.
The boys of La Sera are a great bunch of guys who were easy to joke around with. They also are top-notch musicians, so it's easy to see why Katy has them in her band.
Katy cuts an adorable figure as we snapped away.
Photo shoot done, we sat down and had a nice chat about the new La Sera album - "Sees The Light"
Taking a picture with people I like - it's kinda become a habit.
Back inside, the band Forest Fire was into their set.
They had an appealing alternative rock sound
Time for the La Sera show, and the crowd packs in.
The Austin crowd enjoys the quality sounds
Next up was Brooklyn dreampoppers Widowspeak
It's a classic sound that Molly and her band delivers
Guitar riffs and textures that drive the sound
It's a harsh realm out there, but Molly and her crew know how to navigate it
Full band after the show.
More of this day to follow in the next blog!
