The space they were playing in was a converted garage that now operates as a specialty burger joint.
The band rocked as hard as groups half their age - and not surprisingly - with the touch that only comes from the countless miles traveled from 1990 until now.
Two years with The Wedding Present the cleverly named Pepe Le Moko adds style and female vocals to the mix.
Despite their longevity the bands appeal continue to reach a youthful audience.
Meanwhile the band rocked out many tracks from their latest album "Valentina"
Dual vocal harmonies to match instrumental intensity
Boys rockin' out hard
Post show, it was a pleasure to have chat with the legend that is David Gedge
The group was in great spirits as they hung around and took photos with their fans.
Never one to pass up a golden opportunity, one more photo was taken for good measure.
But now it was time to head on over to the Metropolis Pool Party
The band onstage as we arrived was a female fronted gothic rock outfit out of Tuscon called Blind Divine
The had a great sound and look and set the tone for a great afternoon of live music.
Next up was my good friends from New York City - the heavy hard rock band Grandfather
The boys sound has evolved in seriously positive directions since I first became aware of them over a year ago.
Its a heavy rock show they now deliver. The songs are more compact, yet explode with an even bigger intensity.
Following them was the northern California dreamgaze trio Between The Cities Are Stars
I had been listening to their tracks for a while now and was very much looking foward to catching them live.
I'm happy to report their live show delivered the same quality as the recordings I've been listening to.
Super awesome dude Alex Hernandez had the right guitar sound down on this day
The band played a tight set on a late Austin afternoon that was perfect for the moment.
Catching up with the group after their set, it was a pleasure getting to know them.
Heather is not only super cute, but super sweet too
Of course Alex is a proud bay area Giants fan.
More Friday fun to follow!
