On Tuesday night, The Raveonettes headlined a gig at The Parish on Sixth Street. Supporting their great new record, Pretty In Black, the band mixed a variety of classic 50’s pop and fuzzed-out 70’s garage-punk. Is it any wonder that they have guest spots from both Moe Tucker (Velvet Undergound) and Ronnie Spector (The Ronettes) on the album?
(The Peels open up the show at The Parish, playing some songs from their new self-titled album.)
(Myself and Nick Shuley, hanging by the bar and the merch table. Nick is one of the local Sony/BMG Music reps. I’ve actually been working with Nick since I was the music editor at The Daily Texan, and he’s one of the best… and no, I do not know how some weird white light thing popped up on my shirt.)
(Next up was Autolux, delivering some space-rock jams from their recent release, Future Perfect.)
(Between sets upstairs, folks could come outside and sample some sounds from “The King of Sixth Street,” one of the fixtures of the famous strip of clubs.)
(Sharin Foo of The Raveonettes takes the stage and gets the crowd going early on.)
(Sharin’s musical other half, Sune Rose Wagner, lends a hand on The Parish stage.)
(The Raveonettes blend covers of oldies like “My Boyfriend’s Back” with their own, blissed-and-hissed rock tunes.)
