I had three articles published in the latest issue of UWeekly (Feb. 15 issue). Sorta not intentional. I was working on one that was postponed for this issue (Neonbeard/Tea Farm), picked up an article (Beauty Ballroom), and then we needed a Q&A (Click-Clack). I ended up having a busy/stressful weekend, but really, when does that not happen?
New venue glams up East Riverside
Beauty Ballroom joins Emo’s East in providing more live music
Austin’s music scene has gained another venue. Although it’s a familiar name, Beauty Ballroom is located on the same block as Emo’s East on East Riverside Drive.
Hip-hop act goes solo
It was an Apple product that motivated Click-Clack, also known as Eric Mikulak, to start working with hip-hop. After his mom bought a Macintosh computer, he started messing around with GarageBand and made his own beats and recorded his own songs. Now he’s getting ready to release his first record Housework on Feb. 17 at Beauty Bar.
Spreading the music
Record label and recording studio debut in Austin
It’s Saturday night on Feb. 11 and Jared Marshall, Brandon Maguire and Abbey Lane are celebrating with their friends along with food and music.
“We just actually did it. We followed through,” said Lane.
The three were celebrating the official launch of Tea Farm Recordings and Neonbeard, a recording studio and record label run and owned by Marshall and couple Maguire and Lane, respectively.
