It’s a citywide celebration as Austin Music People’s United We Jam has their triumphant return! There is a plethora of great lineups no matter what participating venue you duck your head into, but if you want to get the best bang for your buck there’s only one place to park your butt all day. Show hopping between Holy Mountain and Red 7 has never been more fun or more encouraged as the venues team up for an epic day of jamming. If Otis The Destroyer’s continuous domination of the local scene, Lowin’s so far flawless spree of churning out head bopper after foot stomper, the appearance of Houston psychedelic-soaked pop rockers Featherface (who we’re determined to declare Austin’s own) and an endless list of Austin’s best including the impressive Slomo Drags isn’t enough to convince you to hightail it downtown then we’ve got one more treat for you. Spiritual Wives are staging their triumphant return after remaining relatively absent since the spring. Their impressive pedigree of Tia Carrera, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead and Pack Of Wolves has come together to create an unapologetically ’90s sound that flickers between gorgeous harmonies while coating everything with an earthy grunge sound. You can catch all of this in the front row yourself for 5 stinkin’ bucks. You will not find a better deal anywhere. See ya at Red 7/Holy Mountain at 8pm!
