Weekly Wooot - Pure Ecstasy


A jam packed week of shows with Battlehooch at Rickshaw Stop Tuesday, the previously profiled Mi Ami at the Knockout Thursday (last show as a trio) and the previously profiled Thee Oh Sees at the Independent Saturday.

Our featured act this week, however, is Austin's Pure Ecstasy. While their reverb-drenched sound may not quite be new territory for the blog crowd, Pure Ecstasy's dreamy take on pop actually manages to stand out amongst the ever-crowding field of fellow hyped lo-fi acts. For proof, look no further than the trio's shockingly consistent string of 7" and cassette releases -- if they bring the same type of quality songwriting and raw production to their soon-to-be-released full length, you can expect their debut to appear on endless best of lists come December. You can catch Pure Ecstasy and their excellent fellow Texas-based tourmates Sleep Over at both 111 Minna Thursday and Amnesia Friday -- be sure to check the list below for full show details.

As always, there are plenty of other show options this week including the previously profiled Tussle at Eagle Tavern Thursday, comedic legend Neil Hamburger at Hemlock Saturday and the previously profiled Maus Haus at Rickshaw Stop Saturday.
