Judging by the turnout last month, The Rumble is shaping up to bigger and better this year. This month in SF features our very own Grand Lake, whom I saw recently and had forgotten how good these guys are. Be sure to check them out. Supporting them are Belgium’s The Tellers and another local act, The Spyrals.

The monthly FutureSounds Rumble Tour that rolls through town every month has built a reputation of breaking hot new artists (think Band of Skulls). This October, The Rumble will trump all of that with a new venue location, Cafe du Nord, and a new concept – indie film!
As usual, the monthly Rumble tour is set to bring a stellar line up upcoming artists through San Francisco tonight Wednesday, October 6, featuring Austin, TX-based acts Sunset, The White White Lights, and Dana Falconberry. What’s new is that preceding the showcase you’ll get to see a sneak preview of the indie film, Echotone – a documentary film about the music culture of Austin, Texas that features the very bands in this month’s showcase line up. Documentary filmmaker, Nathan Christ, followed a range of indie rock bands over a two year period chronicling the indie subculture – from the bands to the venues and promoters to the city governments themselves. Wrap it all up and put a bow on it, I can’t think of a better night of audio/visual entertainment. Don’t miss it!
Holy crap! I was a little shocked to read this morning that my hometown radio station, WOXY, is relocating from Cincinnati to Austin, TX as of September 8. I can’t say I really blame them. Austin offers so much more musically than Cincinnati. It gives better access to artists and plays host to some of the best indie music festivals around. But I’m really sad about this. I grew up with this station. What the hell am I going to listen to when I make my annual pilgrimage home? My parents don’t have satellite radio in their cars.
Thankfully, they’ve thought of that and launched a free iPhone app so you can listen to WOXY on the go. It features WOXY Live and vintage channels along with the great programs we love, like Future Sounds. It’s awesome. Go get it…WOXY Radio for iPhone
