Girl's Rock Camp presents She's A Rainbow Record Release Show/Esme's Birthday Party

Girl's Rock Camp

Golden Boys

Hailing from deep in the Texas Hill Country, The Golden Boys have roots drawing deep from the window pane well of sonic and geographic kin like the 13th Floor Elevators, Sir Douglas Quintet, the Dicks and 10 million other fried honky dreamers.

" Austin 's Golden Boys proving once again that...Party rip-off bands beat Nick Cave 's silly solo shtick any day."
-Chuck Eddy, the village voice

"Another one of the choicer garage albums of late is the eponymous debut LP by the Golden Boys. Its not clear why this Texas band had to go to New Zealand for the LP, but what the heck? They have a very cracked and shakey take on raunch-hootenany-ism recalling members of the In The Red stables, as well of Memphis ' more lop-sided degenerates. There are parts of this disc that cohere into something identefiably musical, but not enough to bother us."
-Thurston Moore & Byron Coley, Arthur Magazine

"Some of their music is loud and bluesy, some of it's countrified, and the psychedelic influence sometimes comes out full force. It's raucous rock 'n' roll through and through, with all the stomping and yawping that comes with it."
– The Denton Record Chronicle

"Between the lovelorn lyricism and noisy crescendo of "Slow Down," and the wah-wah vocalism of the vintage-pop "Ooh Baby Baby," guitarists/vocalists Matthew Hoopengardner and John Wesley Coleman, combined with the efforts of drummer James Arthur, flex enough musical muscles to birth a sound of complete inimitability."
-University Star

Love Inks

"With badass-sounding tracks like "Skeleton Key" and "Blackeye" off their recently released debut album, the tracklisting for Austin's Love Inks is downright intimidating. Luckily, it takes just one listen to realize that this band is anything but. The trio (comprised of husband and wife duo Kevin Dehan and Sherry LeBlanc, along with their longtime friend Adam Linnell), masterfully crafts infectiously mellow dream pop that's far lighter than these song titles might suggest. They may have the same sparse feel as Warpaint or The xx, but throw in an added dose of Summer Camp's nostalgia, and you'll find that they've got a breathy sound all their own. But don't just take our word for it." - Nylon Mag
