It’s widely known that Austin is the “Live Music Capitol of the World”. Since we’re honored with such a great music scene, Austin has bred an eclectic and acclaimed mix of bands. Alpha Rev is a great addition to the home grown musical talent in Austin.
Alpha Rev was formed deep in the heart of Texas, Austin, in 2005 by lead singer Casey McPherson. The band took off with their debut album, “The Great Thing I’ve Ever Learned” in 2007. McPherson describes his band as “the beginning of something new”. Their most recent EP proves that they are indeed “the beginning of something new”.
Funded entirely by fan donations, their most recent EP “City Farm: Roots” produced in 2011 was recorded without a label. A rare find these days, to find a band that will record an EP without a label. But Alpha Rev independently producing their EP shows that they are “the beginning of something new”.
Though Alpha Rev is Austin born and bred, they have received acclaimed national attention. And when you see their show June 8th at the Parish at 8 p.m., you will understand why their talent has been sought out by national interests. Alpha Rev‘s songs have been featured on television shows like NYC prep, Greek, Celebrity Rehab, and Melrose Place. Their music has also been used for movies such as The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and The Last Song. The band has also played with national acts including OneRepublic, the Black Crowes, Owl City, Guster, The Bravery, OK go, Sara Bareilles, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Jason Mraz.
So come and support this nationally acclaimed Austin band at the Parish on June 8th. Tickets for the show are only $12.00, and the show is all ages…. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday night in Austin!
