The Movies / Division Day @ the Echo [FREE] - For college rock/new wave fans. The Movies are a very beloved local rock band (especially by people who know all the local bands). I highly recommend the download. Division Day plays the last night of their March residency.
Download The Movies' "Rock in the Slingshot"
Download Division Day's "Tap-Tap, Click-Click"
The Brokedown @ Viper Room [?] - For Wilco/AM rock fans. An up and coming local band that just played a few shows at SXSW. Catchy sunshine rock.
