Alpha Rev | Music

5 10 2010

So a couple of months ago I totally feel in love with the band Alpha Rev.  They are A-mazing!!  I first saw them at Republic Live which is downtown in the warehouse district.  That venue was so much fun!  If you an AR fan, you know about their song Colder Months.  If you don’t know the song, for shame…just playin.  Take a quick listen.  So while this song was playing, and I have no idea how they did this, Republic Live made it snow.  And I’m not talking some styro-foam mess; it was legit snow that stuck to you and melted away.  The show, as a whole, blew me away.

To put the icing on the cake, I got to meet Casey McPherson(lead vocals/guitar) and Derek Dunivan(vocals/guitar) after the show.  They were so nice and welcomed me to Austin.  We talked about their upcoming show at Nutty Brown which resulted in this post. 🙂

Being new to Austin, I was excited to check out Nutty Brown Cafe.  It’s a bit off the beaten path but it’s totally worth it.  In fact, as beautiful as the weather has been lately, I would love to go back and enjoy a nice afternoon on their patio.

The weather was great that night as well.  My friends and I got there a little before AR went on.  We started out a table towards the back and naturally migrated to the front of the stage.  This set was a lot more laid back and chill, no crazy lights or snow just AR and their music.

After the show, the guys hung out and signed autographs.  Pretty sweet:

If you haven’t already, you must pick up a copy of their cd, New Morning or download the album on iTunes.  Either way you will be VERY happy!!  The album is fantastic!

I’m super excited for their show tomorrow night at Antone’s!!  Click here for more details and ticket info.
