“Best ongoing residency” - Bluegrass Night at Radio - Austin Music Awards 2018
Local outfit Croy and The Boys are a little bit country sway, a little bit honky-tonk and a whole lot of toe-tapping good times. Frontman Corey Baum hadn’t set foot outside of his hometown Bowling Green, Ohio until, at the age of 24, he realised college wasn’t his scene; so he packed up his guitar and hot-footed it to Austin. He spent four years writing and performing solo before kicking off Croy and The Boys back in 2014. - Georgina Cook

Voted BEST WORLD MUSIC BAND in Austin for the 6 years straight – Atash combines master musicians from around the globe to create a powerful, worldly original sound that inspires people of all ages and from all walks of life to dance and commune in a celebration of life!
Spacey but not alienating, loud yet still light, painting panoramic sound against a moving melodic backdrop, Moving Panoramas make dream rock from Austin, Texas.
It all began in Brooklyn, where songwriter Leslie Sisson lived while playing in a number of touring bands. She came back to her home state of Texas to be closer to her family after navigating through a series of life changing events. This led to an array of songs that shaped the birth of the band. The debut LP One, released on Modern Outsider Records in 2015, conjured a wave of dream gaze and international acclaim.
"Annabelle Chairlegs plays out around town often, exuding polished, glitzy, Sixties-inspired rock & roll fleshed out by guitar licks straddling the line between surf-y and noir. Helmed by Mackin's strange, arresting voice, usually either a powerful belt or contorted into theatrical yelping, the band commands the stage with intense authority.” - Libby Webster, Austin Chronicle
