Thursday: Jimmy Willden EP Release Party
Tuesday, singer-songwriter Jimmy Willden debuted his new solo EP. Thursday, he’ll share it House of Rock with his EP release party. He’ll be joined by Lady Katherine and Steven James. Doors are at 7:30 p.m. “Melodies of the Aftermath” features songs about the back and forth of being in a relationship, and the downward spiral of love, Willden told the Caller-Times. Willden said he felt he finally had a cohesive story of songs for a solo release. “I feel like I’ve grown and come full circle and am writing songs that say what I want to say. One of the songs ‘Smoke’ I feel was a gift given to me. It’s a song that transcends me and can speak to everyone.” His plan is to release a full album by late spring.
Friday: Andrew WK
Andrew W.K. brings the hard-rocking party to House of Rock on Friday with Yip Deceiver and IAYD. Doors are at 9 p.m. Andrew W.K. is the King of Partying. Infamous for his bloody nose, famous for his high-life attitude, beloved for his songs like, “Party Hard,” “We Want Fun,” and “You Will Remember Tonight,” Andrew’s goal is to use all forms of entertainment to create feelings of pure joy, fun, love, freedom and possibility — and to rock hard. The tag-team all-analog dance duo Yip Deceiver broadcasts sexxed-up jambox jaunts and lights club floors ablaze at home in Athens, Georgia, and beyond.
Saturday: Sideshow Tragedy
Raw rock ‘n’ roll will be served up Saturday at House of Rock, featuring Austin duo The Sideshow Tragedy, Dead Mockingbirds (Dallas rock ‘n’ roll trio) and The Golden Meanies (Corpus Christi garage rock). Doors are at 9 p.m. The Sideshow Tragedy offers up a dark, murky, glorious slab of garage, blues and rock. The duo’s songs are collection of raw energy and focused poetry, hitched together like old rail cars hurtling non-stop from the Deep South to the East Village.
