OBN IIIs and Shitty/Awesome
10 p.m. Saturday
Blue Note Lounge
2408 N. Robinson
Austin, Texas-based garage musician Orville Bateman Neely stays busy. He produces records for the likes of The Strange Boys, drums for A Giant Dog, co-fronts Bad Sports and runs sound at Austin venue Beerland.
Oh, and currently on its first national tour, his own band, OBN IIIs, plays 10 p.m. Saturday at The Blue Note Lounge.
With raucous melodies, high energy and tracks like “Communicated to Death” and “If the Shit Fits” — both from last year’s album, The One and Only — the crowd is all but guaranteed a crazy good time.
Opening the show is Shitty/Awesome. The Norman band is the subject of the rockumentary short The Shittiest Movie Ever Made, which premieres at 9 p.m. one night before at The Exchange, 700 W. Sheridan, as a part of the deadCENTER Film Festival.
From local filmmaker Nathan Poppe, Shittiest Movie chronicles the release show for S/A’s self-titled debut record last August — and the emerging garage-punk scene at large — in what promises to be the loudest entry of the festival. The trailer alone is chock-full of fireworks, beer showers, men’s underwear, guitars and partial nudity.
