Friday Night Pick: BLSHS, Sip Sip, Sphynx and Electric Attitude at Holy Mountain

I’ve been a fan of Houston dream pop trio BLSHS since their sly immersion into the Houston music scene last summer and their consequential explosion with their fantastic debut release in January. BLSHS captures and entrances with their synth-leaning concoctions backing front lady Michelle Miears’s dazzling and alluring vocals that hit the right notes across the board from 80s themed dance anthems to southern-tinged 808s driven soulful melodies. They’ll be making the journey to Austin with fellow Houston standouts Electric Attitude who bring a down and dirty funkiness with a dash of disco dance and more foot stomping old fashioned rock n’ roll influence than they give themselves credit for. Joining them for the night is Sip Sip, a group you have to see to believe as they lure you in with a funky soul big band sound then drop effortlessly integrated rhymes mid song. All of this leading up to the tour kickoff of Sphynx, the self-described “Queen but with two Freddie Mercurys…and also a Phil Collins” indie glam pop-rockers will be hitting the road, but before they do they’re determined for one more night to force you to hit the dance floor. DJ Darth Vena will be kicking the night off with a blast so show up early! Doors are at 9pm at Holy Mountain for $6, all ages!
