Tonight, Golden Tea House hosts a bill designed to fill your hardcore needs. Locals Bad Energy, whose latest EP, Dead Magic, is a true instant flash of concentrated power - an example of unfiltered emotional release with ramped up yet focused instrumental leads that provide abbreviated sonic surges. (You can check it out in its entirety below). Joining Bad Energy will be Long Beach’s Stoic Violence, who recently dropped a dark, smashing record entitled Chained, and chaotic English outfit No, who are headlining the evening. Golden Tea House, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7pm, $7, All Ages - Michael Colavita

The Deli Nashville has a tendency to shy away from the country scene, by and large, as it feels that ball of wax gets plenty of attention.  However, The Deli Nashville also has a penchant for artists with personality that flirt with the boundaries of their respective genre, who are also decidedly not awful.  If they represent a good cause, all the better.  That being said, Olivia Lane is holding a fundraiser for anti-bullying foundation +Works tomorrow night at The Listening Room.  She's joined by Ben Bradford, Leland Grant and Baylor Wilson for an in-the-round performance beginning from 6-8pm.  Check out the song "You Do You" and notice how refreshingly free it is from mentions of porch swings, screen doors and being 22. -Terra James-Jura

Angel, the third album from Austin's Pure X is a remarkably immaculate 38 minutes of music, so great in fact, that it's hard to believe it was recorded in just five days.  In all its simplicity, Angel is a record that is hard to pinpoint, though the band rarely ventures off its dreamy, two-chord path.  This is due to the fact that the melancholy nature of the music is so masterfully married with lyrics soaked in sincerity and bliss and delivered without a hint of cynicism by singer Nate Grace.  What Pure X has done most successfully on Angel is hammer home a sentiment almost redundantly, to a point where listeners no longer question their conviction.  "Heaven is a feeling" could well be the overall thesis and comes as a welcomed departure from the otherwise ironic, post-modern musings we are more often exposed to.

Listen to "Heaven" and try to catch Pure X at Austin Psych Fest (May 2nd - 4th)
