Creatura is ready to deliver their first beast of an EP this week


The songs on Open the Door were almost entirely live recordings with “very few overdubbing sessions.” As such, they give an excellent indication of the powerhouse that is Creatura in concert. A band with a unique ability to collaborate fluidly and slide gently from challenging chaos into elegant order, Creatura has become one of the most exciting live acts in San Anto.

On Friday, a special affair for SA/Austin psych-rock, they’ll perform amid a host of other local, like-minded notables in celebration of the EP release. Austinite lo-fi outfit Low Times and SA’s shapeshifting and heavy Flower Jesus will also be celebrating the release of their new split EP Cosmic American Music. You’ll need to check out the progressive and cinematic sounds of SA’s Crown, the downright freaky and folk-infused experiments of Antique Sunlight (a Flower Jesus offshoot) and the jangly tie-dyed-dream grooves of Austin’s The Wolf as well. Come to think of it—you’ll wanna catch all of these bands. Eat your brownies and get there early.

Creatura feat. Low Times, Flower Jesus, Crown, Antique Sunlight, Coyote Sings, The Wolf, The Rich Hands and more
