In Austin, many of us are looking forward to the musical acts and comedians scheduled to perform at FunFunFun Fest this year. If you haven’t made it down here to the Texas Hill Country to enjoy our magical music moments, find a way to enjoy live music in your city.

The weekends are designed for rest, relaxation, and tons of fun – enjoying music by your favorite artists in the city you love is a perfect way to spend your two-day break from work! Who knows? You may even gain more writing material than you’d expect just by having fun with friends and family at a concert.

Writing Ideas abound!

Going to FFF? Who are you most excited to see this year?

TUNE IN TUESDAY | Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice

You’ve gotten through another manic Monday but might feel a little frazzled by all the deadlines and projects due at the end of the week (or, for some of us, today). Let’s ease the stress with some tunes, shall we?

Today’s free tunes are the musical brain children of  Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice.

Heralding from San Marcos, TX, by way of Austin, Chief is one of the longest standing hip-hop artists in the San Marcos music community. A member of the well-loved San Marcos musical groups Liquid Stereo Project and The Word Association, Chief has kept the spirit of Hip-Hop alive through his original lyrical content and driving beat creations, interwoven with classic tracks on his album Permanent Record.

Free Music to Free Your Mind

Permanent Record is an album that has no other purpose than to get stuck in your head and move you, physically and intellectually. The driving yet soulful drumbeat on  “Mother of Pearl” will create a gentle ear worm for your brain, but I promise you won’t mind. Another track you’re going to dig is “Slowmega” because, like Chief says, it’s a “futuristic throwback” that you will have no choice but to groove to.

Surely, you will develop an affinity to all the tracks. When you do, show your appreciation by giving Chief a “Like” on Facebook at OFFICIAL Facebook – Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice, and tell him what you enjoyed most about his album.

A Man on a Mission to Move You

Chief is a quaternary threat as an MC, DJ, Producer, and Artist, whose weekly music and movie installments are enjoyed every Monday at Triple Crown in San Marcos, TX.

Chief is also apart of artistic and musical collaborative projects created by Exploded Drawing. These projects are experienced in Austin, TX and its surrounding areas – visit ExplodedDrawing.com for events and information.
