Saturday Concert Pick: Eyes Set To Kill at Emo's

Hailing from Tempe, Arizona, Eyes Set To Kill is my concert pick for Saturday night in Austin. They are playing today at Emo's as part of the Back II School Fest featuring headliners Drop Dead Gorgeous and local dance punk sensation, Zlam Dunk. Eyes Set To Kill is one of my favorite screamo or hardcore bands that I just recently discovered last year while randomly surfing the web. I don't remember what I was searching for or how I came across them exactly, so I guess it was fate. We'll go with that for now.

Besides being bad ass musically, Eyes Set To Kill are very "easy on the eyes" with co-lead singer Alexia Rodriguez and bassist Anissa Rodriguez. Yes, they are the infamous Rodriguez sisters who only last year were featured in Revolver Magazine's "Hottest Chicks in Metal" column. I got to interview the ladies as well as their male band members about it recently. Stay tuned for that coming your way soon.

It was funny too because every guy at the show this summer couldn't stop talking about how hot these ladies were. While that may be true, I hope people can get over that and actually listen. Alexia's softer vocal stylings compliment Brandon's (lead vocals/keys) hardcore screaming very nicely. It makes them appeal to a wider audience, one that prefers hard screaming and one that prefers hardcore bands with singers. It rocks hard either way you spin it and their live show is awesome.

Checkout this clip from Austin Vida from Eyes Set To Kill at Emo's. In this clip Eyes Set To Kill performs their single "Heights" off their current album, The World Outside.

Also on the bill as I mentioned in the intro is one of my favorite local bands, Zlam Dunk. These guys have one of the best live shows in town. Their dance meets punk rock percussion style has been steadily winning over new fans with each show. Don't miss Zlam Dunk. They will only get bigger and get more expensive to see. Take advantage now.
