What You Missed at the Red Eyed Fly Last Night

Noise from 913 at Red Eye Fly

Noise from 913 at Red Eyed Fly

When I agreed to take a trip to the Red Eyed Fly last night to check out my friend Keny’s band I honestly hoped for the best, but prepared myself for the worst.  I was shocked.  These guys are genuinely talented.

Calling themselves Noise from 913, a reference to the practice spot at the Metropolis Apartments in Austin where the band rehearses, band members Keny (front man), Wes (guitar), Conner (bass) and Daniel (drums) are soulful rockers with a fun edge.  They played a quick set of original songs which lead man Keny Smith delivered with raw conviction.  He engaged the small crowd in attendance and performed as if it were packed venue, complete with witty commentary between songs.

I can’t quite put my finger on their sound, but the performance felt very genuine.  The band still loves music and the members seem to have just enough corporate pain and struggle to capture the passion that draws the listener in and conveys a powerful message.  The show ended with a Hendrix cover of Are You Experienced, to which I’m sure Hendrix himself was blazin’ up a fatty and swaying to the beat.  Be sure to catch their next performance March 11th at the Red Eyed Fly.  You won’t be sorry.
