Austin’s Backroom, often the home for such touring titans as Yngwie Malmsteen and Cannibal Corpse (though sadly, not on the same bill) was the site for a terrific lineup this past Friday evening ; Houston’s K-Rino, Baton Rouge’s Young Bleed (shown above), Dallas’ Money Waters and ATX’s own Basswood Lane all for a minimal cover…and minimal useage of the inhouse dry ice machine.

Said event was presented by the same hardworking chap that brings you HoustonSoReal, which either means the few dozen persons in attendence owe him a massive debt of gratitude. Or some money.
