Twin Peaks and SMiiLE Get Barracuda Heated For Hot Luck

Hot Luck Festival, Austin’s newest attraction combines the best culinary minds in BBQ with some of the best talent in music. Courtesy of local smokehouse guru Aaron Franklin and Mohawk owner James Moody, Friday night brought Chicago indie-rockers Twin Peaks to Barracuda.

Kicking off the evening was Austin’s own SMiiLE, gave the early crowd something to dance to with their uptempo energy. Led by frontman Jake Miles, SMiiLE’s positive message gives off a sense of euphoria making it impossible not to…well…smile and enjoy yourself. Beautiful harmonies from vocalists Annie Long and Mary Bryce paired with theatrical choreography made for one of the most fun live shows in the city.

With the energy bursting inside the venue, Twin Peaks took the stage to an ignited crowd ready to party. The attitude for the midwest rockers combines the raw chaos of punk and thrash with soulful array of guitar-driven indie rock songs. Crowd surfers soon filled the air and Lone Star beer started flying with everyone having a good time. Tin Peaks’ set seemed more like a Beastie Boys house party in the mid 80’s fueled with alcohol, sweat, and cigarettes.

Cutting through tracks “Holding Roses”, “Making Breakfast” and “Shake Your Lonely” their set gave something for everyone to sing along with. Twin Peaks definitely has a hardcore fan base here in Austin and it showed Friday night.

Check out some photos from the set below and make sure to catch SMiiLE and Twin Peaks when they come to your area.
