Beauty Bar News & Events

Friday, May 27 – Beauty Bar, Ruby Hornet & Ground Lift Media present ‘Digital Freshness: The Official Mayer Hawthorne After-Party’ featuring Mayer Hawthorne (DJ set), Rude One, VIPJ (10pm; $5)

Michigan-born hip-hop fan Drew Cohen and his sweet soul singer alter ego Mayer Hawthorne swing by after opening up a little show up at the Aragon Ballroom featuring Bruno Mars & Janelle Monae – maybe you’ve heard of em. Hawthorne fits the bill uptown perfectly and if the tracks off his new EP, Impressions, available now from Stones Throw are any indication, the man has diverse, and impeccable taste. Putting his own spin on classic tunes by ELO and the Isley Brothers as well as selections by Chromeo and Jon Brion on the new EP, Hawthorne continues to come across slick and meticulous, reveling in the elegant sounds of early Seventies tracks by Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes while working in decidedly modern touches. Hawthorne and Co., roll through the after party tonight and will be sharing tuneage duties with Rude One and VIPJ.

Monday, May 30 – Love Inks and Lion Limb (7pm; free)

You love her but she loves him and he loves somebody else. Austin, TX’s Love Inks knows all about amore and on the ten tracks of minimalist, bare-bones pop on their debut LP E.S.P., they tackle romance and love through dreamy hooks and torch-burning haze…yeah yeah. Locals Lion Limb are no slouches in the heart-felt department either – dark and ominous and called by various outlets around the city, “good good good,” “awesome,” and “infectious,” they should do a-ok in setting the mood for this early free Monday show.
$3 drafts, $4 well
