YGG x AON Presents Missions, Lean Hounds

This Tuesday (July 17) Austin, TX lends a little of its legendary “weirdness” to DC for the second round of the YouGotGot and AllOurNoise concert series. Throwing down at the Baron in Dupont Circle is a doubleheader of rising Austin electronic acts, featuring Missions and Lean Hounds.

Headlining the evening is Missions, the project of Austin-based beatmaker Josh Mills who uses a fusion of analog and digital machinery to make synth experimentations.

To add to the otherworldliness of Missions’ live shows, his sets are accompanied by visual art courtesy of collaborators VIDKIDZ, and their lasers and projections serve as perfect counterparts to Mills’ futuristic beats. The Missions/VIDKIDS team have leant their technicolor stage show opening for acts like Yeasayer, John Maus, and Matthew Dear.

Also appearing is Lean Hounds, fellow Texans whose funky, tribal-influenced brand of electronica is more euphoric than Missions’ gloom ‘n’ doom approach. The band recently completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to make their current tour a reality, supporting their new 7’’ “Jaylee” out this summer on Pau Wau Records.

The electronic dreams go down Tuesday at the Baron, located in the old Brickskellar building, which offers a binder-thick Bible of beer selections, from craft brews to cheap cans. Figuring out which obscure beer pairs best with heavy synths is up to you.
