Chaos in Tejas 2010

Chaos in Tejas is a hardcore/punk/metal/rock festival that takes over Austin once a year. Mostly centered around Red River clubs Emo's, Mohawk, Red 7 and Beerland, the sixth annual festival takes place May 27th to the 30th, featuring more than 100 bands. Some bands fly in for one-time reunions, and some have never even played in the United States before, making it a destination spot for devout fans of underground music.

A few names playing Chaos In Tejas this year that grab my interest are Ty Segall, Riverboat Gamblers, Woven Bones, Fungi Girls, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, and Jeff the Brotherhood. Most of the shows are listed on the two print-outs above, and you can find much more info and show listings at
