Schmillion at Free Press Summer Fest

geez, it was a fun road trip to Houston to play the very cool Free Press Summer Fest. Big thanks to Ume and Red Bull Soundstage, FPSF and everyone that came out to see us.

We saw some of our favorite bands and stumbled on to some new ones we loved. So it was super nice to get this shout out:

One of the greatest joys of a gargantuan music event like Summer Fest is stumbling across bands you weren’t aware of and coming away much the better for it.

I made my way across the festival grounds to catch Fat Tony’s set only to realize I had ended up on the complete wrong side of Eleanor Tinsley Park.

Lucky for me it turned out, as I was able to catch the end of out-of-town indie kids Schmillion’s set. The band looked to be barely out of high school, but they played their driving, tuneful songs tighter than most groups twice their age. The lightning-quick instrument swap between bassist and drummer was a highlight, as was the “phew!” look on the bassist’s face after they pulled it off.” Joe Mathlete

See photo for blow by blow on the switch!

Schmillion heads to Houston for FPSF

Life’s pretty good right now. Schools out and we just released our new CD, Seven. And now Schmillion is heading to Houston to play Free Press Summer Fest!

We’re an official Red Bull Soundstage artist. Thanks to Lauren and Ume for believing in us and for these kind words:

Schmillion unleashes a power, passion, and talent that reinvigorates rock n’ roll and redefines where it is going. I met the girls of Schmillion when they were campers – roughly ages 12 to 13 – at Girls Rock Camp Austin. A few years later I was watching them open for Arcade Fire in front of thousands. Rock is about to witness a new revolution… it’s about time.” Lauren / Ume

If you’ll be there Sunday, catch Schmillion at 1:30 and Ume at 6:00. FPSF schedule here.

Big thanks also to Cory Garcia for this shout out:

Houston Press: Summer Fest Round Table: 9 Locals To Watch This Weekend

If you want to see the future of Texas rock, look no further than Schmillion. That’s not me going in to hyperbolic Jon Landau/Springsteen territory, either. This group of 16- and 17-year-olds have shared bills with everyone from the Bangles to Explosions in the Sky to Arcade Fire, and their age isn’t a novelty: This group is a real-deal, honest-to-god, have-the-chops-to-back-it-up rock band. If they’re this good now, it’ll be nuts to see where they are with a few more years of experience.” Cory Garcia / Houston Press

Schmillion with Kelley Deal, Mike Montgomery & Southpaw Jones

Lucky us! We got to play in an actual garage during SXSW with Kelley Deal and Mike Montgomery of R Ring and Austin’s own Southpaw Jones.

Big shout out to our friend Spike Gillespie for making this happen and to Hill Country Weavers for hosting the KXKP Party. [There’s a knitting joke in there, btw.] Here’s a little backstory.

Kelley and Mike were awesome to hang out with. And their music is really cool. Check out R Ring! We feel a little bad that we got to play a full set but R Ring got shut down right after the balloon animals showed up. Find out more here.
