Wowee – we are psyched to get this starred endorsement from the Onion for our July 18 Emo’s show!

…(Schmillion) has harnessed the smoldering punk of Exile In Guyville to etch out its own fine formula. Considering Austin’s beehive of a music scene, the band’s many accolades are notable: In addition to being singled out as a “young, emerging band” by SXSW, the band has gone on to share stages with Explosions In The Sky and even Grammy-winners The Arcade Fire. Considering its wide-ranging appeal, this performance should be the perfect opportunity to get up close and person with the band—just don’t try to slip the members any drinks.

…Schmillion managed to turn in an impressive set of edgy rock that will no doubt help in continuing their upward trajectory…their blend of both ’70s underground punk and riotgrrrl energy sounds well beyond their years. It’s fitting, then, that the band covered Iggy and the Stooges’ “Search and Destroy” towards the end of their set. Singer Natalie Shea has a really solid rock n’ roll primed voice, and guitarist Frankie Blue provided some especially impressive solo work throughout. All five band members exhibited a great amount of talent, and they made a solid argument as to why they should belong among the top tier of Austin-bred bands.

Schmillion are taking over the Riot Grrl segment of that decade with great stride, even down to the hair and babydoll dresses of Babes In Toyland’s Kat Bjelland.
