Austin’s Boy + Kite has emerged as the winner of the “Your Shot To Rock” contest sponsored by local rock radio station 101X. The day before the band released its debut album, Go Fly, Boy + Kite was hand-picked by fellow rock band, the Toadies (best known for the hit song, “Possum Kingdom”), as the winners over 60 other acts.
As part of the prize package, Boy + Kite has earned a featured slot on the Toadies yearly (and fourth annual) Dia De Los Toadies festival taking place next Friday and Saturday, August 26th and 27th, at the Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels, Texas. This year’s event will also feature (in addition to the Toadies) appearances by the Sword, the Black Angels, and other Texas favorites.
Boy + Kite will also cut three new songs with all expenses paid by The Toadies label, Kirtland Records. Todd Lewis of The Toadies has already expressed interest in producing these sessions himself. Boy + Kite’s debut album, Go Fly, and its lead single, “Think In Stereo,” are both out now. Boy + Kite brings back the essential eras of Sonic Youth and the Pixies in a way that is totally refreshing, but still evokes enough nostalgia to be timeless.

San Antonio, TX – Local782 announces Local Music Week (LMW), a part of Local Media Month and a multi-day celebration of our rich local music community. This year’s citywide event runs April 24 – through April 30, following Fiesta. LMW features many of the bands, venues and businesses who celebrate and support our diverse live music scene.
In it’s second year, this week-long, city-wide, cross-promotional event is part of the Media Justice League’s (MJL) Local Media Month, a longer month long partnership with community organizations to promote media awareness at the grassroots. Organized with two goals in mind, LMW aims to foster a greater sense of community and bring out new local music patrons. LMW highlights live original music in San Antonio just waiting to be discovered.
Local782 was established as a project of the Media Justice League to bring awareness, support, and innovation to San Antonio’s music community by uniting musicians and creating opportunity through organizing, educating, and performing. Local782 offers free workshops and coordinates quarterly mixers to further unite creative class industries.
