OLA PODRIDA
8 p.m. Vino's.

UPDATE: Just got word that this show has been canceled because of the death of a close friend of the band.

Ola Podrida is the brainchild of one David Wingo, a musician and film scorer who's worked on films by David Gordon Green and Little Rock native Jeff Nichols. Wingo soundtracked much of Nichols' critically acclaimed film "Mud," which, unless you were living under a rock, you already know was mostly filmed in Arkansas.

Wingo has collaborated with his fellow Austin dwellers Explosions in the Sky for Green's upcoming film "Prince Avalanche" (starring Paul Rudd). His latest long-player is "Ghosts Go Blind," out last week on Western Vinyl. Check out the track "Staying In" after the jump.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.

    Like most folks I know around here, I am really influenced by and enthusiastic about all sorts of music. From electro and house, to reggae and dub, golden age hip hop, 80's EBM, soul, any heavy metal that references the devil, gamelan music, equestrian jazz, hardcore whale songs, machinery noises, you name it, if it's good I'm into it.
