Catching Up With Mobley At Hangout Fest

When our editor here at the New Nine told me to check out Mobley at Hangout Fest, I said “Mobley Who?” Mobley, an Austin-based one-man show, just came out with “Fresh Lies, Vol. I,” an enticing upbeat musical jolt of energy that catches you by the ears and has you dancing from start to finish. Mobley refers to “Fresh Lies, Vol. I” as a song cycle rather than an album, because it’s a part of a story project that he will continue for the rest of his career.

Hangout Fest was hands down the best music festival I’ve been to thus far: the lineup, the hangs, the hospitality, THE BEACH! Everything down to the last detail was perfect and added up to a fun experience that I would never trade for anything. Driving eight hours from Houston to Gulf Shores on an incredibly tight budget was worth it.

The weather didn’t look great for Grace Mitchell’s show. It had rained all morning but it had subsided for the moment. There was no one I was more excited to see on Sunday at Hangout Fest. “Now” is one of my favorite songs this year. The hard rock edge combined with 80s synths make it so instantly catchy.
