The Launch Pad-Austin 2013: Meet AVAN LAVA
  • WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, 2013

  • Posted by: Dorit Finkel

Every day leading up to our party down in Austin (The Launch Pad) we'll be introducing you to the bands set to perform at the Knuckle Rumbler Lounge.

AVAN LAVA isn't really a band; it's more of an experience. Strongly influenced by Madonna and 90s R&B, the Brooklyn band seems to believe in dance as a lifestyle: their website states that the goal of their live show is "to get people off their phones and back on the dance floor." And with their infectious beats, heartfelt vocals, and exuberant live performance, I'd guess they usually succeed (check out our coverage of their Brooklyn show here).

Who are they? TC (Tom Hennes), Le Chev, Ian Pai, Drew Citron, Jo Lampert, Andrew Schneider

What do they sound like? Retro party anthems with sensitive soul, MGMT meets Kool & The Gang, time-warped to 1998.

Check out their video for "Sisters," a short but heartbreaking unrequited love story filmed in Puerto Rico:
