Headlights & Lionel Richie

South Austin is home to a growing number of eclectic independent establishments. A short cruise down South 1st can cure any craving, whether it is coffee, art, fashion or your favorite indie band’s new EP. At End of an Ear Records, you can find obscure artists and albums, buy tickets to upcoming shows at Emo’s, check out local art, and see free live performances right there in the shop! (B.Y.O.B.)

Yesterday, Pompeii and Headlights played sets in the shop for an audience of less than 30 people. Headlights vocalist Erin Fein is absolutely adorable and her passion and energy are captivating. Not much taller than the keyboards in front of her, she stood on her toes as if her black Vans were ballet slippers.

The End of an Ear site quotes, “We hope to become the record store you've always dreamed about.” I say, throw in some Loggins & Messina LP’s and a life-size Lionel Richie cut-out (circa 1982 with yellow leggings and Jeri Curl) and you've done it!
