The Austin 100: Katie Von Schleicher

Katie Von Schleicher.

Hometown:Brooklyn, New York

Genre:Rock

Why We're Excited:Katie Von Schleicher runs her self-effacing bummer anthems through a filter of bright-eyed, '70s-style pop-rock. On albums like Bleaksploitation and last year's S***** Hits, Von Schleicher showcases a richly realized artistic persona: Her fuzzed-out songs look inward with a lacerating eye, while still deflecting enough blame to go around.
