As April comes to a close, it seems that The Vapor Caves are also bringing Shelter in Caves! to a close as well. For what could be the final episode, BoomBaptist and Yadira Brown shared a new song or two, took dedication requests from the viewing audience, and even shared a recipe for a special margarita. While it is possible that the duo may extend their run into May, nothing concrete has been announced yet, but fingers crossed, we will continue to get content from the two in this format as long as shelter in place is a thing. Until then, check out the existing episodes, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for all to enjoy!
Week three of Shelter in Caves, a weekly hour-long stream brought to you by the Austin-based electrofunk outfit The Vapor Caves, was all about sharing new songs and fielding questions from the scenes. Other than slight technical issues on Instagram, the stream was wildly successful, with the new songs shared not only sounding great, but getting folks excited for what the band has scheduled for release at some point in the future. If you’re not already hip to Shelter in Caves, check it out every Tuesday night on your favorite social platform at 6 PM CST.
With BoomShakaLaka right around the corner, it’s no surprise that BoomBaptist took the opportunity to do a special solo set for episode two of Shelter In Caves. After celebrating his birthday the day prior, Boom jumped online to share new and old tracks, answer questions, and generally bring entertainment to the multitudes of us forced to shelter in place. The Vapor Caves host Shelter In Caves every Tuesday during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it streams everywhere, so check it out live if you can, and find a replay if you can’t!

With varying degrees of ‘shelter in place’ rules in effect all over the nation, many artists have been forced to become inventive with presentation and performance methods. The Vapor Caves, who have always been ahead of the curve in terms of content, decided to take the opportunity to turn the internet into their broadcast network by creating Shelter in Caves, a web series featuring live performances of their music and sketches created by the duo and their collaborators. BoomBaptist and Yadira Brown are natural entertainers with great chemistry, and they really make the program work, with episode one even including the premier of a brand new song. With the first episode completed and more to come, I’m certainly looking forward to what’s in store. The episodes air on Tuesday nights across all streamable platforms, so if you’re interested in catching the show, follow The Vapor Caves wherever you watch your social media videos, and support your local creatives!
