Okay, first things first -- tonight local indie-oddballs Bring Back The Guns are playing up at The Proletariat with an extremely weird/freaky/etc. band called The Show Is The Rainbow, and going solely by my repeated listenings to the not-yet-officially-released (October's when it drops, I believe) BBTG disc, Dry Futures, it's gonna be a badass show. Granted, I've seen these guys play numerous times, and a lot of the songs on Futures sound awfully familiar, but it's still a hell of an album; well worth the really, really long wait, honest. We've just put a review of it up, so check it out here if you feel like it.
As an added bonus, the show also includes Houston Press Music Award-destroyers The Dimes and some band from Austin I don't know called The Always Already. Oh, and here's the catch: it's a happy hour show. Meaning that it's early, as in "starts at 7PM." Perfect for all the old lamers like me who can't stay up late at night any more...
Beyond the BBTG disc, by the by, we've also got a new batch of reviews online as of this afternoon, including a review of the cool, cool, cool Something Fierce/The Hangouts split-7" I've been yearning for lo, these many moons. Seriously, I've needed to own my very own copy of "Teenage Ruins" literally since the first time I heard it on the band's Myspace; it rocks like a long-lost retort to the Undertones' "Teenage Kicks," if it were slammed into the ground by, say, The Adverts. (That's good, trust me.) Anyway, read the dang review; here's the links:
