Something Fierce & Monocles Groom Their Skinny 'Staches [1/09/2008 12:43:00 AM]:
Awesome, awesome... This coming Friday, January 11th
, at Walter's on Washington
, local old-school punk kids Something Fierce
-- who happen to be one of my absolute-favorite bands in town these days, honest -- are heading out on tour (for the first time? not sure...) with fellow badass rockers The Monocles
(whose debut 7" is a fine, fine release
), tearing up the country from here to hell & back. They're also doing this show, at least, with Shreveport's The Hoodlum Circus
and fellow locals This Year's Tiger
; I dunno a thing about the former, but I've heard the latter are pretty good, too...
To make things even better, I hear the show's also a release party of sorts for a brand-new split-7" featuring both bands. I dunno what songs're on there, but if the Fiercies' "demo" of "Where You Going" (check their Myspace) -- which is like a flashback to England in the late '70s, minus the economic depression -- is one of 'em, I've got to get me a copy.
Anyway, come on out if you can. And if you happen to not be here in the Houston area, you can also check out these guys/girl at venues across the country; they'll be blasting their way through Georgia, SCarolina, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Tennessee, & Louisiana before returning triumphantly to their smoggy, sweaty-in-January home. Oh, and it's the "Teenage Mustache Tour". Yes.
