Tonight: Followed By Static (Reviewed!) + Nervous Curtains + Antarctica Starts Here
A good one tonight up at Walter’s on Washington — Austinites Followed By Static will be playing, as will fellow out-of-townies (Dallasians) Nervous Curtains and very, very, very cool local folks Antarctica Starts Here. Beyond the fact that I’m extremely happy to see ASH playing once more (it seemed like there was a quiet period there for a while, although it may just be my short-term memory loss), I’m intrigued by what I’ve heard so far by FBS; noisy, sideways indie-rock that kinda worms its way into your head whether you want it there or not.
But hey, tonight you don’t need to just take my word for it — you can check out the brand-spankin’-new review of the band’s Demo*lition EP, courtesy of very talented SCR contributor Marianne. She does a better job of describing the thing than I do, I think, especially in my current addled state, so read away.
Oh, and I dunno much about Nervous Curtains, sadly, except that it’s apparently the brainchild of one of the members of The Paper Chase, whom I seriously love (my Myspace-listening time has been cut short lately due to large piles of actual work), but you really, really, really need to get up there early to see Antarctica Starts Here. Soul-crushing/uplifting spacegazery that drifts you off to cool (and often very sad) places you’d likely never see otherwise. Good shit — download a bunch of their stuff for free here and bliss out. Show time’s listed as 8PM, no clue what the cover’ll be…
