Yeah, I've already blathered a bit about this, but I really, truly want folks to get out & see these guys -- The Phlegmatics are absolutely one of the coolest, most intriguing rock bands in town, grabbing hold of the Weezer geekcore torch and holding it high above their Marshall stacks. They play nerdy, angst-y songs about historical figures, kung fu-wielding friends, and sensitive guys who nobody believes aren't gay.
Here's a sample, from the Phleg's one release so far, Alumnus:
The Phlegmatics - "Funny That Way"
(Aside to the band; if you don't want this up here, just let me know & I'll yank the link back down...)
I haven't yet heard much of the band's new stuff, but tonight's the official "record kick-off party" for their forthcoming album, Billy the Starfighter Pilot vs. The Phlegmatics, over in the East End at the Frenetic Theater (which I've never been to, but which sounds interesting, at least). Here's the full info from the band themselves:
The Houston Chronicle's Ultimate Geek Band, The Phlegmatics, are preparing to release their second and possibly also critically acclaimed album entitled "Billy the Starfighter Pilot vs. The Phlegmatics", and everyone is invited to come and celebrate with us!
"When one contemplates The Phlegmatics, the words pithy, terse and raucous spring to mind…"
"They play powerful music with a punk edge and a bit of geek angst thrown in for good measure…"
"Attendance at their concerts has also been known to cure diseases and generate great wealth…"
So come out and check out the hub-bub bub!
Record Kick-Off Party
Saturday, June 27th. 8 pm.

Free + fun, loud, tuneful-yet-awkward music + early start time == good. There you go...
