Austin, Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World, brings us live music. Woven Bones
is a garage rock trio, emphasis on rock. The band features brittle tempos that make you want to throw your head around, a bassline that's less thump than stab, and a Roky Erickson yelper out in front of a very Ramones-y band, all covered in shuddering reverb. HoZac Records describes its new album In and Out and Back Again
as "pure, raw, and ugly as a newborn jackal, squirming out of the wretched womb and ready to face the world." We take that for praise, and so should you.
The Sandwitches and the Splinters open.
