- Hey! Guy on the left! Someone is taking a picture!
Orlando might be a great spot for Disney-related jobs, but it’s basically a rock ’n’ roll wasteland. With little happening in Florida, singer-guitarist Andrew Burr relocated to Austin to pursue his musical dreams. He formed the Woven Bones
, who have perfected their Cramps-informed psych-punk over a succession of singles and last year’s The Minus Touch EP
. The trio recently released its debut album, In and Out and Back Again
, and Burr’s snarling, growled vocals are all over it. He slobbers over the fuzzed-out “Half Sunk Into the Seats” and “If It Feels Alright.” It’s kinda like what the Velvet Underground would have sounded like without John Cale and with shittier equipment. There’s a gratifyingly familiar quality to most of the album’s songs. When a band hits on a winning formula, there’s little shame in overworking a groove. If you’re into snarl and fuzz, the Woven Bones have plenty on tap. Woven Bones, CCR Headcleaner, Puffy Areolas, and Rubella, play Now That's Class at 10 p.m. Tickets are $5.
