Reformed local punks Friday, newborn Japanese equivalents Saturday.
“Eight to 10 members, 25 egos, six livers,” counts off Louisiana geetar wild man C.C. Adcock in describing swamp pop supergroup Lil’ Band o’ Gold, recently recording with Fats Domino and Robert Plant. All-stars say it all: Adcock, Dickie Landry, Warren Storm, Tommy McLain, Steve Riley, Dave Egan, Lil’ Buck Senegal, Pat Breaux. And all that glitters isn’t just LBOG, as the coyly titled “Patty Griffin & Her Driver” play sold-out shows at the Continental on Saturday and Sunday. Pssst, the “Driver” is a Led locks. – Margaret Moser
Far from being a congenial band moniker, Nazi Gold effectively suggests how provocative the Austin trio’s music is. Renegade instrument builder Thor Harris (drums) and Jeremy Steen (bass) join Quin Galavis (guitar, vocals) to shake up audiences with hard tunes that leave deep grooves in your cerebellum. Another local trio, Mirror Travel, solidifies the bill with dense, swelling jams laid down by guitar-gripping vocalist Lauren Green and a locking rhythm section. Openers Sur, Marriage, and Haints usher in the madness. – Kevin Curtin
