"...This week, Dikes of Holland play three shows at Beerland, the venue they've been trashing regularly since the band's inception in 2008, plus their official SXSW showcase at BD Riley's and a day party at the Longbranch Inn...."

"...Immersed in music as a photographer before getting onstage herself, she notes an upswing in female musicians in Austin over the last five years. Liz Herrera, of Dikes of Holland, Kay Odyssey, and ¿Qué Pasa?, notes the same increase over the eight years since she moved to town...."
"...It's the Fifth of July at Trailer Space Records, and nobody in Dikes of Holland can find bandmember Phillip Dunne...."
"...Cupid strikes twice. Last week’s Valentine’s Day special re-airs today with another dance from a line of coupled-up locals: Octopus Project, Dikes of Holland, Ume, and East Cameron Folkcore...."
"...Somehow, I only got to hear Dikes of Holland's self-titled debut last week, but I wish I'd heard it earlier. Mucky, murky Texas psych stomp that's great for breaking things to..."
"...That’s the essence of Brooklyn’s the Men, a torrential psych-punk outfit that combines the abrasive noise of the Touch & Go Records canon with Grinderman’s feral “No Pussy Blues” – all feedback and fury. The fivepiece, two guitarists and a slide guitarist/keyboardist, has a revolving frontline that like Austin’s Dikes of Holland only gets better with every turn...."

"...Seeing as this week's Chronicle cover pays tribute to Blondie's third album, 1978's Parallel Lines, we asked the group's iconic frontwoman Deborah Harry for her thoughts on bands such as the Dikes of Holland acknowledging the New York punk and New Wave innovators. "That's how we put ourselves together: Admiration or trying to learn from whatever we liked..."
"...10pm, Ten0ak Local treasure Sara Hickman could be our version of Beck: A hard-to-classify singer-songwriter who spans genres from children's music to the Beatlesque psych-pop cloaking a vicious putdown on 2013's Shine, "Selfish Freak." Even her vintage bubblegum evinces a strong eroticism ("Tasty Sweet"). It's all so artfully warped yet still indescribably sweet; Hickman manages to always be no one but herself. Tim Stegall Dikes of Holland..."
"...Moments of snarled doom or corrosive thrash are mixed in, but it's mainly just pure-blooded hardcore, and last year's "Awake" 7-inch came pretty damn close to perfection. – Luke Winkie Dikes of Holland..."
"...Burning desire this early morning had built up since SXSW from a redhead in full cranial windmill on our cover. Locals inspiring Matador Records to go national with an Austin punk sampler, Dikes of Holland practice the Red River seizure a lot more frequently than the Rolling Stones roll into Zilker Park, but the Ramones chanted it best: gimme gimme shock treatment...."
