DASH KIZER EXPERIENCE, Rise of the White-Trash Superhero
DASH WHO? Sixpiece country-rock outfit that enjoys a good Bob Wills tune, and as you'll learn in the first two minutes or so, are damn proud to be from Texas.
HOWDY, PILGRIM: "King of Texas" begins with this John Wayne sound bite: "'Texas is a woman,' ma used to say. Get a boy raised up to where he's got some size, and there's Texas a-whisperin' in his ear: 'Come on out with me and have some fun.'"
WHO ARE THE 'GHOSTS OF AUSTIN' IN THE SONG OF THE SAME NAME? Dan Del Santo, "Mambo" John Treanor, and Clifford Antone.
WHAT DO THEY HAVE IN COMMON? All got in big trouble with the authorities for selling copious quantities of the sweet leaf.
CAN A BAND THAT QUOTES 'THE EYES OF TEXAS' ALSO SOUND LIKE THE BEE GEES? According to "Cash Flow," yes they can.
Release parties: Friday, May 16, at the Chaparral Lounge and Wednesday, May 21, at Momos.
