This sold-out showcase pairs alt-pop from Palm Beach with Austin’s most notorious desert prog. Could this concert be any more random? Probably not, even if it came straight from your iPod shuffle. However, that won’t stop Surfer Blood’s kinetic energy and Twin Peaks references from charming a crowd who came to see post-hardcore band And You Will Know Us… destroy their instruments onstage. Find your yin and yang in the openers, Texan “stonergaze” trio True Widow, as they lull the crowd into blissed-out oblivion. It’s gonna be quite a show.
