Lucero, Sleepercar @ Emos 7/16
For those of you who grew up in Texas, or those of you who just like good rock music, you should know the lead singer of Sleepercar; it’s Jim Ward, formerly of At the Drive-In and Sparta. He’s been a staple in the Texas rock scene for many years, and while his new band is a little more mellow than those previous efforts, it’s still worth seeing. On top of that, you can see the countryfied post-punk of Lucero. That sounds like a great bill.
You can still buy tickets from ticketweb, and here is a Sleepercar song to boot![audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/wasting_my_time.mp3]
