Date 12/13/13
Location Mohawk
Doors 7pm
Tickets $12 @ Que App

Defunct Austin band Cruiserweight broke up back in 2010 so it’s odd to see their name headlining a show at Mohawk on Friday night.  After a bit of research, I don’t see much information about the show so I assume it’s just a one and done type of thing.  The lineup is of course loaded with other local talent and Cruiserweight spin offs including Residual Kid, The Baker Family, Other Lovers, and Adam and the Bullshark.  I was somewhat of a closet fan of Cruiserweight back in the day and I think I’ll fork over the measly door price to reminisce.  For so many bands on the bill, including an old Austin vet, I recommend you do the same.
