Okay, you have to go to this. First, The Hex Dispensers are one of the great bands in Austin, and I think they’ve been vastly overlooked. It’s cool, you totally have the chance to make up for it. Then, you can also catch opening act King Tuff, who’s been around for a bit kicking out the garage-y jams. He recently put out a record with some friends as Happy Birthday, so if you remember that, you remember it being pretty solid. And, you want the icing on your cupcake? It’s absolutely FREE, all you have to do is RSVP. So, to recap, you get awesome tunes, and you don’t have to free. No excuses. Here’s a track from Happy Birthday to get you in the mood.
