Red River Rock Revival

Red River will be lousy with 90’s rock aficionados and purveyors tonight, both local and national. We’ve got The New Year and Shellac at Emo’s and Sons of Hercules and Jesus Christ Superfly at Beerland.

The New Year is the most recent project from the Kadane brothers of mid-late 90’s act, Bedhead, whose three albums were recently re-released by Touch N Go, but were originally released on Austinite King Coffey’s awesome Trance Syndicate label. This is Shellac’s first appearance in Texas. Rumor is that Steve Albini hates playing the South. I’m still kicking myself for missing a chance to see them in 1995 in NYC, so this is my chance to redeem myself. They haven’t released anything new since 2000’s 1000 Hurts, but no matter. I’ll be interested to see if there’s new stuff mixed in with material from that and the two previous albums, At Action Park and Terraform.

It’s a 15 year anniversary show for Jesus Christ Superfly. The Sons of Hercules have been around for roughly the same amount of time with various line up changes, though the Sons have had the current line-up for quite some time. I’m not sure who’s in JCS at this point, but I’ll probably stop by after the Shellac show as it appears it’s going off early, 10pm for The New Year and 11pm for Shellac. Is Steve still drumming for them?

We can all compare how many pounds and wrinkles we’ve added since the Cannibal Club days. Who’s with me?
