Your Austin Music Minute maven sometimes jokingly warns you, tongue-in-check, that certain blasts of music are not for the faint of heart. But that’s the kind of cardio jolt you want and need from Austin-based electro-punk powerhouse BLXPLTN. Time to embrace it, faint heart and all. And the time is now for staying woke.
Do not miss BLXPLTN taking over the space and ruling it tonight at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River. The line-up includes post-punk power trio Hi Gene, triple awesome psych-surf punks MAMIS, and purveyors of nervous melodies who honor the vitriolic godhead lionesse, Pataphysics.
So, yeah. Family night. The music launches like stardust at 9 p.m. Very recommended.
