Falling somewhere between punk and prog, Austin’s Slomo Drags know how to twist a seemingly simple riff or lyric into a mind bending display of musicianship. No big surprise since Jackson Albracht (Guitar/Lead Vocals), Raul Alvarez (Guitar/Vocals), and Marcus Rubio (Guitar/Keys) have been playing together for nearly a decade. In 2009 the trio released a fantastic EP under the name Cartographer and proceeded to become one of the best bands in the tight knit music scene in San Antonio. After a short hiatus they reunited and added drummer Alex Ogle and bassist Adam Mason to form Slomo Drags.
Slomo Drags play Cheer Up Charlies this Saturday for their Going Out of Business EP release.
