It’s no secret. It’s not telling tales. The Happen-Ins know how to party. This is rock ‘n roll, for crying out loud. You should expect no less.
The best line your humble Austin Music Minute maven has heard about the summertime this year is from The Happen-Ins. They’ll tell you they’re surviving the heat by making heat. They like to keep things messy by blurring the lines between classic and contemporary genres, taking the grittiest parts of blues, rock, and R&B, shaking it all up and keeping it dirty. Make rock reckless and wild, the way it should be.
It looks as though the band is focused on new music and planning some tour dates for next year. Meanwhile, be sure to see The Happen-Ins play tonight at The Continental Club, 1315 S. Congress Ave. The bill includes a set by another great bunch of hoodlums, Grape St., and The Badgers. Fierce. The music starts at 10 p.m. Be there.
