Chomp Those Teef

Posted by on Aug 20, 2013

It’s only rock ‘n’ roll, but we like it. Yes, we do. English Teeth serves as a reminder of why – loud, fun and in your face.

Not a single person in this Austin-based quartet is English, but they are greatly inspired by several British Invasion bands like The Stones, The Kinks, and The Who, while being equally as inspired by rockers like The Velvet Underground and The Stooges, and contemporary acts like The Kills. The guys have dubbed their sound “Texas indie Britrock,” pretty much a straight up, full-blown, rocket-fueled rock ā€˜nā€™ roll party injected with pop.

English Teeth will be tearing up the stage at Club DeVille (900 Red River) on Tuesday nights for a special residency called Teef Tuesday, in partnership with local independent publishing company Write Bloody, highlighting some of the best local rock acts around. Tonight, they share the bill with Under the Sun and The Rare Birds. Doors open at 8 p.m.

Next week, it’s Screamin’ K Phillips and The Concho Pearls and Dustin Welch; then it’s The Astronaut Suit and Nic Armstrong on September 3; and wraps up with The Memphis Strange and Texas Never Whispers on September 10. Really great stuff all around. Recommended.
