KUTX is currently featuring the track “Better Than A Hit” from Cotton Mather‘s latest release, Wild Kingdom, but your humble Austin Music Minute host also remains completely smitten with previous release Death of the Cool, particularly with “Close to the Sun” in all its dark-toned, ultra-cool, hook-laden glory. Insert drool here. But this coolness has been the linchpin since the band’s beginnings in the ’90s. No shortage of guitars, and front man Robert Harrison always ruling on the riffs.
It’s a glorious night for a Cotton Mather show, which is exactly what’s happening tonight at 3Ten, 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the music starts at 8:15 p.m. with Slomo Drags, followed by Wiretree. A bill made in rock/pop heaven. Very recommended.
