You should know better with Amyl and The Sniffers. Ready your earholes for some Melbourne-rooted bare-bones punk doused with diesel – and triggered by a trusty blow torch. Leave the wingeing and moaning at the door. No time for stalling or subtleties. Vocalist Amy Taylor takes you by the scruff of your neck and proceeds to show you that charisma is an understatement. The band may call it “pub punk,” but the sound and fury of it would rattle a stadium-sized crowd to bits.
This is what your AMM host gleefully refers to as an instant Austin Music Minute favorite. Don’t miss Amyl and The Sniffers tonight at Barracuda, 611 E. 7th St. Austin rabble-rousers Mujeres Podridas and Hotmom round out the bill perfectly. Doors at 9 p.m. Very recommended.
