One of the newest up-and-comers to shake up the local scene is ultra-fab glam-punk outfit Lord Friday the 13th, featuring siblings Sloane Lenz and Felix Lenz. Just add having a band to their already full roster, which includes modeling, acting, art and fashion (Sloan is a designer with her own fantastic and whimsical line).
La familia Lenz has had their band for just under a year, but are making headway with this magnificent DIY aesthetic, a renegade blend of dirty glam/punk/rock, and a rotating cast of badass talented musicians (Jon Fichter of Sweet Spirit and Hong Kong Wigs; producer Frenchie Smith). And it looks as though a new album is on the not-too-distant horizon, if the band’s recent chat with Johnny Goudie on How Did I Get Here? is any indication. Let’s hope that’s the case.
More to come from these movers and shakers. Truth be told, your Austin Music Minute maven is one smitten kitten. Don’t miss Lord Friday the 13th when they play tonight at The Electric Church, 5018 E. Cesar Chavez. They join Houston psych rockers Cactus Flowers and Central Pennsylvania-based rockers Split Pistols on the bill. Doors at 9 p.m. So recommended.
