Perhaps the term “rock” is a little over-generalized. Fair enough. But it’s a reliable point of reference, and certainly not limited to just one musical genre. Many times, it refers to anything indisputably “badass” – another lovely point of reference. For example, today’s Austin Music Minute recommendation features a show with three Austin-based bands that absolutely rock.
Just a few weeks before embarking on a tour of Japan, rock ‘n’ prog badasses Megafauna top the solid bill tonight at Empire Control Room, 606 E. 7th St. Killer mad/sad-song rockers Löwin and bittersweet punk/pop purveyors ¿Que Pasa? seal the deal to perfection. Get there around 9 p.m. to catch all three. This one comes highly recommended.
