The following is not an exaggeration: After KUTX Artist of the Month Black Pistol Fire‘s recent performance in Studio 1A, your Austin Music Minute host’s ears were ringing hard, practically deaf. No, wait – it wasn’t even during the actual live performance; that was only the sound check. Guitarist/vocalist Kevin McKeown and drummer Eric Owen are a high-volume maelstrom of rock/blues/punk energy at ear-bleeding levels, and Don’t Wake the Riot has the dynamic duo amping things up even more.
It’s time for an album release party, and Black Pistol Fire is ready to unleash the beast tonight at Emo’s, 2015 E. Riverside Dr. Doors open early at 8 p.m. And please…please, for the love of the salvation of any bit hearing you have left, do NOT leave the earplugs at home.
You’ve been warned. Recommended.
