Here’s what you need. A sweaty embrace from a high-octane set by Starcrawler as they draw you into the chaos, a palpable electricity bristling from the stage as you instantly realize why vocalist Arrow De Wilde has rightly earned praises like “Bowie-esque.” This time, De Wilde and crew amplify their punk aura with She Said – their third LP, and their debut on Big Machine Records – with lightning-rod glam and classic rock vibes.
Starcrawler’s tour includes a stop in Austin tomorrow night, Wednesday Nov. 16, at Empire Control Room on E. 7th. Houston trio Subpenguin opens the show. Doors at 7:30 p.m.
