So Ready

Posted by on Jun 29, 2021

Lola Tried‘s 2018 self-titled release is worth repeated listens to get to know the band’s far-ranging dynamic. And while you’re at it, make time for their 2017 release Popsicle Queen. Across the board, you’ve got pop-rock with all wires and nerves exposed, every detailed epoch of guitar-shredded realization or slightly mellower reckoning all surfaces in full confrontation.¬† Vocalist/songwriter Lauren Burton understands that restraint has no place in these moments of release. Say it out loud. In your face, jerks.

If ever a band was ready to return to live music, it’s Lola Tried. Take a quick peek at their Instagram for a video preview of the ferocity they bring to the stage. Then catch them tomorrow night, Wednesday June 30, at the Magic Rockers of Texas¬†residency show at Hole In the Wall, 2538 Guadalupe. Doors open at 8 p.m., and Casey Barnes‘ musical head trip I’d Die For Lo Fi kicks off the night at 9 p.m.

Holy hell, this rules.
