There’s no dial to turn down the searing sexiness. You’ll just have to brace yourself. CHASCA has steadily built a hardcore following in their hometown of San Marcos, in Austin and parts beyond through a distinctive, outrageous blend of rock, glam and cabaret fabulousness that would make Minnelli proud. Just kick up the rock ‘n’ roll theatrics and glam flair an extra notch. It’s as if Dr. Frank N. Furter possessed the show, hijacked the mothership, and hightailed it back to transsexual Transylvania with light speed fueled by T Rex, New York Dolls, and a dash of Queen‘s soul fire.
There’s no holding CHASCA back as they celebrate the release of their new album, Barbarians, with a huge release party tomorrow night at the Mohawk, 912 Red River. And it seems it’s a double-release party, paired with Austin-based madcap gypsy punks The Flying Balalaika Brothers and their new album, Panorama. Foot Patrol starts out the night. Doors open at 9 p.m. Recommended.
