If your Austin Music Minute hostess may take a moment to paraphrase, it would be this (as corny as it may be): The guitar is mightier than the sword. For proof, simply see how a rock warrior like Dani Neff of Megafauna wields it with the perfect balance of grace and fury. That alone should convince you of its power in the right hands – or, at the very least, get you rockin’.
Megafauna just released a new album, Maximalist, and, as its title might suggest, no time is wasted on anything miniscule in the rock realm. Neff has most appropriately described Megafauna’s music as “the thinking woman’s rock.” No doubt they’ll deliver the goods at their massive album release show tonight at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, on the outside stage. And really, “massive” is an understatement: Ume, Black Books and Young Tongue make this one spectacular bill. Doors open at 7 p.m. Prepare for major face-melting. Recommended.
