The lads of Austin’s Slomo Drags could write the book on how to have a good time. Their fun, light-hearted energy translates seamlessly to their rock ‘n’ roll sound, delivering a high-energy good time in the studio and on the stage. Their 2nd release Deacon Bruise (a nod in both syntax and aesthetic to Steely Dan) is the group’s debut full-length and a solid continuation of the bright rock-waxing-power-pop sound. With titles like “Guns (Baby),” “Typical Black Hole,” and “You Got a Problem? Congratulations,” the album’s satirical nature is transparent, but the band says to not read into it too closely; this is absolutely not a political commentary. It’s. Just. Fun. Catch their album release show Saturday, August 4th at Mohawk with Sometimes a Legend and Dinner with Matt Gilchrest.
