Welcome to Sierra's Frostown Bandmanac. Hopefully you're ready to head out to all the shows I recommended for tonight. But first, here's some inspiration to get you in the mood.
In their new video, Fake Your Own Death, a group of guys who have lived in The Mission since you were in grade school, tare up Lone Palm, Mission Bar, Beauty Bar, and the Attic to the tune of the band's sad and hopeful new single, Tijuana. There's also definitely some Lucha Libre stuff happening toward the end of the video. All in all, it's one of the Missionest things I've seen all week.
These guys are hitting all the right marks for me: band bonding hour, cute guys in their late 30's*, the original rock'n'roll handlebar mustache, and tasty post-punk guitars. Good show, Fake Your Own Death. These guys are among the few SF bands I'm truly stoked to catch at SXSW.
*very late 30's?
