car stereo (wars)
If you're in or around Austin this weekend, you should probably hit up Saturday night's Car Stereo (Wars) CD release party at Beauty Bar. Five bucks gets you into what promises to be one of the most fun parties of the summer, featuring two of the best bands in TX (White Denim and Single Frame), and the price of admission includes a free copy of CS(W)'s Burt Reynolds-themed debut LP, The Bandit. We've long been fans of their mashups and mixtapes, and this one is off the hook as well. The obvious reference point here is Girl Talk, but the boys in Car Stereo (Wars) tend to show a little much-appreciated restraint, making The Bandit an enjoyable and only slightly exhausting (in a good way) listen. Name them tunes:
Car Stereo (Wars) Hey Hey Stick Stickley
If you can't make it down to Austin, you'll be able to cop The Bandit here at some point in the near future. Check the flyer for Saturday night's show here.
