Formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 2006, The Sidekicks paid their dues according to the old-fashion punk rock model—by playing lots and lots of shows, sleeping on floors, and generally devoting themselves to recording and touring at the expense of any other kind of life. The bands earliest recorded efforts—2007’s So Long, Soggy Dog and 2009’s Weight of Air—reflected this. By the time they released 2012’s Awkward Breeds, the romance of punk rock was beginning to wane and the influence of pop music began to creep in. Currently the group is on tour in support of their new album, Runners in the Nerved World.
On Sunday, Feb. 22, The Sidekicks will be performing a headlining concert in Austin at Mohawk. They will be joined by Philadelphia indie-pop punks Cayetana and Austin’s lesser beings. The best part? We have two tickets to giveaway to one of our lucky Red River Noise readers.
