April 17. San Marcos, Texas’ own Zlam Dunk opened a Saturday night show at Mohawk in Austin. Red River Noise was a media sponsor for this show, which was presented by local concert promoters The Versatile Syndicate and Giant Steps Productions. Full disclosure: RRN writer Brett Thorne plays the Cleveland finger flute (known to mortals as the “guitar”) in Zlam Dunk. As serious journalists, we try to avoid conflicts of interested wherever possible. But… Zlam Dunk kicks serious ass and we’re proud to include them on shows we promote. The technically sound and charismatic dance-punk-rockers drew a big crowd just one week after playing a special Adult Swim-sponsored show. Their momentum is building, enough that Alternative Press took notice at the end of 2009.
