Sunday, June 15, San Antonio-based indie band The Hawks (of Holy Rosary) will be performing a headlining concert at Spider House Ballroom. This show is their last of a short tour that included a string of dates supporting Dr. Dog. Austin-based indie-pop band Burgess Meredith will follow and Slomo Drags open the show.
Founded by bassist Chuck Hernandez and guitarist Frank Weysos, the no-wave/indie-pop sextet features three-part harmonies backed by beautifully layered pop music and a joyous punk rock spirit. Their vintage sound is reminiscent of modern groups like Grace Potter and the Nocturnals or even a bit like fellow San-Anto indie rockers Hacienda. In fact, it was with Hacienda where I first saw the band perform live a few years ago at Stubb’s. I bring that up because their bio claims that they “never play the same show twice.” That may be true for me at least as they will perform new material from their second full-length album, What Team Am I On?, out July 22 via Texas Is Funny Records.
Spider House Ballroom is located at 2906 Fruth Street. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. Live music starts at 10 p.m. All ages welcome. $5 cover. Visit the Facebook event page here.
