Show Of The Week

August 23, 2017


This is a big week for A Giant Dog.  The band’s new album (and second for Merge), Toy, is out on Friday, their album release party is Saturday at Hotel Vegas, and then on Sunday they’ll be heading out on a tour that won’t have them back in Austin until they play Sound on Sound Fest in November.  Guess it’s good thing they have a song called Sleep When Dead.

Anyhow, the show this Saturday is can’t-miss.  A Giant Dog are a blast live and it’ll be a great chance for you to snatch up the new LP.  ALSO, the bill features Harlem, who haven’t played in an eternity, and Big Bill, who are always fun on stage.  Pre-sale tix for this one are sold out, but apparently more will be released on Saturday morning and then some will be available at the door.  Seriously, don’t miss this show.

PS – I did a piece on A Giant Dog and their new album for Time Out AustinFind one around town and read up on the band before the show!
