    A Giant Dog, Go Fever, Dregs [outside]

    A Giant Dog has been a band for – can you believe it? – 13 years so I shouldn’t need to tell you they put on an exhilarating, impassioned, sweaty, wild, emotionally resonant show. What might be useful information, at this point, is that the punky, glammy, rock quintet’s got a pinnacle release on deck: a yet-to-be-announced concept about mythical land Avalonia. Several of the grandiose songs, teased at a backyard concert in May, are still stuck in my head. Speaking of career-best albums, Go Fever’s recent LP Velvet Fist – a dialed-in rock sequence powered by Acey Monaro’s entertainingly potent musings about life and relationships – hasn’t gone a week without touching my turntable. Garage punks Dregs open.

    Daikaiju, Narrow Haunts

    Levitation now in the books for 2021, flashback to a stuptifying instance of literal levitation during Austin Terror Fest 2019. Surfing an instrumentally primal Stooges punkgasm, Kabuki-masked Houston/Austin quartet Daikaiju performed a portion of their Molotov cocktail set on the outstretched arms of the audience, drum kit included. Once said percussion landed back on the ground, they set it on fire while the frontman ran out the front gate with his guitar also in flames. Most jawbones never made it back from the club’s lost and found. ATX bruisers Narrow Haunts first.
