A Giant Dog February Residency - Every Thursday Of The Month!

Doors: 8pm
Featuring: A Giant Dog / Lola Tried / Flesh Lights / DJ Steene
> A Giant Dog

Austin's A Giant Dog, formed in 2008, is raucous ear candy culled from the hook-driven melodies of Slade, the glammy swagger of Marc Bolan, the morbid fantasy of Killer-era Alice Cooper, and the unpredictable wit of Sparks. Sabrina and Andrew’s lyrics, equal parts brutally honest, clever, and debased, have a knack for taking their idiosyncratic depravities and making them feel universal. These songs are by, for, and about the losers, freaks, and outcasts. The lonely. The terminally horny. Boozehounds and party animals. No band better speaks to the hearts of slackers, burnouts, rockers, sluts, and creeps everywhere than A Giant Dog.

AGD have built their reputation blowing the goddamned doors off every venue in Austin. Live, they are loud, heavy, electrifying. Sabrina struts around the stage like Iggy Pop channeling Tina Turner. Andrew hurls himself from the summit of the speaker stack. Graham’s headbanging clobbers anything close to him. The audience rages, asses shake, and everyone leaves drenched in beer and bodily fluids.

> Lola Tried

Forming in Austin, Texas in the summer of 2015, Lola Tried began as a project started by local singer/songwriter Lauren Burton. After meeting Ray Garza (Lead Guitar, Keys) in August 2015, she decided to form a full band project, adding Ray Flynt on drums and Greg Spencer on bass. Taking influence from the likes of Swearin' and Lemuria, Lola Tried blends melodic vocals with the grittiness of modern indie rock. After spending the summer in the studio, Lola Tried released "Popsicle Queen" in February 2017.

> Flesh Lights

Flesh Lights are an Austin, TX, punk trio. Guitarist/vocalist Max Vandever and cousin Elissa Ussery (drums/vocals) migrated from San Antonio and began their assault on Austin’s live music dumps in 2008 playing as a duo under ill-advised names including but not limited to Candle Shop & The Psychic Reader, Dead Ledger and Carousel Images. After poaching bassist/vocalist Jeremy Steen from an early lineup of The Gospel Truth, the newly dubbed Flesh Lights (Google at your own risk) quickly became a fixture on whatever you-got-songs-in-my-punk / you-got-punk-in-my-songs circuit that began to coalesce around the live music capital. Early on, Flesh Lights established themselves as being songcraft devotees without much self-consciousness. Writing almost completely on the spot, their recordings are a fresh surprise even to the members. The only thing better than their music? Their incredibly energetic live shows.
