Distract Myself

By: Laurie Gallardo

After officially becoming a band in 2017, The Naked Tungs recorded and produced their debut EP, Hear It Calls. Your Austin Music Minute maven was hooked from the get-go.

Last summer the band released their follow-up, the equally addictive Distract Myself (killer opening track “Shut It Off” was featured on today’s AMM). And chances are pretty good you’ll hear these badass tunes at their show tonight at Beerland, 711 1/2 Red River. It’s an excellent line-up that includes a fabulous double-video premiere with garage pop outfit Sure (any band that has a sign in their video that says “MUSIC VIDEOS ARE STUPID” is doing all kinds of winning in my book, thank you very much) and lo-fi punk hoodlums Unpopular; plus, making their grand and chaotic debut this evening, Texas Don and the Toxic City Psychos.

Unleash the fury. Doors at 9:30 p.m. Awesome bands, one and all. Recommended.
