Lightning Strikes

By: Laurie Gallardo

It’s the perfect way to round out your Labor Day weekend. Release the beast. Unleash the rock. Leave your earplugs at home and pay the price, fool.

Austin-based three-piece Wild Tinderbox pushes it past eleven on their debut LP, a storm of prog-/desert-/psych-veined rock, Daughters of Lightning. Catch Wild Tinderbox tonight at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, on the inside stage, along with longtime AMM fave Obscured By Echoes and gritty raunch-blues rock fiends Secondhand Shag. It’s all the rock tonight, really. Go for it.
