Lowdown Ways

By: Laurie Gallardo

It’s like the Daddy Long Legs guys said to your Austin Music Minute host in Studio 1A this afternoon: Rock ‘n’ roll ain’t dead. You just gotta dig deeper, sometimes. You’ll see that fire’s alive and burning.

If you don’t know them by now, you need to. All the way from New York, Daddy Long Legs elevates rock to a whole other level with their legendary live performances. You get served heavy doses of lo-fi rock, blues and…something absolutely jarring from the dark recesses of the soul. Rejuvenate yourself by spinning their latest release, Lowdown Ways, and see what the hype’s all about.

Fair warning: It’s gonna get explosive with Daddy Long Legs tonight at Empire Control Room, 606 E. 7th St. And it’s one hell of a bill with fellow legendary band, Austin cowpunk outfit Hickoids, and mighty rock/soul/glam band The Reputations. Doors open at 7 p.m. You cannot miss a single one of these bands. Got it?

This one comes so recommended, it hurts.
