No Dogs Allowed

By: Laurie Gallardo

In today’s adventures in music-listening, your Austin Music Minute humbly presents exhibit A: Sidney Gish‘s deviously delightful No Dogs Allowed (2017), her second independently-released full-length LP.

Why “devious,” you ask? It’s a compliment. In addition to Gish’s superb musicianship, with her mastery of infectious hooks and bubbly melodies throughout, there’s a marvelous self-deprecating humor illuminating the experiences and challenges of a 20-something mind. It’s the lyrics sung in a seemingly plaintive tone – but not quite plaintive…maybe varying degrees of insecurity? – that makes it laugh-out-loud funny at times, and it’s fantastic.

Treat yourself by catching Sidney Gish tonight at Barracuda, 611 E. 7th St., on an excellent bill featuring ATX bands Why Bonnie and Space Heat. Doors open at 7 p.m. Recommended.
