Heart Rattling

By: Laurie Gallardo

There are some deep-running roots that bind The Districts together. Three of the Philadelphia band’s founding members were impressing fans with their music even before graduating high school, cultivating a loyal following since their self-released full-length debut Telephone (2012), through the much-acclaimed A Flourish and a Spoil (2015) and their most recent album, Popular Manipulations (2017), the latter achieving a balance that’s simultaneously sweetly melodic and ferocious. Vocalist Rob Grote can croon disarmingly heartfelt ruminations of broken romance amidst massive guitar blasts; things are bigger, louder and bolder this time around on their third LP.

The Districts just kicked off their Fuzzy Dice Tour in Dallas last night. Tonight, they return to Austin for a show at Barracuda, 611 E. 7th. Chicago band Deeper and Austin outfit Duncan Fellows join them on the bill. Doors open at 8 p.m. Welcome to this night of rock. Recommended.
