Ten Years Ago…

By: Laurie Gallardo

Your Austin Music Minute maven had the pleasure of hosting an awesome stripped-down acoustic set by The Drums in KUTX’s Studio 1A last year, during the band’s tour supporting Brutalism. However, for this week, songwriter Jonathan Pierce is taking it back a decade, when fans got hooked on their first single “Let’s Go Surfing.”

The Drums’ self-titled ’80s-pop/post-punk debut LP totally smashed it in the summer of 2010. Now they’re celebrating its ten-year anniversary with a performance of the entire album on a livestream show at 8 p.m. Central tonight, Monday October 26, at Noonchorus.
