The Most Likes

By: Laurie Gallardo

So, before you make that next pouty duck face and edit like hell, you need to check out The Blowies. Your Austin Music Minute maven appreciates the band’s jabs at the ridiculousness of existence and everything about it. Take, for example, their shot at the absurdity of “selfie” culture, – all its narcissistic tendencies, its (almost hysterically so) false impression of reality – on their new single, “Selfie F***s” (which, for radio broadcast purposes, your AMM host referred to as “Selfie Love”). How many filters, emojis, hastags or “likes” will ever truly define the real story behind the images on one’s social media profile, or highly stylized/overly-edited Instagram story? The Blowies nail it with melodic, sweet punk savagery.

Join The Blowies at their single release show tonight at Hotel Vegas, 1502 E. 6th St. The bill includes sets by Fair City Fire and Dream Eater. Doors at 9 p.m. So recommended. And don’t forget to click to subscribe and receive notifications! Or perhaps not…
