Now’s a good time for the Austin Music Minute reminder: Don’t leave the earplugs at home.

Heavy sounds at high volume, baby. Good for the soul. Lone Star Unleashed 2021 is an outdoor music festival featuring twenty-one Texas bands burning up two stages. And it’s one sick, merciless line-up: Duel, The Well (“Death Song” from Death and Consolation is featured on today’s AMM), Billy King & The Bad Bad Bad, Amplified Heat, The Beaumonts, Bridge Farmers, the embodiment of insanity known as Rickshaw Billie’s Burger Patrol, Holy Death Trio and more.

The chaos kicks off this Saturday, June 26, at The Far Out Lounge and Stage, 8504 S. Congress Ave. Doors open at noon.

You know. Around the time you usually crawl out of bed.
