Winter Wasteland

By: Laurie Gallardo

It’s a frightening sight / They’re gleeful tonight / Walking through a Winter Wasteland

Sound twisted? Good, good. Leave it to Big Bill to shake up the holiday season with much-needed absurdity. The Austin-based irreverent punk purveyors are presenting an unhinged seasonal affair: Big Bill’s Winter Wasteland, a big bash of sorts that unleashes all the holly-jolly tomorrow night at The Electric Church, 5018 E. Cesar Chavez.

Joining the celebration are Strokes cover band Post Modern Girls, garage punks FOOLS, and (not to be confused with one of KUTX’s previous Artists of the Month who use a different spelling) San Marcos outfit Flora & Fauna, who start the night out at 10:15 p.m. Doors open at 10 p.m.

Get into the spirit – the Big Bill way. So recommended.
