Strange Boys, Last Year's Men, Wigg Report

When: Thu., June 16, 8 p.m. 2011

It's disappointing to still requisitely report that The Strange Boys are an Austin, Texas, sextet that makes garage rock with a range that runs from languid and thoughtful to sweaty and bustling, like a punk rock band shot through with an R&B heart and a poet's mind. It's disappointing not because I wish they'd break up or because I wish they'd lose a member; rather, it's a letdown that the Boys aren't more famous, an assertion confirmed by the consistent excellence of their songs and the thoughtful generosity of last year's Be Brave. Others agree: The band recently moved from one legendary label, In the Red, to another, Rough Trade. The Wigg Report and Last Year's Men open. —Grayson Currin
