This show is an alternative rock fan’s local dream. For starters, we’ll get a chance to check out the live chops of the hard-rock/alt-rock outfit Crowns X Coffins, which formed in 2017 and features members of the bands FIN, Lokey and Slowlikefire.
Also on the bill, Villains, is an alternative rock band but with a decidedly bluesier sound, steeped in a garage rock vibe, with a bit of a post-punk thing going on, too. You can dig Villains’ music at villains210.bandcamp.com
. As you can probably tell from the tracks there, the band’s music is pretty killer in the live-setting.
Full disclosure: Jaime Monzon of Crowns X Coffins is digital operations coordinator for the Current’s parent company Euclid Media Group.
$5, Fri May 25, 9pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com.
