Car Seat Headrest Returns to San Antonio with Their Early-aughts Indie Nostalgia


  • Facebook, Car Seat Headrest
Car Seat Headrest, the lo-fi indie rock project of young songwriter Will Toledo is returning to San Antonio for a show at the Paper Tiger on Saturday, March 2, 2019, and we’re more than just a little stoked about it.

Since 2010, Toledo — who has now recruited a full band to support the project — has nearly single-handedly churned out messy, emotive, lyrically sophisticated rock music at breakneck speed (ten albums and two EPs, for cryin' out loud).

At moments poppy, then intervals of sadness, and then sometimes almost conflicting emotions, Toledo knows how to make his audience feel some shit. Car Seat Headrest basically sounds like everything that was beautiful about indie and alt rock from 1995-2005.

Yep, we can stand behind that.
