Austin's the Schisms Bring Their Spooky Gypsy Punk down to SA

When the lyrics of an album open up with “Burn your Bibles and Torahs” you know shit’s probably about to get a little dark. And with the Austin-based gypsy punk band The Schisms, the vibe of their new album Moon isn’t so much dark like macabre, more mischievous and spooky and … a little sexy.

Vibes the group are able to articulate across nine tracks of rock ‘n’ roll that teeter across a spectrum of genres include straight-forward-bluesy American rock in the vein of Queens of the Stone Age and Misfits-inspired horror-punk and rockabilly. The record is pretty awesome and you can guarantee they’ll be playing a few of the new tracks at The Mix this Saturday.

Saturday, September 9, With Lloronas, Rivers Want, The Cold Tonys, Free, 9pm, The Mix, (210) 735-1313,
