After a two-week tour of Japan a few months back, Austin indie rock outfit Lick Lick returns the favor as host to Japanese rockers The Captains and Tsu Shi Ma Mi Re for a series of shows in Austin and Houston before their guests brave through Hurricane Ike to make their way to gigs in Mississippi and Georgia.
Considering that the bands have traveled thousands of miles to take Texas by storm, I personally feel that Ikes passage from Cuba simply pales in comparison. So come early, drink beer, and show our citys featured guests how we roll hurricane party style.
On Friday, September 12th, The Captains and Tsu Shi Ma Mi Re will take the stage at Beerland with Lick Lick and and local indie pop rockers, Peel.
Beerland is located at 711 Red River St. in downtown Austin. Unless the city is evacuated, the hurricane party will continue on Saturday, September 13th at Rudyards in Houston.
And while Ive got your eyeballs on the site, might I beg you to give a little shout to the heavens and ask Ike to play nice over the weekend.
Keep safe, everyone!
