    Wednesday March 14, 2012 8:00pm - 8:40pm @ The Main (603 Red River St, Austin, TX 78701)

    It's easy to get frustrated with 'labels' so excuse me as I throw some around trying to describe my new favorite band. What about just calling it fucking Rock ‘n’ Roll? Punk? Drunk? I mean, it's not about drinking - though drinking really helps. Sometimes you need to be lubricated to get the fuel that drives the bratty, playfully druggy, unseeingly tight-but-sloppy punk anthems that define FIDLAR. It's easier to perpetuate adolescence in a rehearsal space with cases of beer and your best friends than at some day job. The cliches of guitars, sweat and beers - that bring to mind dudes who’ve watched Airheads a few too many times - have modern parallels in bands, garages, D.I.Y. labels, basements and studios too numerous to mention or give a shit about. However, FIDLAR is a breath of fresh air amid this age of censored hiss and pop,. It's like your favorite band when you were 15 but only louder, more drunk and ready to ollie your head just to bail the board on your teeth because, as the acronym states - Fuck It Dog Life's A Risk. - Alex Kaiser
