7:45pm

Joe King Carrasco and the Crowns
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 7:45pm - 8:05pm @ Austin Music Hall (208 Nueces St)

    This event was recommended by The Austin Chronicle in the article "State of Love and Trust: Belief in the 2011-12 Austin Music Awards," by Raoul Hernandez. You can read the full feature here.

    In the late summer 1979, Joe "King" Carrasco formed a stripped-down four-piece combo to replace his Chicano big band, El Molino. Dubbed the Crowns, organist/accordionist Kris Cummings, bassist Brad Kizer, and drummer Miguel Navarro backed up Carrasco at Raul's, the famed punk club, and the Hole-in-the-Wall, and other University of Texas-area venues in Austin, quickly gaining a following around their revved-up Tex-Mex brand of punk rock, harkening back to the classic Vox and Farfisa organ-driven sound first popularized by the 1960s Texas bands Sir Douglas Quintet ("She's About A Mover"), Sam The Sham and The Pharoahs ("Wooly Bully"), and ? And the Mysterians ("96 Tears").
