King Tuff in Austin

King Tuff released the best 70's rock album of 2012 and they will be in Austin on Monday. Now, don't get it twisted I don't mean 70's rock in the sense of Zep or Sabath, King Tuff's newest sounds closer to the first Big Star record than any 70's cock-rock. There's loads of melody, great riffs and some of my favorite drum production since the Tame Impala record. If none of this sounds appealing to you then you should really expand your horizons because you're missing out on some seriously good shit. If this sounds like it's right up your alley then you should grab yourself some tickets to Monday night's show at Red 7.

If you have to work early Tuesday morning or you just don't have $10 to spare on a concert ticket, I'm not judging you, I'm here for you. You can still see King Tuff perform an abbreviated set inside Waterloo Records. That performance will start at 5:00pm but you should arrive early enough to find parking and walk. I know Waterloo has a parking lot but don't assume there will be available spaces, in-stores can get crazy y'all! Also, lots of times there is free beer so, yeah. You should go.
