The Hi-Tones Rock the Room Thursday Night at Emo’s
This is one of those shows where you can’t hold back the rocking-out. That’s just not the thing to do. It’s too contagious. And when The Hi-Tones go from zero to 90 in about .02 seconds, you’re absolutely along for the ride.
The Austin quintet has an electrifying vintage style that pushes ahead and shows no mercy. Vocalist Johnny Flores hits the ground running at a garage rock pace, and there’s plenty of guitar, courtesy of Kyle Abrams, to keep the energy at full throttle. Their self-titled five-song EP was produced by Frenchie Smith (Sixteen Deluxe, Young Heart Attack), who knows a thing or two about classic riffs and hooks, so it was the perfect match.
Prepare yourself for one electrifying live show. The Hi-Tones play Thursday night at Emo’s, 603 Red River, and the bill includes Candi & The Strangers, Megafauna, and Purple Myrtle. Doors open at 9 p.m. And bring the earplugs with you, homie. This one’s recommended.
