STEREO IS A LIE and White Dress Play Tonight at the Cactus Cafe
STEREO IS A LIE, featuring songwriter and guitarist Glynn Wedgewood (IV Thieves), is known for high volume, full-throttle mega-Brit pop/rock gigs driven by massive guitar action and ripping hooks. However, they’re making an exception for tonight’s show at the Cactus Cafe. They’ll be doing their music acoustic-style, which undoubtedly means a slightly lower volume, but don’t be lulled into thinking that the show won’t rock. They’re no strangers to acoustic sets, and they sound great doing them.
The same should be said for Austin-based guitar and drum band White Dress. Vocalist Arum Rae Valkonen and Grant Van Amburgh bring forth a heavier sound than would be expected from a duo – rough edge country meets whiskey-soaked rock, tied in with Valkonen’s sultry vocal delivery. Perhaps the volume may come down a couple of notches, but again, here’s a band that knows how to make it rock without always going up to eleven.
Don’t miss STEREO IS A LIE and White Dress at their show tonight at the Cactus Cafe in the Texas Union Building, at 24th St. and Guadalupe. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the show starts at 8:30. Recommended.
