The Blind Pets Play Tonight at The Hole In the Wall
If the high volumes, high voltage, eardrum-splitting guitars and screaming vocals don’t seem to be getting through to you, kindly allow me to reiterate: These guys like to rock.
Austin-based trio The Blind Pets don’t put on the kind of show that allows spectators to remain aloof, arms folded, while pulling the too-cool-for-school face and standing on the sidelines. No, no, no. This is the sort of gig where one should expect nothing less than rock ‘n’ roll at full-volume, a lethal dose of ‘70s riff-powered, psyched-up blues-rock with bits of punk, grunge and metal to push it over the top.
I’ve imagined the experience as the band’s tour bus without the breaks, tearing through all the stupid, pointless red lights at breakneck speed. However, with all the intensity and primal fury, there’s an unpretentious air that makes you want to jump right in it. Frontman Joshua Logan will surely deliver a high-octane performance featuring his signature leaps and bounds throughout the room – and off the stage. And leaving your earplugs at home would be foolish.
Join The Blind Pets at their show tonight at the Hole In the Wall, 2538 Guadalupe. It’s one big rock bill with local bands Power Chief, The Organics, and the youngest rock stars on the block, Residual Kid (of whom Logan is a huge fan). Get there around 9 p.m. Check it all out.
