Loxsly Comes to DC

One of Austin's finest bands, Loxsly, is heading to DC for not one but TWO shows:

Saturday, May 23rd at DC9 (opening for Ra Ra Rasputin and The Spiritual Machine)

Monday, May 25th at Galaxy Hut (with Finer Designer)

I received an early copy of their new album, Tomorrow's Fossils, and it's every bit as good as their Flashlights EP released last year. I've already endorsed this band a number of times. But don't take my word for it. Here's what some others have to say about Loxsly:

"Instead of relying on a couple of offbeat songs to demonstrate a more experimental bent, Loxsly often blends familiarity and new ground within the same song, making for a more intriguing concept."

Said the Gramaphone
"A continuous loop. Though something is different every time."

Absolute Punk
"a tiny bit dark, a huge bit emotional, and thoroughly enjoyable."

The Daily Texan
"Loxsly appl(ies) a dark, underwater sonic treatment that isn’t flashy or in your face, but draws the listener into a carefully constructed world filled with thick, buoyant bass lines, swirling organs, and shimmering piano runs."

But does he steal from the rich to give to the poor?! Or perform in green tights?! Is his backup band the Littlejohns?!

People often mistake them for a band named Locksley but never Robin Hood of Loxley.

Performing in green tights isn't a bad idea though...

...sounds like a potential theme for their next album.
