What to Do Tonight: Woven Bones

Orlando might be a great spot for Disney-related jobs, but it’s basically a rock ’n’ roll wasteland. With little happening in Florida, singer-guitarist Andrew Burr relocated to Austin to pursue his musical dreams. He formed the Woven Bones, who have perfected their Cramps-informed psych-punk over a succession of singles and last year’s The Minus Touch EP. The trio recently released its debut album, In and Out and Back Again, and Burr’s snarling, growled vocals are all over it. He slobbers over the fuzzed-out “Half Sunk Into the Seats” and “If It Feels Alright.” It’s kinda like what the Velvet Underground would have sounded like without John Cale and with shittier equipment. There’s a gratifyingly familiar quality to most of the album’s songs. When a band hits on a winning formula, there’s little shame in overworking a groove. If you’re into snarl and fuzz, the Woven Bones have plenty on tap. Woven Bones, CCR Headcleaner, Puffy Areolas, and Rubella, play Now That's Class at 10 p.m. Tickets are $5.
