Austin band The Strange Boys will sound off on June 4 to start the Valley’s summer show season at Ambrosia Coffee Shop, 1000 Martin Ave., McAllen.
Local talent Vulpes, Rob Maths and Jungle Bodies are slated to open the show for what many would describe as a “good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll band.” The date will also mark Jungle Bodies’ last performance.
The show begins at 9:30 p.m.; doors are scheduled to open at 9 p.m.
Promoter Patrick Adrian Garcia says The Strange Boys, who he chose to play the Saturday show after missing an opportunity to see them at SXSW, are “a fun, gritty band that our valley audience will have a lot of fun with”.
Garcia recommends taking in a sampling of several artists for show goers who have never heard of The Strange Boys and are unfamiliar with the genre.
“First, I’d recommend what I’d imagine to be their influences: Buddy Holly, early 60’s Bob Dylan, early Rolling Stones. I can see fans of that stuff perking their ears up to the Strange Boys or getting really angry,” Garcia said. “And for more contemporary stuff I’d say some Hunx & His Punx, White Stripes, Jeff the Brotherhood and the Booze”.
Tickets for The Strange Boys cost $8 in advance and $10 at the door; they’re available at Ambrosia Coffee Shop and Fall Back Records, 416 N. 10th St., McAllen.
