Video Du Jour: Sideshow Tramps
You gotta hear this band from Houston, Texas: the Sideshow Tramps. Made up of some of city’s finest musicians, the band raises a raucous good time any place they set up. If you’ve only heard about Texas music but never really heard any, the Sideshow Tramps will be your wildest dream – and more.
As the band’s press release says: “The Sideshow Tramps exist for those who wish that the Sex Pistols, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin had formed a band together with Bob Dylan and Tom Waits.” I saw them open last year for the Texas Tornados, and they pretty much torched the stage.
If you’re in Austin around New Year’s Eve, you can catch ’em at La Zona Rosa with Shovels and Ropes (from North Carolina) and headliner Hayes Carll.
