Music to Your Ears

Philip Goetz
Les Messieurs du Rock; appearing this Friday, July 16, at the Atomic Cantina.

If you like your punk rock with a generous side of pretentiousness, then Austin's—by way of Paris according to the band's bio—Les Messieurs du Rock will more than please you on Friday night, July 16, at the Atomic Cantina. Other Austin bands like And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead and Those Peabodys are well-known for their asshole-ish swagger, but Les Messieurs make both of those bands seem as polite and down-to-Earth as Hootie and the Blowfish.

Hit By a Bus; celebrating the release of their new CD, Outside the Van Door Sunday, July 25, at the Launchpad with Feels Like Sunday, Ki and Dirty Baby Dolls. All-ages, 7 p.m.

Take “I'm Going to Pull Out and Cry All Over You,” from Les Messieurs' debut, L'estase (Sixgunlover), a lengthy, hyper-stoned, atonal jam that would be virtually unlistenable if not for the ridiculously salacious lyrics and the fact that you pretty much know what you're in for long before that particular track comes up.

Live, Le Messieurs should be wonderfully obnoxious and lovably annoying. Your girlfriend will hate them. If not, you should consider marrying her. ... Alibi Fall Crawl 2004 is just around the corner, scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 28. You probably know the drill pretty well by now, but there are a couple of things I should reiterate. First, your band will not get a Crawl slot if you haven't played Downtown previously and made some kind of name for yourself. Each participating club provides a “wish list” of bands they'd like to host, which is generally based on how well a particular club owner knows a band and how well said band draws. Book some shows, promote yourselves and you'll probably get a slot. Second, buy your wristbands in advance and save $5 per. Stay tuned to this column for advance sales locations.
