In its relatively short life, Austin's Follow That Bird! (due at the hi-dive tonight with the Marrow, Married in Berdichev, Port Au Prince and Jess Williamson) has moved from an instrumental duo to a fierce and vocally-led trio, all while continuing on its path of smart, straightforward rock and roll. Beyond the obvious comparisons to Corin Tucker's vocal style, Lauren Green leads the minimalist group with an equally strong and bristly voice, barreling through Follow That Bird!'s guitar-heavy compositions.
Playing SXSW and subsequently catching the attention of Matador Records last year, the band was asked to contribute to an Austin-centric compilation for the label, and have been on an upward trajectory ever since. This show is 21 and up, and tickets are $6. Doors open at 8 p.m., and bands start at 9 p.m.
