Lloronas
Friday, June 23

For our money, Lloronas, set to play Bang Bang Bar this weekend, are one of the most promising new-ish bands in town at the moment. While the foursome’s driving, angular, and often danceable brand of punk rock is certainly nothing novel in this town, the songs themselves are unique and noteworthy, showcasing the young outfit’s knack for hooks, for emotion that seems to lunge forward toward impossible crescendos, and for savvy lyrics, charged with political and social commentary. One listen to Lloronas’ feminist anthem “American Puta” (that title tho!) will have you convinced that you need this band to shake up the pathetic simulation of safety that pervades your would-be progressive existence. Also: it rocks. You can dig this track and some of Lloronas other recorded output at lloronas.bandcamp.com. Vegan Street Tacos and Macho Peach will also perform. Free, 9:00pm, The Bang Bang Bar, 119 El Mio Dr, (210) 320-1187. — James Courtney
