This pair of bands are exactly the sound of summer in South Texas: swampy, scuzzy, sweaty, (somehow also) sexy and vacillating between angst and agony.

Veteran ATX cow-punk crew Hickoids, for starters, is a high-octane, full-throttle garage rock band that splits the difference between a messy punk sound and a heady psych sound. Houston’s The Genzales, meanwhile, are a garage punk band that melds swanky guitar god vibes with a glam-punk heart, to devastating and unhinged effect.

Taken together, these two fine acts represent the kind of delirious musical fusion that Texas does best. So give in to the primal call of summer’s cauldron, and get ready to sweat out all those toxins as fast as you can take them in.

$3, Sat Aug 4, 9pm, The Bang Bang Bar, 119 El Mio Dr, (210) 320-1187,
