Tiger Army

I’ll be perfectly honest, I haven’t listened to anything from California psychobilly band Tiger Army since their first three records, over 10 years ago. And I’m not going to. I don’t wanna dive back into something that meant so much to me and find that we’ve grown apart. To be fair, it seems that lead singer Nick 13 has had the same predicament. The tattooed frontman and only stable member has been hard at work pursuing a solo career rooted in the polyester-suited sounds of AM country, setting the Blake-inspired band aside for nearly a decade. Of course, Tiger Army has always dabbled in lighter Americana fare, “Outlaw Heart” and “In The Orchard” off of I and II, respectively, are fine additions to the neon cactus, smoking jacket lounge sound that seems to have been 13’s primary muse as of late. Tiger Army finds themselves in the enviable position of being the pick of the week because, at one time, hearing the crushed velvet of 13’s woeful tenor hit like an arrow through my heart and, although 13 has traded his cutoff Meteors Ts for Nudie suits, he once had me convinced Tiger Army would never die. $24, 7pm Sun, Alamo City Music Hall, 1305 E.
