Cop Warmth

My memories of Houston’s “most hated” band are pretty fuckin’ hazy. Having played several shows with them almost a decade ago at the now-defunct 180 Grams and a dive in H-Town called the White Swan, I remember lots of boxer shorts (and only boxer shorts), bodily fluids, terrible alcohol and a drummer named Zlatan who swung wildly — dismantling his kit in the process — connecting with the audience more often than his cymbals. The rickety construction of their music worms into your head holes like the burn of a skateboard wipeout on molten Texas asphalt, or a flag bonfire with lighter fluid functioning as the incendiary provocateur and beverage of choice. As a spectator, making it through a show was as much a treat of punk carnage as it was a source of pride, most people taking several looks at the band and the rugby scrum of their set and turning tail. If feedback was a viable nutrient, to witness a Cop Warmth show would be like gorging on the dingiest blister buffet; stuffed to the gills on white noise and razor-burned distortion. Gosh, I hope they remember me. With Body Pressure and Colonia.

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
