Local band: The Stevedores

The other night a group from the math department went to the High Noon to see some local bands play; I think we made up about a quarter of the audience. The highlight of the night was a short set by The Stevedores, who played about half originals and half oldies (“Maybelline,” “Love Potion # 9”) in a great reverby, tired, end-of-the-world way. When they played covers they sounded like a band you might see in a David Lynch movie. When they played originals they sounded like a much mellower Man Man.

Not really local for long, I’m afraid — it seems they moved here from New York last year and are moving to Austin shortly. But it was nice to have them here.

    You should have seen them before their lead singer passed away.
