MODRAG SCHOOLS YOU HIPSTER SCUM AT SHANTYTOWN

Posted

8 p.m. Aug. 15, Shantytown Pub, Springfield, $5.

It’d be too easy to write off Austin-based Modrag as yet another self-described trippy garage rock/psychedelic folk band. But with distorted, dream-like melodies and intense percussion and guitar riffs, a live performance that actually seems, well, alive, and their DIY punk attitude, this three-piece act offers anything but trendy, recycled music. In fact, their debut album is titled Takeitbackfromhipsterscum, a reference to the cliquey hipster infiltration of their hometown’s music scene. Help “take it back” by catching Modrag on their East Coast tour. Highly recommended if you like: daydreaming, tambourines, fun. With Riverside Party Girls.
