Anthony Green, Tiger Army, Swimming with Bears
Anthony Green has been nothing but prolific since his first solo release in 2008. He’s released quite a bit of solo material, three albums with his main band, Circa Survive, and reunited with Saosin for a new record. His latest solo album, “Pixie Queen,” was released Friday. Check him out with Mat Kerekes (singer-songwriter from the Michigan band Citizen), Secret Space (Toledo in
die rock trio) on Monday at House of Rock. Doors are at
7 p.m. The solo release actually is collaboration with Will Yip, who produced the record and is releasing it through his Memory Music label. According to AVClub.com, ” ‘Pixie Queen’ highlights plenty of Green’s disparate pursuits, from dusty acoustic ballads (“Will It Be”) to barroom stomps (“A Reason To Stay”) all the way to songs heavily indebted to Western music (“Dawn On The Canal”). But ‘Pixie Queen’ doesn’t excise the influences Green has carried for so long—he still takes cues from from Jeremy Enigk’s post-Sunny Day Real Estate material — and finds new ways to spin them. It’s a record that shows Green has little concern for adhering to a single form, instead letting the songs guide him to their logical end.”
Los Angeles psychobilly band Tiger Army still is marching strong and has its first new album in nine years. They’ll be stopping by House of Rock on Tuesday, making their first appearance in Corpus Christi since 2008. Led by founder Nick 13, the Berkeley-born band, started in 1996, released a collection of roots-based punk called “V…” this year. Support acts include Creeper, a fast-rising Southampton, England, horror punk sextet, and Tijuana Panthers, a punchy garage-rock trio based in Long Beach. Tijuana Panthers is touring to support its 2015 album “Poster” as well as a new six-song EP.
