Strange Boys Tour Dates With Mika Miko & The Coathangers

One of my favorite Texan bands, Strange Boys, have been touring in the Southeast recently, and will be kicking off their June tour on 6/5 with Mika Miko at Denton’s fine Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios. When I first saw Strange Boys, they were still calling Dallas home (they now reside in Austin), and were playing incredibly energetic and sophisticated live shows, especially for three guys who hadn’t yet reached legal drinking age. Now, as a quartet, the band has somehow managed to improve their live set, and their new album, And Girls Club (In The Red Records) shows a new emphasis on slowing down a bit and adding even more dusty hooks.

The video for the lead off track on And Girls Club, titled “Woe Is You And Me” (which was released as a 7” on In The Red) was directed by Daniel Hill:
