Look Mexico coming to Austin in February
Look Mexico returns to Austin again to play Red 7 on February 21st. According to their MySpace page, the show at Red 7 is a CD release show for a new album. I saw them last fall with Dignan at Emo' s. I only caught part of their set, so I am taking advantage of this opportunity to see them again. This show falls on a Sunday night, so I'm totally there.
They are touring right now in anticipation of their upcoming sophomore album, To Bed To Battle. The album is due out March 23rd on Suburban Home Records, but will be available at shows. Look Mexico is also taking pre-orders for their a vinyl release for the songs "You Stay. I Go. No Following." and the acoustic version of "They Only Take the Back Roads". That comes out on February 23rd. (photo by Jeff Fasano)
