Listen: "Trashcan USA" by A Giant Dog
A Giant Dog are one of many talented garage rock bands based here in Austin. They perform tomorrow (4/1) at Club de Ville at 7:00pm. Like with many local bands here in Austin, there is always a struggle to get people's attention in this crowded field of local talent and of course the constant stream of popular touring acts.
Since Red River Noise is a media sponsor for the showcase tomorrow, I thought I'd shed a little bit more light on the night's headliner. Listen to A Giant Dog's new EP Trashcan USA below:
