Directly following that outstanding bit of musicianship, we made our way back down the staircase, past couples both hipster and preppy actively making out, to take in the sounds of The Blind Pets, a band we'd never heard before. Well, we certainly know them now, as our eardrums were gleefully and willfully blasted to shreds by the loud, aggressive rock n roll from this Austin trio.

Featuring a drummer who banged the skins like Animal from The Muppet Show and a guitar player/singer who brazenly meshed together punk, garage and bluesy '70s psychedelic rock, there was some amazing hard-rock fury on display from these guys. The tiny room that passes for the downstairs stage at The Mink was filled to overflowing for 30 minutes with a host of relentless, searing songs powered by a big, sweaty mix of distortion and overdrive. Bands of this nature serve to remind us just how much we love actual rock. - Houston Press

Bio

Formed in 2007 in a sweat infested storage unit in Austin tx. The blind pets are a punch in the face with no apologies. From distorted sounds to heavy riffs they are constantly searching for a primal frequency to tune in on. The band is built around having a good time and releasing frustrations from an everyday life. They have released two records so far sugar(2007) and smashed (2009) all independently produced.
Definitely a band to watch out for in the underground rock scene.
