SXSW Preview: Strange Boys

The buzz that surrounded the Strange Boys at last year’s SXSW has only grown stronger, and the teenage garage-rockers just released their sophomore album, “Be Brave,” on super-cool indie label In The Red in the U.S. and Rough Trade in Britain.

Listen, Dammit, saw them play last year in a packed tent on a sweltering night when the pounder-sized cans of Lone Star beer couldn’t stay cold enough for comfort, and it was worth every second. If it’s raw, loud and surprisingly virtuosic garage rock you crave, don’t miss them this year — it couldn’t have been any cooler hanging with the Sonics in 1965.

The Strange Boys perform March 17 at Emo’s Jr. Listen here to the title track from “Be Brave.”
