If that fine promo video hasn’t clued you in, allow me: War Party is playing the Hi-Tone tonight. Hailing from Forth Worth, the band has described their music as “Don’t Wop.” It’s a fitting description for a band like War Party. Punk, 60′s pop, garage — the influence is there, but it’s definitely more about the “Don’t” than the “Do.” Simplicty is their secret ingredient. Check out the band’s limited edition cassette split.
And of course, local reverb king Will Stull opens the show. Here are some of his excellent mp3s.
