Rewind: 3/10 Gobble Gobble and Baths at Jet Lounge

I’m disappointed more people didn’t turn out for this show and by the time it was all over I felt pretty lucky I made it. The opening band, The Examples, was a palatable mix of rockabilly and garage. My only complaint was that the front man’s pants were so tight that onlookers could distinctly locate his genitalia.

Gobble Gobble took a long time to set up. They carefully laid out a series of strange contraptions including a leaf blower, some hand drums, jury-rigged electronics, and a homemade electronic drum set. These Canadians played one of the most fun sets I’ve ever attended. Two band members were responsible for antics. They fought each other with snow shovels, a mysterious tool Houstonians know little about. They danced around on stilts and even allowed audience members to jam along on huge hand drums. Fantastic.

Baths didn’t disappoint either. Using only a small MIDI setup and laptop he brought tacks like “Halls” to life with his distinct falsetto yelps. Dancing was a must. Look for Baths and Gobble Gobble at SXSW.
