Austin Lounge LizardsTexas literary luminary Larry McMurtry’s comment that “being a writer and a Texan is an amusing fate, one that gets funnier as one’s sense of humor darkens,” perfectly describes the members of our favorite Austin-based band. With twisted humor and highly literate, sharply pointed lyrics, the Austin Lounge Lizards poke fun at politics, love, religion, and mass culture. Founding members Conrad Deisler and Hank Card, both on guitars, plus Bruce Jones on bass and Darcie Deaville on fiddle, mandolin, and quips offer up spiffy vocal harmonies and polished instrumentals that come together for a sound and sensibility that’s part bluegrass, part country, part Cajun, and pure irreverence.
 
The Lizards' new DVD, 30 Years of Lost Luggage, attests to the group's historical significance,from the good old days of "Jesus Loves Me (But He Can't Stand You)" to hummable contemporary fare like "The Drugs I Need," with plenty of impetuous cameo appearances by former Lizards.
 
Whether you're hoping to laugh ‘til you're sore, to get a little perspective on current events, or just to hear some really fine music, this show will certainly fill the bill!
