You know a band is great when I will go out of my way (sometimes far out of my way) and Audacity is one of those bands. Having seen them a bunch of times between December and April, I can tell you — they’re one of the best ass slaying live bands on the market right now. This summer they’re going on tour with some of our other favorite bands like, Ty Segall & Shannon and the Clams, but moreover, they’re doing double duty playing as King Tuff’s backing band for a run of shows in August. Now, I’ve seen them do a King Tuff covers set and seen them play as his backing band and it is one of the greatest things ever. If you’re on the West Coast and you don’t go to the date in your area — you suck. Go on:
