Sunburned Hand of the Man

Sunburned Hand of the Man will stop in Houston today fresh off a SXSW appearance with Thurston Moore. The band is a good companion for the Sonic Youth co-founder (too bad he’s not coming along to Houston), with droning, oddly timed rock ditties as intriguing as they are calming. Sunburned formed out of the psychedelic punk trio Shit Spangled Banner and still features all three members along with a rotating cast of musicians. The sound changed to what has been dubbed by critics as psychedelic folk, which translates to distorted, offbeat rock with mean metallic vocals. San Francisco folk rockers Citay and Houston’s own Listen Listen start things out at 9 p.m. Rudyard’s, 2010 Waugh. For information, call 713-521-0521 or visit www.rudyards.com. $8.
