American Sharks Unleash WeedWizard At Fitz Saturday

Houston knows the blistering stoner-jamming American Sharks as the other band fronted by Mike Hardin, a.k.a. Roky Moon of Roky Moon & BOLT!. The latter band, our own backyard Broadway/Bowie/Meatloaf bouillabaisse, has been Hardin's main focal point for the past few years, but the Sharks came first and hardest and still play the stray gig here and there.

I spent plenty nights at Creekside off Red River in Austin watching the band play. How could I have known what that wooly lead singer would have up his sleeve years later?

With his recent move to the state capitol, Hardin and his Sharks mates decided to ramp up their own work, including a cherry Austin opening slot for King Khan & the Shrines and the Jacuzzi Boys, a tour, and readying new music including the upcoming WeedWizard seven-inch.
