Some exciting news for fans of Westside indie-rockers Young Mammals, of which Rocks Off understands there may be a few out there in Houston (including himself). The Strokes-ish quartet is wrapping its debut full-length, begun way back when the band was still known as the Dimes, today and already announced a CD release show earlier this week. It's not for a while, but it sounds like a goodurn: Saturday, February 28, at the Aerosol Warfare house, 1625 Alabama, with special guests Buxton and Woozyhelmet. Cover is five damn dollars, and, notes Mammals guitarist Cley Miller, "We'll probably add a couple other things too."
