The Nervebreakers: Club Dada, 4/11/09

As I offhandedly mentioned previously in a post about the Longhorn Ballroom, the Nervebreakers will play at Club Dada this weekend, the band’s first local show in 15 years. (They played a couple of shows last month in Austin during SXSW.) Why should you care?

They were the first punk band from Texas to sound like a punk band from Texas.

We Want Everything (track down a copy)

They opened up for the first Dallas show by the Ramones.

And the Sex Pistols.

And the Clash.

“My Girlfriend is a Rock” (later covered by the likes of the Angry Samoans and Wool)

The “Hijack the Radio”/”Why Am I So Flipped?” single

They backed up Roky Erickson for his first shows after he left a mental institution.

Who knows when they’ll play again?
