Video: Cruiserweight at Waterloo Records [April 22]

After 11 years of memorable shows and catchy albums, local pop-punk heroes Cruiserweight are no more. The band played its two last shows in Austin ever, deciding to call it quits after bassist/songwriter David Hawkins decided to pursue a master's in audio engineering in Arizona. The band's penultimate Austin show took place at Waterloo Records last Thursday and I caught some of the magic on video. Watch the super-cute dance competition on this clip of "Goodbye Daily Sadness" below and you'll know why Cruiserweight was a special kind of band. Go to YouTube for clips of "Witness" and "There You Are" as well.
