Thursday's local music pick: SuperLiteBike at the Parish

I've watched SuperLiteBike change and grow over the years, to mostly pleasing results. They were actually the first band I ever saw live in Austin when I moved here on a muggy summer weekend in 2004. They were called A Pocketful of Deng at the time, and they were skinny kids with lots of potential but a lack of direction. They've evolved as musicians and songwriters over time, becoming more performance-oriented with coolly charismatic live shows. The band spent much of 2009 writing and recording their debut album, and I'm stoked that it will finally be released to the public starting May 13. Their CD release show is at The Parish along with Fatback Circus and The Carrots.
