Gig Alert: An Horse Performs at Rubber Gloves Tonight

Australia's dynamic duo of Kate Cooper and Damon Cox--better known as An Horse--appears to have survived SXSW 2010. And they'll be making an appearance tonight in Denton in the wake of that festival.

It's worth checking out, too: The duo's salty take on indie pop has gathered them all sorts of interesting fans--including another duo, the twins known as Tegan and Sara. However, An Horse's music is much more electric than that of the more famous twins from Canada. An Horse's two releases (the Not Really Scared EP and last year's Rearrange Beds
full-length) are both mighty fine collections of ragged pop with interesting alt-country influences.

The first song on the album is the infectious "Camp Out." Check out the above video for the track. And then head to Denton and support a couple of Aussies.
