Damn, the White Drugs are good! Addicting, even -- so good they make your ears ring and your face go numb. So here's your hit -- from Denton’s White Drugs, whose fun, fuzzy, freaky punk will smack you right in the face.
The Drugs will release Harlem, their debut album, May 28 at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios in Denton; Record Hop opens. Look for a review of the CD in the May 23 paper version of Unfair Park. Till then, let us fix your jones with a standout track from the CD, “Kleaning Kru.” We can quit anytime. Really. --Jonanna Widner

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
