Picks and Pans Review: Party Weekend

Joe King Carrasco & the Crowns

Carrasco, 29, is the pop monarch of Austin, Texas and comports himself with all the formality of a fraternity beer bash. He provides his subjects with such zesty, silly fare as Let's Go Nutz, Dance Republic, Buena, Tears Been a-Fall in' and Gracias. Joking Carrasco is abetted in all of this by producer Richard Gottehrer, the veteran fundit who helped the Go-Go's, Marshall Crenshaw and Blondie craft their careers. Joe sings lead and plays guitar, fronting his capable coterie, the Crowns—Kristine Cummings on keyboards (since departed), Brad Kizer on bass and Dick Ross on drums. In short, this answers the question of what Austiners who aren't addicted to country music are most likely to do on Saturday night: See Joe.
