Enter the Dragons

In the tradition of the Zeros and the Nuns, the youngest Escovedo talks siblings, booze and Dragon slaying

After playing the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas, the Dragons will set off on a West Coast jaunt with Norwegian Sub Pop band Glucifer.

In December, the Dragons recorded a live show at their San Diego clubhouse, the Casbah, for release on May 2. Titled Live at the Casbah, the overdub-free disc captures the band in all its spirited, Jack-and-Coke-slamming glory. The band's live staple, a cover of the Texas Tornadoes' "Adios, Mexico," is done up with boozy aplomb. Two hidden CD-ending covers, guileful versions of "Happy" and "Starfucker," sum up perfectly the band's essence. Versions to which even Keef would no doubt offer a crusty nod and gap-toothed grin.

The Dragons are scheduled to perform on Saturday, March 11, at the Green Room in Tempe. Showtime is 9 p.m.

The Dragons: Steve Rodriguez, Kenny Horne, Mario Escovedo and Jerrod Lucas.
