In addition to being one of the most consistently good bands of the last decade, The Walkmen are a hell of a live act. The manic energy and beautiful nuances of their albums translate well to a live setting, and there are few bands that sound tighter on stage. While those lucky enough to catch their brief SXSW stint were treated to some of the material off their excellent new album, Lisbon, the band will be coming back to Austin early next year in full support of it. The Walkmen will be playing Stubb’s on March 3, only a few weeks before SXSW.
