Rides On, the third album from North Carolina-based septet The Nude Party, is 48 minutes of lo-fi, 1960s influence that make purists question what the hell happened to music.

Patton Magee and company appear to lean heavily on guitar lick influence from The Byrds, and even vocals that carry the same mmph and almost twangy aspects heard in Mick Jagger’s pipes.

Considering how many venues in town that have been graced by The Nude Party—including The Bends, where it staged a gig seven years ago—it’s getting to the point where catching the band live is slowly but surely evolving into a rite of passage for Tampeños.

Tickets to see The Nude Party play Crowbar in Ybor City on Tuesday, Sept. 19 are still available and start at $20. Subscribe to Creative Loafing newsletters.
