The Austin Lounge Lizards are arguably the perfect pairing of their hometown’s moniker, “Music Capital of the World,” and its motto: “Keep Austin Weird.” For 33 years, the Lizards have been spoofing the topics American families try to avoid at the Thanksgiving table; subjects like politics, religion, romance, the music industry, and their crazy/stupid relatives.

With pointed lyrics, precise harmonies and instrumental expertise, the band has become legendary for its satirical skewering through song. The Austin Lounge Lizards are five-time winners at the prestigious Austin Music Awards. Their version of Irving Berlin’s “C-U-B-A” was used in the Michael Moore film Sicko. The band has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition and on the radio programs Mountain Stage and E-Town.
