The Abracadabras

On the right night, the Abracadabras had the air of a band that was going places. Small obstacles like living in Blue Springs and having their trailer jacked didn’t seem to deter the fab five, who always had another great song in the well from a lineage spanning early Britpop to big-stage alt-rock. The group prided itself on its leave-it-all-onstage performances; rare was the night that singer John Nixon didn’t fall over or lose his voice. Nixon’s move to Austin, Texas, signaled an untimely end for the Abracadabras, but they’ll reunite tonight for one farewell hurrah and screening of their music video for the song “An Argument.”
