Mr. Plow (Houston, TX)
They’re one of those bands who, if I ever got that label going that I keep talking (mostly to myself) about, I’d reissue all three of their albums as soon as humanly possible, just in hopes of getting the word out about them to one or two more people. Quality rock like that which they proffered on Head On, Cock Fights and Pony Racin’ and especially Asteroid 25399 is a rare and special thing, and to see it go unheralded for so long is a shame. In this age of constant reunions, it doesn’t seem to much to ask: can’t a brother get a little Mr. Plow?” – The Obelisk
Vermilion Whiskey (Lafayette, LA)
Vermilion Whiskey is a hard working band playing hard rocking music from the bayous of South Louisiana. Their previous bands and influences are a mixture of styles which is portrayed in the music they play. From blues, southern rock, hard rock, and metal you’ll find a true mix of old and new styles merged into what we like to call Rock N Metal. VW’s style is just as casual as what’s normal in their everyday lives of working, fishing, and drinking. These guys aren’t fixated on trends or what’s in style, they only care about making music that feels right to them and what comes naturally. Good friends kicking back and jamming some tunes, added with a little beer & whiskey don’t hurt either!
Dirty Seeds (Houston, TX)
The Dirty Seeds. No gimmicks, just four strangers gathered together by an ape-like stoner prophet from the future to save humanity with loud rock n roll.
After coming together in 2012, The Dirty Seeds honed their riff heavy brand of stoner rock around the greater Houston area before travelling to Dallas to record their debut EP, King Kush, at Crystal Clear Sound with Kent Stump of Wo Fat at the controls in 2014.
Described as, “No frills, no BS, just unabashed stoner rock that echoes driving ninety down a deserted road full of Lone Star while you run from the cops kind of vibe,” The Dirty Seeds continue to expand beyond their home base of Houston, TX to bring riff heavy rock to the masses. Along the way, they have had the privelage of sharing the stage with such bands as Wo Fat, Mothership, Karma To Burn, Black Pussy, Ape Machine, Duel, Monster Truck, White Light Cemetery, Choke, Destroyer of Light, Switcblade Jesus, Greenbeard, Joy, Mac Sabbath, and Project Armageddon.
