The Velostacks (Houston, TX)
The story of The Velostacks is the journey of a pack rock n’ roll wolves hell bent on giving a voice to greasy motorheads and broken-hearted rockers everywhere. Pulled together by frontman and rhythm guitar player Curtis W. DeGidio, The Velostacks quickly left their mark on the Houston, Texas underground rock n’ roll scene, leading to the honor of being nominated for “Best Punk Band” in the 2014 Houston Press Music Awards… a major achievement in their freshman year. Rich “Rico Havoco” Crishock joined The Velostacks only hours before the first performance and has remained a constant along side Curtis since their first outing. Bass player Christian “The GFN” Best, holds down the thundering rhythm along side drummer Randy Miller. In 2017, starting with their kick-off show for the year, The Velostacks added Joe “Pete O’Fender” McSweeney to their hard hitting stage show.
The Velostacks have shared the stage with the likes of The Dictators, Lower Class Brats, The Casualties, Cheetah Chrome, Jukebox Romantics, Tex & The Horseheads, .45 Grave, Rick Agnew (The Adolescents), 30 Foot Fall, and many, many more.
The Velostacks have been influenced by everything rock n’ roll & dirty blues including Motorhead, Turbonegro, Mott the Hoople, Johnny Cash, Social Distortion, Robert Johnson, Led Belly, and Blind Lemon Jefferson.
2017 will see the release of The Velostacks debut single “Blood on the Carbs” on vinyl for the first time, previously only being available via digital download. In addition, The Velostacks will be releasing their first full length “Black Magic & Motor Oil” this same year.
Brewtality Inc (Austin TX)
Established in 1999, Brewtality Incorporated plays the kind of working class, beer guzzling, punk rock that has earned the band opening slots for the likes of U.S. Bombs, The Cromags, Citizen Fish, The Queers, and M.O.D. When you see Brewtality Inc. live, expect a raw, energetic, non-stop Ramones-style set with beers held high overhead. The guitars are loud yet distinctive, and the bass lines throw up all over you as the drums pound away at you like a whiskey hangover. If you’re on the wagon, Brewtality Inc. may just knock you off and run you over.
