The Guillotines (Houston, TX)
Although hailing from Houston, TX, The Guillotines has it’s roots in the underbelly of the legendary ’70’s Cleveland and New York punk scenes.
Founded by the infamous Robert Conn on guitar, (The Pagans, AK-47’s, The Plague, and Defnics ) with co-founder and wife, Jewels on bass, their only goal was to play the real, gritty, full throttle punk rock that they helped create back in the 70’s in Cleveland/NYC….. The band, since it’s inception have shared and destroyed stages with many of their punk vet friends like Cheetah Chrome, The Zeros, The Vibrators, The Meatmen, Angry Samoans, Texas Terri Bomb, just to name a few….. The band is rounded out byGlenn Gilbert (Prophets Of Addiction)on lead guitar and Stevieryder on drums.
Their sound is pure and the attitude is fierce. Rock n roll is back with a fury!! Enjoy!
Legacy Lives (San Antonio, TX)
Legacy Lives is now Justin Delashmutt (drums), Jason Lomas (guitar/vocals), and Vee Riot (bass) and we are now rocking hard! Our set list is a mix of mostly original songs written by the band and a few hand picked cover songs. We draw influence and inspiration from bands such as Dinosaur jr., Rancid, The Ramones, The Misfits, Backyard Babies and other bands that are punk in origin or paved the way for other great bands. Originality is what makes this band and originality is what will drive the band forward in our musical journey. Legacy Lives has gone from an idea for a music project to a full on band writing and playing songs that embody the roots of rock’n’roll and punk in it’s 6 year history. Presently, it is 2017 and we are expecting a great year, so come celebrate music and rock’n’roll with us! See you at the show!
The Genzales (Houston, TX)
Taking their name (and inspiration) from Johnny Thunders’ birth surname, the Genzales formed in early 2017 with the idea of just writing some songs and playing ragged and energetic rock and roll: punk rock molded in the form of not only their namesake, but other miscreant rock and roll punk forebears as well like Loney-era Groovies, Real Kids, Nervous Eaters…the Lazy Cowgirls. Messy, noisy and never earnest, and always sullied by their roots, their songs always nod to the Kinks and the Pretty Things. Band members consist of remnants of Houston bands like the Born Liars, modfag and the Freakouts, as well as the B-Movie Rats from Los Angeles. New single for ‘Don’t Smoke in Bed’ on Raw Ramp Records coming soon.
