CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER
We’re sorry but all shows this weekend are canceled due to dangerous weather. Best wishes to everyone – stay safe and dry.
The Velostacks (Houston, TX)
Motorcycles. Leather. Rock n’ Roll. Vive La Velostacks!!! Although originally starting in 2013, it was 2014 that saw The Velostacks transition from a nearly dead idea to a one of Houston’s hardest working rock n’ roll bands. Following a chance meeting at a motorcycle rally, Curtis W. DeGidio (Chrome Kickers, Chelsea Hotel, The Guillotines) and Donnie Stokes (UGH, Satanic Overlords of Rock n’ Roll) quickly went to work. Houston music scene legend, J.R. Delgado (Sugarshack, Humungos, Screech of Death) was brought aboard on bass guitar, with Arthur Hayes (The Next) jumping in on drums and Richard Crishock (Mister Pink, Texas Mod Crushers, Johnny Rioux and the Seven One Three) rounding out on lead guitar. After playing a fury of shows around Houston and Austin, Dave Ng (Latchkey Kids) was brought aboard to take over drums. Playing many gigs and constantly writing, The Velostacks recorded the “I Live and Die for Rock n’ Roll”, b/w “FU and Your Cocaine & “Brain Dead Cagers” single. As the undisputed kings of motorcycle leather rock n’ roll, The Velostacks, with help of their dedicated fan base ,The Sleazestack Militia, declared their intent of raising Hell and taking names. Late 2015 saw more personnel changes as Curtis moved from rhythm guitar to guitar and lead vocals. Bass duties were picked up by Houston’s rock n’ roll legend Christian “The GFN” Best (The Down and Dirties, Hell City Kings, Whiskey River Revival) and drums passed to Nate Bandor (The Grizzly Band). With this lineup, The Velostacks will be entering the studio in December 2015 to record their first LP “Black Magic & Motor Oil” due out in early 2017.
Dead the the World (Houston, TX)
“…the real story is with Houston’s Dead To The World on the show as openers. Last year, these guys dropped an album called “Dead To The World” that echoed a mix of old school punk with the fast paced sound of modern punk music, minus the pop. Get there early, as these guys are definitely worth checking out. -Free Press Houston
The punk rock of Houston’s Dead To The World will be on hand to bring the punk element on board. They released an album this year called “Dead To The World” that harkens back to a mix of eighties and nineties punk, but without any of the pop crap that made it big. Like a mix of “Let’s Go” era Rancid mixed with the vocal style of Lee Ving. -Free Press Houston
Whorehound (Houston, TX)
Whorehound is Texas Roadhouse Metal. Diesel, one legged dogs, pickup trucks with nails in the bed and FM roads you don’t much want to change your tire .. sundown. The dirt on their boots is from a storm where it rained mud; they don’t have swagger – they have rust. Their set Sunday was the best we’d ever seen them put on. If you’re looking for something heavier that nails the metal fundamentals filtered through a punk aesthetic – be sure to check them out next time they play. – skyline.net
