Thursday 29 August 2019 – Grivo (ATX), DAZE, Dans Votre Monde, Daisy Chain (18+)

GRIVO (Austin, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/grivoband/

Emerging like an ornate relic of disenchanted youth, Austin-based power trio Grivo unleashes their ominously trudging sound with the debut full length Elude out November 16, 2018. Combining slow, methodical hooks and warm tube amplifiers, Grivo’s massive tones artfully re-establish the link between heavy guitars and downtempo pop to yield a potently encompassing experience. Utilizing effects as an active compositional element, Elude’s infectious riffs are brilliantly crafted and paced to allow the saturated guitars and bruising low-end to fully bloom. Within the tidal sound waves and bleak timbre, Grivo forges a distinctive personal connection that challenges the modern definitions of doom metal and shoegaze.

Saturday 24 August 2019 – Live and Loud Presents: Hooligan 45, Brewtality Inc, Hardsell, Gone Rogue

Hooligan 45 (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/TXhooligan45/
Oi from Houston Texas. Loud and in your face!

Brewtality, Inc. (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/BrewtalityInc/

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.

 


Hardsell Streetpunk (Austin, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/hardsell.punk/

Hardsell founded in the Netherlands in 1995, now in Austin TX. A powerful blend of Oi!, HC and streetpunk.

GONE ROGUE (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/goneroguehtx/

Formed in January 2019, the band was formed from the ashes of now-defunct previous bands that all called Houston, Texas home. The group’s singer and principal songwriter, Nikki Przybyla (Roots of Exile, No Resistance, Thug Boots), and drummer and former bandmate, David Klotz (Thug Boots, Loose Nukes, Landfill) teamed up to create their next musical venture – GONE ROGUE. The two partnered up with lead guitarist, songwriter and riff contributor, Andy VonKanel (The Noisepickers, Dirk Strangely & The Hatchetmen) and bass player and positive-attitude-haver, Dave Lopez (Skumbags, Broke Off!) to complete the lineup.
From The Clash to Joan Jett and The Blackhearts to Blitz and the Ramones, their sound is rooted in timeless punk classics with a firm grasp on the future of rock n roll. Some say punk or rock n roll is dead, but if that’s true, then Gone Rogue is raising the dead for an end-times apocalypse you’ll wanna show up early for – NO PUNK TIME!

For fans of: The Clash, Joan Jett, The Pretenders, Blitz, Rose Tattoo, The Business, Ramones, Cocksparrer, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, The Kinks, Vice Squad and Blondie

The Hates (Houston, TX)
http://www.thehates.com/

The Hates has been called “Houston’s first and last punk band”, and with over thirty years of blood, sweat, and that familiar mohawk, those words may be more true than their author ever knew. From his very first live show in 1978, Christian Arnheiter (now Kidd) has steered this legendary band through decades of disco, pop, new wave, hair bands, hip-hop, crossover country, and now the newest fad of tribute bands to keep punk rock alive.

In a time when many early eighties groups are getting back together to play reunion shows, the Hates have the distinction of being the oldest continuously performing unsigned punk band. And despite the love/hate relationship the local music scene has had with punk rock over the years, the Bayou City will always be their home.

 

 

Mydolls (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/MydollsHoustonTexas

Mydolls (1978-present), Houston’s original femme punk band, was formed in 1978 by guitarist and vocalist Trish Herrera, bassist Dianna Ray, guitarist and vocalist Linda Younger and drummer George Reyes. As one of the earliest art punk bands in Houston, Mydolls created a DIY sound that was as ethereal, fluid and poetic as it was politically charged and feminist. Throughout their nearly 40-year history, these pioneering musicians have paved a path for women and minorities in the music and arts scenes, and they continue to perform today with their original lineup. During the 1980s, Mydolls were interviewed by John Peel on BBC Radio and performed in Win Wenders’ Cannes award-winning film Paris, Texas. Mydolls and the Houston punk scene were the focus of a 2016 music-based lecture series at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, and the band most recently performed as part of the SPEAKEASY experimental music and art program series at Lawndale Art Center in Houston. Their latest EP, It’s Too Hot for Revolution, was released as a collectible red vinyl edition in February 2017.

 

Anarichitex (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/anarchitex/

Although the Anarchitex have roamed the post-punk musical landscape of Houston for nearly three decades, the band’s cantankerous barrage of noise remains far under the radar. … crown them alongside other local veterans like The Hates and Mydolls as both survivors and sonic entrepreneurs, albeit with a more caustic underbelly than both.v – David Emsinger, Houston Press

 

 

Screech of Death (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Screech-of-Death/277191009099085

“..the righteously named Screech of Death, a relatively new “midtempo old-school punk” combination of two Texas punk warriors and one L.A. import. The Californian is Lisafer, Screech of Death’s lead singer and bassist, whose impressive rap sheet includes hitches with storied goth-punks 45 Grave, D.I., Nina Hagen and most recently Snapper, which also featured Rikk Agnew of the Adolescents.

Joining her is drummer Arthur Hayes, an original member of notorious cornholers the Hickoids as well as The Next and Mystery Date, and a longtime San Antonio scenester who used to book bands at legendary Alamo City dive Tacoland. Although it’s his first band playing guitar, J.R. Delgado’s local punk credentials span notable names like Doomsday Massacre, the Party Owls, Anarchitex and Sugar Shack; he also owned and operated landmark punk/alternative club the Axiom long before east downtown’s so-called “Warehouse District” was trendy.” – Houston Press

Biscuit Bombs (Houston, TX)
https://www.reverbnation.com/thebiscuitbombstexasbiscuitbombs

The Texas Biscuit Bombs / The Biscuit Bombs were formed from the Slurpees from Houston, TX, who could no longer use the name, due to copyright issues. The band was itself a group, but often added Biscuit as guest singer, which led to a full-time pursuit. The band started gigging in 2001 and played frequently in Houston, Austin, Dallas, New Orleans, and even a British tour set up by Welly of Artcore zine and the band Four Letter Word. In 2005, after a series of shows in Texas, Biscuit died, quite suddenly. In 2010, Modern City Records in Lyon, France (http://www.moderncityrecords.com/) released the demos from Biscuit Bombs, two superb live shows from Rudyards Pub in Houston, TX, from 2005, and demos from Biscuit late-1980’s venture Cargo Cult. A very rare 45 was also issued in Wales, UK containing selected tracks from Cargo Cult, Biscuit Bombs, and Big Boys, since deleted. The band’s version of “Frat Cars” (The Big Boys) also appeared on a free CD insert for the zine Magyar Taraj from Hungary, edited by Balazs Sarkadi of the long-running band Bankrupt.
