Best Open-Mike Comedy Night Houston 2013
Cactus Flowers (Houston, TX)
Drawing inspiration from late 60s psych rock to the more fuzzed out demonic tones of the 70s stoner casualties — Cactus Flowers delivers the hypnotic sound of ecstasy in slow motion. The Houston-based three piece formed in 2016 and were quickly added to the Houston music scene – playing several showcases and landing a recording session at Steamboat Amp Works.
Treehouse Project (Houston, TX)
“Got to pay your dues…” The lyric from the old song “It Don’t Come Easy” resonates for the late-blooming Treehouse Project band. Breaking in and knocking on the door of the music scene in Houston is not as easy as singing a song. Treehouse Project is not your typical band either. The trio of rock groove-makers performs a raw, progressive sound it calls “garage prog,” putting their original music out however and wherever they can.
The High Mile (Houston, TX)
Starting off as a two piece, The High Mile began as a friendship amongst college classmates and eventually grew from there. The band is now a four piece group comprised of Randy “Rasta” Mendoza on bass and vocals, Mike Wagner on guitar, Ryan Damian on drums, and Ryan Heffernan on keys, guitars, and vocals. Their combined influences bring a new twist on reggae and the Red Sun EP is the epitome of where they are at with their sound right now.
The Dirty Seeds (Houston, TX)
Face melting stoner rock with enough of a groove to trick white people into thinking they know how to dance
The Society of Bandits (Houston, TX)
The Society of Bandits is a power trio from Houston Texas, enslaved to the soul of rock and roll and eternally bound to the groove, they play a unique brand of southern rock and they play it loud.
