Alone On The Moon (Houston, TX)
Alone on the Moon is a video-obsessed, instrumental post-rock/stoner/post-metal band from Houston, Texas. The group formed in 2012 as a collaboration between Joe Lovchik (guitar) and Seth Johnson (bass). Joe and Seth met through mutual friends and found they had the same vision for a heavy, instrumental sound. Nathan Smith (drums) was quickly recruited to fill out the jam sessions, and the trio began writing. Soon, the band made a unique impression in their hometown with their epic songcraft and psychedelic projections. Guitarist Ahmad Saad joined Alone on the Moon in 2015, adding a rich, new layer to the group’s heady outpourings of distortion.
Alone on the Moon recorded its first demo EP in 2015 at Big Door Studios. The group has headlined concerts throughout the Greater Houston area, delivering deep and potent grooves accompanied by mind-bending lights, lasers and videos.

Come celebrate the Houston debut of Morning Scales the Mountain, a free-rock trio of Houston veterans Tom Carter (The Mike Gunn, Charalambides) and John Kennedy (Dry Nod, Cyclops Joint) with Brazilian soundscapist Ramiro Matéria (Índios Eletrônicos, ruído/mm).
Morning Scales the Mountain (Houston, TX)
Morning Scales the Mountain (MStM) is an electric rock trio weaving guitar wail and omnidirectional percussion into high-density (and high-volume) improvised rock epics. Formed in Texas in 2017, the trio is composed of guitarist Tom Carter (Charalambides), Houston drummer and noisemaker John Kennedy, and Brazilian soundscapist Ramiro Matéria on guitar and bass.
Tom Carter’s electric guitar work weaves strands of melody, drone, fuzz, and charged silence into intricately detailed instant compositions. Best known for his work with iconoclastic acid-folk improvisers Charalambides (which he co-founded with Christina Carter in 1991 in Houston, TX), Tom Carter has focused on solo performances and recordings since 2012. Pitchfork selected his double LP Long Time Underground as the number-one experimental album of 2015.
Drummer and multi-instrumentalist John Kennedy emerged from the lysergic brew of Houston’s late-20th-century outsider music scene as a member of the mysterious electronic project Jesus Penis. Since then, he’s explored the many psychedelic byways of the Texas experimental scene, supplying percussion for free improvisers (the JDP Trio, with Paul Winstanley and David Dove) as well as zoned-out rockers (Dry Nod, Run Trip and Fall, and Rusted Shut). Kennedy’s electroacoustic project Cyclops Joint has been releasing recordings in various formats since 1991.
Guitarist and bassist Ramiro Matéria (aka André Ramiro) has deep roots in the noise, experimental and post-rock communities of Brazil. He is best known as co-founder of the expansive and cinematic Curitiban post-rock band ruído/mm. From 2006-2007, Ramiro operated as one-half of the experimental duo Índios Eletrônicos, a psychedelic stew of guitars and electronics pulling influences from all corners of the universe. Ramiro has performed with numerous rock bands, including Oaeoz, AlphaPsicotics and Iconoclastas.
