“…grip-it-and-rip-it rock & roll, full-throttled and hollow-body-distorted, power riffs ripping the straight and narrow.” -Austin Chronicle
“explosive drums, soulful guitar hooks and hypnotic bass-lines, this three piece has talent well beyond their collective years” -Frenchie Smith
10:00 THE BOXING LESSON
“power trio fueled by fuzzed out guitar tones and heavy, droning synth work, produces a remarkably huge sound”
11:00 LEOPOLD AND HIS FICTION
“a stripped-down outfit that spices its folk-inflected rock ‘n’ roll with heavy doses of garage and bits of psych.” —KUT
12:00 SMOKE AND FEATHERS
“We recommend Smoke and Feathers if you like bands such as Cage The Elephant, Wolfmother, and Them Crooked Vultures.” -Indie Rock Cafe
