On Friday, I sat down with Eric Owen, the drummer for Black Pistol Fire, an intense rock duo headlining the show tonight at Emo’s. Tonight the band is celebrating the release of their new album, Deadbeat Graffiti. With a sound inspired by Led Zeppelin, Chuck Berry, Nirvana, Buddy Holly, Muddy Waters, and Fleetwood Mac, Kevin and Eric are riding high on the release of their new album and already recording for their next project. Most importantly, their performance is raising money for Rebuild Texas Fund dedicated to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. First, I will go into my Q&A with Eric Owen and then I will talk about experiencing their live performance.
It’s December and the holiday season nears. Not only do I love this month, but the excitement that captures me when I think about returning to the city that birthed me expresses itself through an infinite amount of heart-born glee which radiates through my eyes at the thought of every small December miracle.
The best miracle of all: Day for Night Festival. In its second year, the festival makes a comeback, promising an immersive landscape of music and art.
It’s never dull hearing about a band’s genesis — those early chapters which always seem to be filled with so many trials and tribulations. That’s certainly the case with Demi the Daredevil, at least.
