In a world where grunge is gagged on by soft mouths and rock is dying alongside the bedsides of those who refuse to listen to Uncle Acid, the ATX based band Coattails clings to the image of Texas Fuzz Rock with a white knuckle grip. Birthed with an aggressive backbone and an intentional grit, Coattails were founded under the influence of past legends such as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and Thee Oh Sees. Rich with raw prowess and the drive to stand apart, these Southern rock pioneers are fervently working on taming the beast within the blood; bringing new meaning to control, intention, and purposeful allure. Just call them The White Stripes of the new generation; except, imagine a distorted reality where Jack White had relations with John Lennon and they birthed the band Black Lips who then adopted and raised a group of fuzz monsters with the Queens of the Stone Age, and called them Coattails. Read on to learn more on the band that is bringing new life to harmonic grunge in the ATX scene, and remember: don’t get them wet, and whatever you do? Don’t feed them after midnight.
It’s that time of year again. No matter how hard you try, you can’t escape the scorching Texas heat.
Expect the unexpected when it comes to Indie Orchestra Night 2016 (in a good way). The event will take place on March 12 at East Austin College Prep-MLK Campus from 7:30 -10 p.m. I highly recommend getting your tickets now!
It’s the most wonderful time here at OV. A time for cheer, beer and gallons of eggnog. I barely had enough time to sleep off my Thanksgiving hangover before I was floored by a holiday that requires more time spent at home, which requires a little more rum than I would like to admit.
