…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead Austin, TX https://www.facebook.com/
. . . And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead’s explosive indie-prog is defined by the push and pull of Conrad Keely’s epic mysticism and Jason Reece’s primal punk surge. The band will embark on a short tour through the U.S. beginning in March. The band will play the entirety of 2002′s Source Tags & Codes and other songs from their decade-spanning catalog, and will return to the studio after the tour concludes.
Seryn Denton, TX https://www.facebook.com/
Seryn is a 6 piece band who calls Denton, Texas their home. When listening to the well layered textures of guitars, ukulele, accordion, bass, viola, banjo and various percussion, it’s hard to imagine This Is Where We Are is the band’s debut effort. The band’s strength resides in their vast musical talent and understanding of dynamics.
Wild Moccasins Houston, TX https://www.facebook.com/
Behind the infectious rhythms and pulsating beats of Houston peripatetic pop troupe Wild Moccasins, there is undeniable chemistry. It’s a combustion of frenetic sounds that expands like an exploding star, on dance floors as the eclectic quintet sweats it on stage and on their wide-ranging album, 88 92. Wild Moccasins provide escapism of the most visceral kind, those times where you forget everything – that job, those bills, your loved ones – and live in the moment.
The Suffers Houston, TX https://www.facebook.com/
The Suffers are a ten-piece band from Houston, TX who are redefining the sound of Gulf Coast Soul, intertwining elements of Classic American Soul with Rock & Roll. Both sonically and visually arresting, the large ensemble packs each position of the rhythm section and horn section with a level of talent and taste that provides the perfect foundation for singer Kam Franklin’s massive voice. The band’s sincerity and emotion are laid bare in their music, which has garnered an audience so broad and varied that they may prove to be the panacea for a jaded and stratified live music scene.
The Black and White Years Austin, TX https://www.facebook.com/
Austin-based art rock band The Black and White Years are pleased to announce their latest full-length album. Available on January 21, 2014 via Modern Outsider, Strange Figurines, features a collection of ten tracks completing their most compelling work to date.
Goodnight Ned Dallas, TX https://www.facebook.com/
Goodnight Ned is a group from Dallas, TX. Don’t bother trying to define their sound, just enjoy the instant familiarity that comes from over eight decades of influence. Since their formation in 2010, the band has grown and acquired hard-earned notoriety for their high energy live shows and fearless embrace of all influences. This band of brothers is keyboard fueled and guitar-driven. They engage audiences with harmonies galore, songs you will sing to and drumbeats that will get your feet movin’.
The Phuss Fort Worth, TX https://www.facebook.com/
The Phuss play fast, loud, dirty rock & roll. The three-piece from Fort Worth, TX, are best described as Garage Rock and loud as hell.
We are also proud to announce Downtown Dallas, Inc, Shiner Bock, Chevy Music Showcase & WFAA as our sponsors. They’ve been an integral part of our success and we look forward to growing with them in the future.
Aside from incredible live music, the festival will also feature food trucks, arts & crafts, merch booths and outdoor bars. Plus, it is a family friendly atmosphere with plenty of special activities for kids. There’s even a dog park as well (pups welcome).
