Saturday 13 October 2018 – Only Beast, The Human Circuit, Londale

Only Beast (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/pg/OnlyBeast

“On their latest album, Again, they not only forge their own path, they burn the bridge that got them there. Full of rock throttle and intense vocals, there are songs here that sound like pain and desperation chimed from the highest towers. This band always does things in a fresh and new way, and the end result of their characteristically novel approach is one of the most intriguing and engagingly different albums I’ve heard in a very long time.” – David Garrick, Free Press Houston

“Collectively, their name suits them – Salinas goes from nuanced to a frenzied, blood-in-the-water attack in a heartbeat; Bernick’s instrumental savvy drives the band’s sound, but there’s something wild and instinctual about his playing, too. Renee prowls the stage like a predator, waiting until the perfect moment to pounce with a big voice expressing timeless motifs. The trio’s dynamic live show has made them one of Houston’s premier bands …” – Jesse Sendejas Jr., Houston Press

“Houston’s Only Beast are a fascinating band, combining elements of post-punk, progressive rock, and goth rock into a sound all their own, with vocalist Danielle Renee wailing atop the mélange like a 21st century Siouxsie Sioux.” – Kelly Minnis, 979 Represent

 

The Human Circuit (Austin, TX)

The Human Circuit is an independent, Pysch-Pop, Alt-Rock band from Austin, Texas with catchy orchestral grooves ranging from the mystic vibes of David Bowie to the intricate arrangements of Arcade Fire.

“delightfully bizarre, intensely passionate and boy are we glad to have them in Austin.” … “guaranteed to get you on your feet”… “both wild and precise; playful and serious.” — Georgina Cook, KUTX Austin

Londale (Houston, TX)

How would you define a sound that’s a cross between Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, REM, and Glenn Frey?  It’s a trick question. A sound like that defies genre. That’s exactly the goal of Houston’s hottest new band, Londale. Veterans of the Houston music scene, they’ve connected to create unique music that’s heartfelt, edgy, and laid back. The result – an eclectic sound reminiscent of the aforementioned legends. It’s an unexpected combination, but once you hear it, it just feels right.
