Scott H. Biram @12:00am, The Joe Jacksons @10:00pm – $12 at the door @9:30pm. No advance tickets. 21+ only.
The self proclaimed ‘Dirty Old One Man Band’ successfully, and sometimes violently, lashes together blues, hillbilly and country precariously into raucous punk and godless metal. Years of non-stop touring have honed his assault to a fine edge; his wide-eyed throw downs in the First Church of Ultimate Fanaticism routinely lead giddy followers to a fiery baptism.
Biram ain’t no candy-ass singer/songwriter either, sweetly strumming songs about girls with big eyes and dusty highways. HELL NO!!! His singing, yodeling, growling, leering and brash preachin’ and hollerin’ is accompanied by sloppy riffs and licks from his 1959 Gibson guitar and pounding backbeat brought forth by his amplified left foot. The remainder of this one-man band consists of an unwieldy combination of beat-up amplifiers and old microphones strung together by a tangled mess of guitar cables.
The Joe Jacksons are a rock ‘n’ roll band from Austin, TX featuring former Weary Boys front man Mario Matteoli and local top guns Rob Bacak (Crooks) and Zac Bryant (Sounds del Mar). Together they mix Stooges-era sleaze with early 80’s punk and a little Seattle grunge for good measure. Hold on to your faces, lest they melt right off.
