BOY HARSHER is a dark electronic duo that produces gritty dance beats infused with ethereal vocals, creating a sound that is eerie, intense and incredibly danceable. Augustus Muller develops the underbelly of sound with minimal beats and grinding synths, where Jae Matthews whispers, screams and chants on top. Together, the music created is somewhere between industrial, drone and confessional storytelling. Muller and Matthews both have a strong background in film and their cinematic approach translated effectively in both their recordings and live performance.

All the proceeds Mad Owl recieves for this event will go towards combating human trafficking here in Houston. Houston has become a hub for this problematic issue and we believe that the creative people of Houston hold the solutions to combating this social justice issue...

A Giant Dog is raucous ear candy culled from the hook-driven melodies of Slade, the glammy swagger of Marc Bolan, the morbid fantasy of Killer-era Alice Cooper, and the unpredictable wit of Sparks. Sabrina and Andrew’s lyrics, equal parts brutally honest, clever, and debased, have a knack for taking their idiosyncratic depravities and making them feel universal. These songs are by, for, and about the losers, freaks, and outcasts. The lonely. The terminally horny. Boozehounds and party animals. No band better speaks to the hearts of slackers, burnouts, rockers, sluts, and creeps everywhere than A Giant Dog.

The Suspects are Houston's original ska band. Before The Suspects, there were funk bands that played ska and there were reggae bands that played ska, but The Suspects were Houston's first all-ska band. Formed in 1993, broke up in 2002, and came back in 2008. Our original singer, Chris Kendrick, has rejoined us in 2015. Come and see us!

Dark Blue follow up their debut LP, ‘Pure Reality’, with ‘Start Of The World’ – a soundtrack of a decaying United States. Each song drips with the realities of atrocities happening all around us ; John Sharkey III pushes Dark Blue far beyond the post-punk meets oi sound they perfected on their earlier releases, and adds elements of brit-pop and shoegaze. A pop album that makes no apologies.
RSVP / $8 ($10 -21)
Visting the Bayou City once again, our friends Paper Bison (NoLa) are in GREAT company, with Finger Guns, Since Always and Forever Miles hosting them for this this Friday night PARTY!!
Demo tape from this new LA band, and man does it rip! Power, aggression lady-fronted hardcore punk. You can definitely hear shades of newer bands like La Misma and Sad Boys, but this isn't really as pogo-y as the later, and is a little more straightforward hardcore than the latter. If you dug the Blazing Eye demo you should absolutely get this as well... totally top-shelf stuff! - Sorry State

Although the Magnolia Housing Projects have long been demolished, a light post still stands at the corner where youth like Vockah Redu (Javocca Davis) gathered to rap and create beats. The light post marks one of the birthplaces of Bounce music, a genre of rap specific to New Orleans that has invigorated crowds throughout the South. Vockah Redu and the Cru animate the stage with their dynamic revival of dance, music, and art from the street corner to the club. More than your typical hip-hop act, this theatrical performance sets the stage for a sweaty hands down booty up good time, transforming any party, bar, or dance floor in your neighborhood.
