Last year, Deep Cuts released its debut EP, Love Grows, cementing the group’s place among Houston’s indie upstarts. The band has earned itself a slot st this year’s Free Press Summer Festival–which is June 6-7, 2015 in Eleanor Tinsley Park–and is sure to gain new fans as a result. You can get passes to the festival online at fpsf.com.
Houston’s Second Lovers perform at this year’s Free Press Summer Festival, which is next weekend (June 6-7, 2015) in Houston’s Eleanor Tinsley Park. The band–vocalist/guitarist Nicolas Morales, vocalist Chelsea Renee, bassist Sean Spiller, drummer Josh Hammond, multi-instrumentalist John Maxwell, and guitarist Thomas Truver–has been around the local music scene since 2010. The group’s blend of folksy, rock-influenced Americana brings to mind summery, 70s-era Laurel Canyon rock.
Here’s the band’s promo for its set at Free Press Summer Festival:
Second Lovers plays at FPSF on Saturday, 6.6.15, at 12pm on the Neptune Stage. Be sure to come out early to catch the group’s set.
Noel Gallagher, formerly of Oasis, brings his latest band–Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds–back to Houston on Wednesday (5.13.15) to play at the House of Blues. The band is touring in support of its second album, Chasing Yesterday (which you can find on Amazon, iTunes, and local record stores).
It’s that time of year again — South By Southwest is happening in Austin, and Houston’s Super Happy Fun Land is getting in on the action with its annual SXSW Overflow Fest. Every night from March 12-March 25, SHFL will host a ton of bands.
Buxton‘s impressive new album, Half A Native, hits stores on Tuesday (3.3.15), and the band celebrates with a show tonight (Friday, 2.27.15) at Houston’s The Continental Club before heading out for a small tour, including playing during South By Southwest.
You can buy the album before it officially hits stores at Cactus Music.
The good people at Free Press Houston and Pegstar have announced the line-up for this year’s Free Press Summer Festival. It looks like another interesting and diverse set of artists (Band of Horses, Tycho, Belle and Sebastian, Buxton, Tear For Fears, Rocket From The Crypt, We Were Wolves, Pentagram, and Scale the Summit jump out at me immediately). Buy your passes for the festival, which will be held June 6-7, 2015, in Houston’s Eleanor Tinsley Park, here.
Houston Calling will have more coverage of FPSF, including band previews and interviews, prior to the festival.
