Watch & Listen
Amigo jams econo in the footsteps of their punk rock heroes. Their music comes from their imaginations, where shit-kickin' east Texas honky tonks are infiltrated by weird and flamboyant art school kids and, somehow, everybody gets along famously! The music is about magic and despair, gettin' yer rocks off, not gettin' yer rocks off, being filled with innocence and wonder and then the world taking a giant dump on your head. Oh, yeah, and it's fun, too – because it's ROCK & ROLL music, y'all! Amigo looks forward to seeing everybody later this year on tour in support of their debut LP, Might Could. Be cool in the world!
"Varying degrees of twang”, “Ruminative folk”, and even “Commercial pop rock”, are a few of the ways the Debonzo Brothers’ dynamic sound has been described by local media in their hometown of Raleigh, NC. With the brothers having grown up on folk and bluegrass through their musician father, and also being compared to such early indie acts like The Psychedelic Furs, it begins to paint a picture of the genre-bending territory they inhabit.
Debonzo Brothers’ first EP titled “Places” was released in the summer of 2010. The six song collection is a patchwork of changing influences put on display with the help of guest musicians Joe Kwon of the Avett Brothers and Grammy-nominated dobro player, Rick Keen. Central to the band’s relevance is its proficient and tasteful rhythm section backstopped by prolific bassist Grant Emerson and former American Aquarium drummer Chris Hibbard. An evening with Debonzo Brothers promises compelling songwriting, eccentric humor, and engaging rock and roll shaded with Americana and modern indie.
Elonzo is an independent rock band based out of Rock Hill, South Carolina area. In the heart of the Carolina Piedmont, they write songs about everyday life: sitting around on the front porch, watching the train go by, loss of loved ones, childhood, their hometown and their dreams. Elonzo’s music represents some of the most classic elements of the Southeastern United States: earnestness, good story-telling, and an awareness of tragedy that never seems too far around the corner. The band's sound can transform from stripped alt-country to a richer, more expansive vision that reflects the meaningfulness of the ties that bind us together. Mostly, it sounds like rock and roll.
