Watch & Listen
The Phuss play fast, loud, dirty rock and roll. The three-piece from Fort Worth, TX, are best described as Garage Rock- loud as hell with fierce guitar riffs, punchy, raw lead bass, intense vocals, and precision drumming drenched in grease. The band formed in 2008 with front-man and guitarist Josh Fleming and drummer Trey Alfaro, adding bassist Forrest Barton in 2010. The Phuss’s second full length album, produced by Vaden Todd Lewis (Singer and songwriter of legendary Texas band The Toadies) and Robby Baxter (Moby) is full of distorted, loud, but melodic and frightfully sharp, precise rock tunes. “Their talent is overt and arresting. The result is artful and moves at a very real momentum. There is no hyperbole with The Phuss. The trio of musicians affects a posture exactly commensurate with their ability to knife through the room. Their stage strut is a claim made veracious by their impressively tight sound. It is rock and roll in its most crystalline, adrenal seductiveness.” (D Magazine 9-2010) Embarking on a vigorous touring schedule armed with a new killer album and the rabid support of music critics, high profile bands and thousands of loyal fans
It Hurts to Be Dead

From Parts Unknown
Dallas, Texas' rock and roll trio, From Parts Unknown, is redefining what it truly means to be a thrilling and dynamic live band by mixing rock, punk, metal, and similar genres together and delivering it in a high energy show. What's more, the band's upcoming freshmen release is due to rival their stage performances in every way.
Singer/guitarist Ben McCracken (Chesterfield Kings, The Trusted Few), drummer Kyle Owen (Dying Ground, The Trusted Few), and upright bass player Chris Parrish (Eerie Ln, Sawed Off Sick, Hotrod Hillbillies) formed the group in 2013 and immediately went to work writing new material, perfecting their stage show, booking gigs, and recording their first release.
Come and see this very original, high-powered, and hard-hitting band of suites as soon as you can and every chance you get. Don't miss out on experiencing this immensely entertaining group!
