Diesel and Dixie
Rising from the darkness, Virginia drummer, Adam "The Hacksaw" Brady's furious backwoods pounding was Floridafied by True Lawton's "The Swamp's a Burnin" electric guitar stylings. The duo began to create a fiercely hard-hitting original blend of blues-infused Southern Rock. Both members were born of a background of fast-paced hard and heavy music. Influences ranging from bands such as Lords, Converge, Valient Thorr, Mastodon, Coliseum, Reflux, etc. The bond that glued the two together was their odd interpretation and love of Hank Sr. style country and Burnside style blues.
The pair relocated to New York City shortly after they began. There they found the undeniable focus of their musical direction. The eighteen wheeler rampage of thunderous mayhem blazed its way through the next year until truckstop hop-on, Richard "The Reaganator" Earnest joined the stagecoach of Southern runaways providing the purest desert blasting steeple toppling laser scream vocal explosions. With the core of members complete, the crazed country rebels decided to bring their unique brand of justice to the place it would truly be appreciated - Texas. The boys have resided there ever since.
With the wagons gathered at the crossroads of the dirty south and the old west, the gang thought they had met the devil himself when in rode Georgia's own twist throttlin two-wheeled murderous shot gun blasting Bradley 'The Rebel Yell' Parmer. His ground shakin last confederate standing come and shave it four stringed canon fire brought the band to all new lows.
When the searing release of their first full length entitled, "Shortwave Rodeo", they continue to blow the minds of those who are lucky enough to be onlookers. Attendees have described their shows as an intense fusion of hilarious show antics, Zeppelin-esque freeform improvisational transitions, and just plainly a hell of a great time. In an age where the music world is awash with bands more concerned with connecting through facebook than their music, Diesel and Dixie stampedes right over those lame asses. If you're in the mood for an old school auditory ass kickin' your best bet is to seek out, with all your strength, the next Diesel & Dixie show.
The Graveyard Boulevard
The Graveyard Boulevard is a rock 'n' roll band from North Carolina that blends elements of metal and punk with dark comedy and things that go bump in the night. The band has refined a music style of catchy tunes without compromising an aggressive attitude
Biggy Stardust and His Wretched Hive
Biggy Stardust and His Wretched Hive is a 4-piece punk outfit hailing from Charlotte, NC. We've played many shows with local acts but have also been booked to open for several national and regional acts, such as The Misfits, Antiseen, Agent Orange, The Mentors, Joe Buck Yourself, The Have Nots, The Sex Slaves, Scott H. Biram and Thunderlip. We also played The Heavy Rebel Weekender in 2009.
We released our first studio album, Never Met A Guitar I Didn't Wanna Destroy, in 2009. We recorded the album in true DIY fashion with minimal equipment. The sounds you'll hear are lean, mean and raw. We're in the process of writing songs for a second album and playing shows around the region.
Don't look for "-core" or "-abilly" on the end of any description. It's just rock-n-roll, not too far removed from The Ramones or the Kinks. There's no political message or strong sense of fashion, despite being the best looking band in town. Not cool enough for ya? Not "indie" or "emo"? Fuck off.
