Reverend Horton Heat
Let Me Teach You How To Eat
On their 1992 debut Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em, the group established the template of their no-frills, high-intensity approach to rockabilly, and though celebrity producers helped beef up the sound of their next two albums -- Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers on 1993's The Full Custom Gospel Sounds and Ministry's Al Jourgensen on 1994's Liquor in the Front -- the Reverend's essential style changed little with time. They would explore a more introspective side on 2004's Revival, embrace their country influences on 2009's Laughin' & Cryin' with the Reverend Horton Heat, and add a pianist to the mix on 2018's Whole New Life, but on-stage and in the studio, Jim Heath and his bandmates could always be depended upon to deliver some of the twangy fire that their fans loved.

INTXS plus WeBop
"The Cyndi Project"
Friday 7/8/2022 :8:00 PM
Doors Open 7:00 PM
(From All Music.com - Stephen Thomas Erlewine) INXS hailed from the pubs of Australia, which is part of the reason the band never comfortably fit in with new wave. Even when they branched out into synth pop on their early recordings, they were underpinned by a hard, Stonesy beat and the Jagger-esque strut of lead singer Michael Hutchence. Ultimately, these were the very things that made INXS into international superstars in the late '80s. By that time, the group had harnessed its hard rock, dance, and new wave influences into a sleek, stylish groove that made their 1987 album Kick a multi-million-selling hit. While that sound was their key to stardom, it also proved to be their undoing; INXS became boxed in by their style of Stonesy pop-funk in the early '90s, when audiences became entranced by harder-edged alternative rock. The band continued to tour and record for a dedicated fan base until Hutchence's untimely death in 1997 brought the band's heyday to a close.
INTXS "What You Need"
Appropriately for a band that featured three brothers, INXS had their roots in a family act, the Farriss Brothers. The group came together while keyboardist Andrew Farriss, the middle brother, was attending high school with vocalist Michael Hutchence. The two formed a band with bassist Gary Beers. Simultaneously, guitarist Tim Farriss was playing in various groups with his friend, guitarist/saxophonist Kirk Pengilly. Eventually, the two groups merged in 1977, with Jon Farriss joining the unified lineup as drummer. Two years later, when Jon graduated from high school, the band renamed itself INXS, moved from Perth to Sydney, and began to play the pub circuit. Within a year, the group landed an Australian record contract and released an eponymous debut on Deluxe in 1980. (Read more @All Music.com)

(From ishimusic.com) Ishi was born as an experiment between friends in Dallas, TX. In 2006, JT Mudd & Brad Dale set out to create a sound that would redefine their own voice in modern day music. This weekend they're at White Oak Music Hall to present just that.
Their vision was to blend the classic, soulful story-telling and organic instrumentation of traditional folk music, with the infinite sonic possibilities offered through electronic production. Experimentation quickly evolved into a journey of sound that would ultimately lead to Ishi’s debut, Through the Trees, released May of 2010 and Digital Wounds April of 2013.
Juno released on September, 16th for the band’s fifth independent release and the third EP of their catalog. The new collection of songs range from funk, nu disco, and indie rock bathed in the gospel of Prince/LCD Sound System. Ishi teamed up again with UK artist James Marsh most known for his creative album concepts with experimental UK band Talk Talk.
ISHI - Disco Queen
As musicians who consistently use their music and live shows to uplift and inspire their fans, Ishi has decided to be leaders in the music industry by using their voice to improve the quality of life for those suffering from various cognitive diseases. The release of their new ep, Juno will benefit non-profit Music Is Our Weapon who provides personal music programs for those battling Alzheimer’s and dementia, PTSD, Autism, Parkinson’s and various other cognitive disorders. 50% of all digital sales raised by the EP will go directly to Music Is Our Weapon’s ongoing effort to provide a sustainable source of digital music in healthcare environments to increase life quality. By providing caregivers with the tools and support necessary to serve those in need with access to the music they love, they will be able to simultaneously collect data to further understand the power of music as medicine.
Ishi’s ability to successfully walk the line between an ambitious studio act and a multi-sensory live experience allows them to engage their audiences in an uplifting celebration of life. Their subtle undertones of inner-exploration combine to create a concert experience that is unequivocally one-of-a-kind. Each night, Ishi intends to create an entirely unique environment of mysticism, awareness, love and acceptance. Adored by fans and critics alike, there is no denying that Ishi is an immersive experience that everyone should discover.

Swimwear Department makes songs about two topics: swimming pools and shopping malls.
The Houston, Texas dance-punk band brings party power reminiscent of Electric Six, DEVO, and The B-52s. Fans frequently join enthusiastic shout-alongs and improvised line dances.
Swimwear Department - Mallster
NPR Tiny Desk Contest 2021
Ned Gayle (bass), Jack Gordon (drums), Matt Graham (vocals), and Jeremy Grisbee (keys) have been making music as Swimwear Department since 2017. One journalist called their music "...refreshingly frivolous proof that you can take subject matter that on the surface level may seem a bit silly and provide emotionally satisfying and even profound experiences."

Bruce Bruce's career skyrocketed after receiving the highest ratings ever as the host of “BET’s 10th Anniversary Comic View” for two seasons, Bruce returned to the BET family as the two-time host “Coming to the Stage.” Bruce went on to star in his own “Comedy Central Presents” special which he followed with a release of his one-hour comedy special DVD “Bruce Bruce Live”(2003) and more recently on “Losin’ It” (Showtime 2011).
On the big screen, Bruce has created crazy characters like the “Lime Pimp” in Hair Show starring Mo ‘Nique, and “Dewayne” the lovable security guard in The Wash starring Snoop Dog and Dr Dre. He also appeared as Larry’s buddy, “Big Shug,” in the Larry he Cable Guy: Health Inspector, XXX: State of the Union, hilarious “Maitre D” in the Mike Epps’s The Trap and as the memorable “Golf Ball Eddie” in Who’s Your Caddy. On the small screen, Bruce recently turned a small role as “Brother Davis” into a hilarious foil for Loretta Devine’s character in “Family Reunion.” Bruce’s bigger than life personality has transcended his personality onto the music video scene as well. He has made guest appearances in videos with Ludacris and the Ying Yang Twins (after being named in their hit song “Salt Shaker”).
White People Always Pay On time
He appeared in the monstrous 1996 summer hit “Come On Ride the Train (Ride It)” by Quad City DJs and can also be seen in Outkast’s music video “So Fresh, So Clean.” Most recently, Bruce appears with Anthony Anderson in the KEM music video, “You’re On My Mind.”
Bruce’s memorable festival appearances include the prestigious, Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in both Chicago (2009) and Montreal (2000 /2003/2008), Laffapalooza in Atlanta, GA (1999-2002) and the US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen (2002).
