Engine Fly

By: Laurie Gallardo

This is, hands down, the one-two-three knockout this weekend. Three KUTX-featured artists are taking over Germania Insurance Amphitheater tomorrow, Saturday Sept. 24:

  • If you haven’t guessed by now, Khruangbin is a trio of magical beings from outer space. In their earthly forms, bassist Laura Lee, guitarist Mark Speer and drummer Donald Johnson are a Houston band kicking genre to the curb, flowing in any areas between funk, psych, surf rock, and a broad palate of Latin influences with the heaviest of bass. Like, mad bass. This is love.
  • Just hand over the street cred to Thundercat. After delivering all the thrash with Suicidal Tendencies, songwriter/bassist/singer Stephen Lee Bruner went on to produce four solo albums and worked with producer Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar. All of this, and a two-time Grammy winner. Thundercat will, indeed, show you the way.
  • Euphoric. Invigorating. And defiant in the onslaught of the Black Dog – of which there are more than one. Genesis Owusu creates art from the darkest recesses of the heart and mind, channeling it into a unique, cathartic and genre-transcending exhilaration. Recharge with this Studio 1A performance. You’re welcome.

Doors for the show open at 6:30 p.m. Don’t miss a single set.

Though this time, those swirling cosmic Brit-psych and post-punk vibes hit close to home amidst dreams of…breaking out of lockdown and maybe flying off to the beach? Hell yes. At the time of production, the notion of lockdown was […]

Speaker Bump Special

It’s the Speaker Bump Social, though leave it to your AMM host to keep referring to tonight‘s line-up at Hole In the Wall as the “Speaker Bump Special.” But it is special! Don’t forget to get your hands on Ben Buck’s B Sides remix compilation, put together by the ATX-based rapper/beatbox himself. From traditional to […]
