// Amplified Heat
In a time where everybody has to put a label on a band to try and separate or distinguish what kind of music they play, Amplified Heat adopts Lemmy from Motorhead's philosophy....ROCK AND ROLL! Emitting a truly menacing blues psych-rock sound from four massive walls of double stacked Marshall and Fender cabinets and a 1966 Ludwig drum kit in between — Amplified Heat ...continues the Texas tradition of pure, fearless rock and roll.
Formed in February 2013, Coattails have gained a notable local audience as well as a regional following. Their debut self-titled LP was independently released in early 2016 and are currently working to release a follow-up EP due out summer 2018. Coattails are a modern rock band that pulls from the late 60's rock-n-roll pioneers, garage rock, and early delta blues. Their sound is aggressive with an interlacing of soft and spatial sounds capes.
Megafauna formed after established Brooklyn shredder Dani Neff packed her bags for the move to Austin, TX. Once there, local session players Will Krause and Cameron Page filled out the group. After several months of work through 2009, Megafauna has become one of the most sought after rock experiences in Austin, on a mission to bring the juncture of pop, progressive, and experimental fringes of rock to the fore-front of an Austin scene.
A musical tale of adventures with funky, experimental rock grooves and colorful, psychedelic riffs and solos, breaking your imagination's borders!
