There was a time when country music had less pop and a lot less sheen, reserved for honky tonks and dancehalls. In today’s crowded music landscape, it’s become harder and harder to find traditional country acts, but Houston’s The Broken Spokes are as traditional as the genre gets. Full of twangy guitars and honky tonk undertones, the five piece makes the kind of country music that would make Johnny Cash and Hank Thompson proud. On their latest release, The Broken Spokes, the band takes you back to a time when playing country & western music was more about looks while transforming you to a nearby beer joint where friends commence over a couple of tall boys.
Musician and songwriter Nick Gaitan is a Houston native who’s Gulf Coast sound is a mixture of Swamp Pop, Chicano Soul, Tejas Roots, Country and Blues.
If the sound of Houston’s Ancient Cat Society was simply left at folk, then there would be little to discuss. However, with elements of pop, Americana, and indie rock meshed with notes of doo-wop and occasional electronica; the group finds themselves with a sound that is more diverse than most bands performing today.
Input Output is a creative media lab comprised of Billy Baccam and Alex Ramos. They bring inanimate structures and spaces to life by combining art, science, technology, and architecture with the creative implementation of light and sound. Each bring innovative approaches along with unique human experiences that shape their artistic process. Together, they aim to make their mark on Houston and beyond by partnering with artists, institutions, and events such as Dream Machine, The Health Museum, Art Car Ball, Nuit Blanche, HUE Mural Festival, and Seismique Museum among many others to provide unique and novel experiences for people to enjoy.
