Thanks to everyone that made it to our show in Austin. It was great seeing so many old friends. We also had a chance to catch up with Charlie Sexton before our set. Still a nice guy, and was fun talking about music for a little bit. We’ll see you again soon Austin!
Here’s a preview from Space City Rock about the band and this weekend’s Yes Indeed Music Festival. Good stuff, thanks Jeremy!
I wasn’t actually sure if longtime H-town rock band dUNETX was actually going to be playing Yes, Indeed! this year — they weren’t on at least one list I’ve seen — but then yesterday I saw the official word from the band themselves, so here we are. And that’s a very, very good thing, because I seriously want these guys to keep playing until the end of time.
Now, for a little bit of brutal honesty: there was a long, long period where I just couldn’t get into this band. I liked them, sure, and they’re good, good dudes, an integral part of the scene here, but it just wasn’t my thing. Over the years, though, they’ve seriously grown on me, in large part due to the prodding of YI! organizer (and SCR writer) Jason Smith. They’re fun and bright and shiny and fuzzy and cheery, like one giant vat of retro-fied power-pop all melted down and forged into a massively dense, sugary-sweet, overwhelming lollipop of pop-rock goodness. Listening to these guys brings me back to the Good Old Days of H-town Music, when it seemed preordained that bands like The Jinkies and 30footFALL would one day rule the world (if only, dammit).
The band will be on KPFT 90.1Wide Open Spaces with Roark. It’s the Rockin’ Friday Edition. There will also be some skaters from Houston Roller Derby tagging along. Interview is at 11am Central. We’ll be talking about this weekend’s show at Revention Music Center, what the band has been up to, and playing some songs. Check it!
