Otis The Destroyer, The Continuums @ Lamberts

Lamberts – Conquered

One of The Cosmic Clash’s contributor and really good friend, Sonya Hernandez, invited me to go check out Otis the Destroyer at Lamberts on October of 2016. I was totally stoked since she knew that I’ve been wanting to check them out for a while. Otis the Destroyer did not disappoint as they delivered a powerful performance and went for the kill. You got to check out their 4 song, Belushi EP on Bandcamp.

I was also impressed with Lambert’s very chill lounge setup located on the second floor.  A venue I  would totally want to hangout at again.

While waiting for the headliner we also caught Austin based, The Continuums who delve into many aspects of music such  as traditional rock to that psychedelic feel. Their facebook bio describes them as ” a grab-your-girl-and-a-sixpack-and-groove kind of band.”

The Continuums have great stage presence and keep you engaged with their performance and music.

Sluur, Lake of Fire, Nalgadas @ Hotel Vegas (El Paso Invades)

El Paso Invades Austin!


Yes it is true, El Paso invaded Austin with it’s special forces and gave everyone some much needed Nalgadas!

Not to mention that Sluur left everyone shoegazed till there was nothing left but a Lake of Fire!


Ladies and gents, Sluur is one of my favorite live bands with a shoegazey feel that has a touch of that post punk groove. Their sound sinks into my soul leaving me mesmerized and feeling pretty chill.

Check out Sluur’s release, Choice, is available on Bandcamp.

Fortunately there are bands out there that help me feel alive and untouchable. Give me PUNK ROCK any day! Nalgadas most definitely live up to their name, Leo Lara’s (Chief) crazy fucking drumming and Rat Benatar’s thundering vocals!  I love me some Nalgadas!

Lake of Fire aka (Lago De Fuego) I believe was originally from El Paso but has since relocated to Austin, TX.  Last time I saw Lake of Fire was at 2016’s SXSW show at Stay Gold. (The Cosmic Clash SXSW Post, Lake of Fire). Their Facebook describes their Genre as an amalgamation. Lake of Fire is definitely an amalgamation that comes out psychedelically beautifully. Check out their Fire Friendly EP on Bandcamp.

Mariclaire Gamble, if you ever read this,you and the gentlemen (David Tenczar, Andrew Bennett, Drew SIlverman, Jay Cesak) are pretty dope! I don’t know if anyone uses that word anymore… anyway.. . Here is looking back at 2016.

While trying to get through the crowd from one stage to another, I was able to catch the last song from the Shivery Shakes. These gentlemen have been around for a bit and they never fail to give an energetic performance.

Mobley is a multi instrumental genius whose beats, guitar riffs, and vocals are spot on. Mobley has so much going on throughout his performance, it’s insane. Without further delay, Mobley’s intro.

Lowin, Riders Against The Storm @ Float Fest 2016

Lowin, Riders Against The Storm @ Float Fest 2016

Seems like I am always trying to catch up on all the cool and awesome music that keeps on rolling in.  So here is one of couple of blitz posts that should bring us back up to speed.

Lowin –  members Sara Houser, Chris DeGeorge, Michael David Sanders and Nathan Ribner put on a great show. This band’s sound is tight, energetic and compliments Sara Houser’s magnificent vocals. I would love to catch Lowin on a smaller venue but watching them at Float Fest was a ton of fun. Super happy I got to see them!

Riders Against The Storm – What can I say about this group but that they are fucking great! Wow! Energetic, awesome musicianship that connects with the audience. I had a chance to hang out with Qi Dada(vocals) for a couple of minutes before she took the stage, she is a super cool lady with a ton of talent, what am I saying they are all talented!

I recommend watching out for any of these groups and you won’t be disappointed.
