Watch Dark Rooms (Daniel Hart, Rachel Ballard, Casey Trela, Bobak Lotfipour) perform their “Achilles Heart (Hanuman Steals the Bow and Arrow)” during their one and only show of this year’s SXSW…yes that would be Blue Sky Over Austin at The Firehouse Lounge on March 14th.
They are an outstanding band, so please check them out:

1. BITE THE BUFFALO The British born brothers recently moved back to the UK for the opportunity to take their music to an international audience. Growing up in the mining towns of The Copperbelt, Zambia, the two got good tans and nice accents. Their debut album ‘Blue Lips’ was written in a Lighthouse off the coast of Dorset and recorded in a garage in Bath. The electric energy and demanding stage presence makes these guys stand out and we bet you’ll be seeing them soar to the top.
2. BULLET MADE STATUES With their psychedelic blend of indie rock grit , r&b grooves and punk rock energy, Bullet Made Statues makes music that is fresh, inspiring and heart-felt. While the band’s sound evokes comparisons to artists such as The Flaming Lips, Whitest Boy Alive, The Grateful Dead, Incubus, and Jamiroquai, Bullet Made Statues stands on its own. With Wes Pagano’s engaging lyricism floating atop a driving fusion of lush piano textures, funky rhythms and searing guitar, the band creates a genuinely refreshing sound you’d expect to find blaring through sold out stadiums around the globe- and perhaps you soon will.
