Chomsky, The Deathray Davies And Sealion says
All hands on deck! Three high intensity DFW bands join together to bring the rock to your face.

Hailing from Dallas, Texas, the four members of Chomsky enjoy being an anomaly in the music scene: Computer geeks that play in a rock band. Named for an East Coast intellectual, but from a place known more for mud flaps and horned frogs than linguistics or political activism. It’s this off-kilter sensibility that permeated Chomsky’s first two albums, “A Few Possible Selections for the Soundtrack of Your Life,” and, “Onward Quirky Soldiers.” Chomsky’s secret heart beats with 80s blood. Music made with drums and wires, blood and chocolate.

The Deathray Davies woo listeners with a dizzy, fuzzed-out version of retro garage pop that harks back to such '60s bands as the Kinks and the Seeds. The Davies began in 1998 as the one-man show of singer/guitarist John Dufilho, whose songwriting vault contained several songs that didn't seem fit for his present band, Bedwetter. After moving from San Antonio to Dallas, Dufilho recorded his solo debut under the Deathray Davies moniker, playing all of the instruments himself. The resulting record, Drink with the Grown-Ups and Listen to the Jazz, was released in 1999 on Idol Records.

Sealion represents the next generation of incendiary North Texas rock. This will be their first show at The Kessler, so come and embrace the intense spectacle of their being. Worth it. They're amazing.
