Hard Luck Revival (Houston, TX)

"A year-old band of alt-country troublemakers might not seem like they’re making a lot of progress if all they’ve got to show for it is two demos. But then, when that group shares a bloodline with notorious local party monsters Poor Dumb Bastards, “progress” can be a relative term. So actually, between those demos and a full slate of gigs with the likes of Joe “King” Carrasco, the Derailers and Mike Stinson, plus a prime booking at “Byron & Jana’s Hillbilly Wedding Reception” in July, Hard Luck Revival has actually accomplished quite a bit. They’re also practically the house band on KPFT’s Saturday-morning shot of honky-tonk wake-up juice, Lone Star Juke Box. But if you can’t wait until Tuesday, not to worry: Those demos we mentioned, “White Line Fever” and “Hard Luck Hard Times,” are available on YouTube, and both showcase Hard Luck Revival in their element — namely, getting up to no good."- Houston Press

Beaumonts (Lubbock, Tx)

There’s something about Lubbock. Something other than the oppressive blue sky, the unavoidable cloud of shit-smell that occasionally engulfs the city, the flat, featureless landscape, or the preponderance of teen pregnancy, boredom, alcoholism, and God. There’s music. Yes, indeed there is. The Hub City has spawned music like you wouldn’t believe. Music loved by folks the world over. Even the real “King of Rock and Roll” came from Lubbock, and if you believe that (which you’d be a damn fool not to), then it ain’t too much of a stretch to believe Lubbock is also home to the greatest country band that ever existed. That band is THE BEAUMONTS.

It wasn’t too long ago that four of Lubbock’s most loved veteran musicians decided the state of Texas country music was dismal at best, and horrifying at its worst. Somehow, over the last twenty years, it became acceptable for a group of frat-boys to show up in thrift-store AC/DC shirts, play half-ass Lynyrd Skynyrd tunes about drinking Lone Star and smoking weed, and call that “country.” Well, good friends, THE BEAUMONTS didn’t think that was “all that damn country” and decided to do something about it. What resulted was a juggernaut of essence, the trooest of troo cvntry, something akin to the creation of the universe, but with Telecasters. Behold, good friends, and delight in the majesty of THE BEAUMONTS!
