Lick Lick * Toxic Water * Only Beast says
Lick Lick (Austin, TX)

LiCK LiCK plays prunk—a peppery mixture of prog and punk rock. LiCK LiCK loves nerdy off-kilter rhythms and good ol' power chords. Their music is propulsive and compulsive. LiCK LiCK’S second CD, Good Touch Bad Touch, comes out this year on Australian Cattle God Records. LiCK LiCK is fronted by the captivating MO Perce and propelled by rockers whose résumés include Opposite Day, Megafauna, Sprawl, and The Fence Cutters. LiCK LiCK makes songs out of sass, guts, and science.

Only Beast (Houston, TX)

Sometimes people say things about Only Beast. Here are some of those things:

“Of course, one of the more impressive three pieces in Houston, Only Beast will bring their Sleater Kinney meets Yeah Yeah Yeahs sound to the show after Kirby. If you haven’t seen Only Beast, I’d seriously suggest catching them, as they have such a magnetic energy, that you’re mesmerized by their stage presence. Their singer Danielle Renèe might be one of the strongest vocalists in Houston that you’ll hear in a long time.” – David Garrick, Free Press Houston

“Houston’s Only Beast are a fascinating band, combining elements of post-punk, progressive rock, and goth rock into a sound all their own, with vocalist Danielle Renee wailing atop the mélange like a 21st century Siouxsie Sioux.” – Kelly Minnis, 979 Represent

“Only Beast has a great sound and are true professionals. This makes them a credit to Houston rock and any lineup they are on.” – Debrah Skelton, Red Publication

“I stumbled across Only Beast simply because of their name and instantly became enamored of their dynamic and incredible front woman Danielle Renee, and the sheer raw power of the rock and roll that comes pouring out of her throat. Let’s turn our attention now to another key ingredient […] drummer John Salinas. The man is like some sort of ordered chaos who beats up and down the sides of songs in a whirlwind of rhythm that always feels like its on the verge of falling apart, the way a death-defying trapeze act does. It never falls, though.” – Jef With One F, Houston Press

“Only Beast – friends have raved about ‘em for a while now […] their blues-tinged prog-rock is pretty damn mesmerizing, especially with frontwoman Danielle on the mic. Definitely going to have to hear more …” – Jeremy Hart, Space City Rock

“An explosive mix of stripped-down, no nonsense punk, melodic rock, and blues. Their live performances are sure to melt your face off, make your ears bleed, and give your musical soul the nitrous-oxide high it was looking for.”- Nathan Hudgins

“Anti-matter in leprous hands. They will summon demons and use them as coffee tables to prop their feet on.”- Stephan B. Wyatt
