What do you get when you meld "fast/loud rules" with the Tex-Mex accordion? Piñata Protest and their invigorating and pointed "punk rock-y-roll." The band "forcefully take the raw essence of conjunto into warp-speed tempos and punky aggression," raves the San Antonio Current, which rates them as "one of the most original forces on the local music scene." And now with their national debut album on Saustex Records, Plethora, Piñata Protest take their infectious and bracing South Texas slamdance to the rest of America and the planet at large. The band bristles with a sound that has been dubbed "amphetamine norteño," "ranchero punk" and "puro pedo [no bullshit] punk rock" while also targeting the adversities and emptiness of modern life with dead-eyed aim. As the San Antonio Current observes, "Piñata Protest's Álvaro Del Norte is doing for the accordion what the Dropkick Murphys do for the bagpipes, playing what's often considered an embarrassing grandpa-music relic with youthful angst and energy, expanding the punk-rock template beyond London and NYC."
Boss Riot is Vicki Tovar on vocals and melodica, Jake Olsen on lead guitar and vocals, Ryan Reeves on rhythm guitar, Chris Yates on organ, Mike Burke on bass, and Rob Tovar on drums and percussion. The band stays rooted in a vintage sound and brings a modern twist that will please music lovers everywhere."
Rude King's new release "Ruder, Better, Faster, Stronger" has been a well received follow-up to their debut EP, "Rude To The Last Drop".
Known for putting on exciting live performances, Rude King enjoys success as a hot act in the Midwest, Southwest and along the West coast. Rude King is equally comfortable headlining or playing a supporting role for other regional and national touring bands. Rude King has shared the stage with many of the greats in Ska music like The Toasters, Mustard Plug, Deals Gone Bad, Big D and the Kids Table, Fishbone, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Bad Manners, Chris Murray, and more.
Locally, you'll find Rude King at every ska show actively promoting a growing Dallas Ska scene and playing local top notch venues like Trees, Liquid Lounge, Prophet Bar, and many more.
Through a steady touring schedule, Rude King is finding bigger and broader audiences; solidifying their place in the national Ska music scene. By continuing to write great songs performed by inspired musicians, they continue to impress fans and gain the respect of their peers and fans around the US and internationally.
