When the Docs are playing, the sheer energy coming from the stage will pull you in, and the aura they create in the room will keep you riveted. Pulling from a wide range of influences and diverse backgrounds, they evoke the full range of emotion in their audiences with a raw, passionate sound that fuses the soft, harmonious tones of traditional Southern music and the aggressive energy of progressive rock. This is a tight-but-loose four-piece band that stretches and pushes the boundaries of current rock and roll. But The Docs didn’t start out as a high energy, in-your-face modern rock band. Each member brought his musical influences and professional background to the mix.
Poor Pilate are a band that has a great sound, plays beautifully, and kicks it live, but they deliver where it matters most – the songs. The band explodes with a joyous, energetic immediacy rising from an organic sound that rides proudly alongside Houston bands like Buxton and Bright Men of Learning. Songwriter David Lascoe’s sharp songwriting and liquor soaked delivery is paired beautifully with guitarist Rich Talbot whose understated, melodic approach echoes the efficient craftsmanship of a Mike Campbell and it all comes together with the driving and at times raucous rhythm section of bassist Jack Gordon and drummer Bryant Talley.
Hydra Melody is a rock band from San Antonio.
