Corusco with Sad Cops and John Marc Kohl
November 30 @ 8:00 pm
Corusco returns to the Grand Stafford Theater on November 30th!
We all long to find a way out of darkness and reach toward hope. For Texas indie rockers Corusco, the search for balance is their driving force. Blending elements of indie rock and folk with an aggressive edge, their music brings a balance of ‘punch-you-in-the-gut’ rock and delicate moments of vulnerability. Literally meaning “I shine, I quiver, I flicker” in Latin, the name Corusco conveys the inner battle between happiness and sorrow, experiencing darkness and light at the same time – like light coruscating off water. What started as an acoustic project with vocalist/guitarist Aaron Gonzalez during Fall of 2015, would eventually form into a full band with the addition of bassist Philip Baugh and round out with drummer Carlos Garza. The collection of songs written on the band’s first tour together would become their debut EP, Don’t Give Up, released in 2016.
John Marc is a singer songwriter based out of Bryan, TX. Music is a marriage of emotion and truth. John Marc aims to write songs that are an honest expression of both. It’s easier for an artist to hide behind vagueness; protecting themselves from the introspection of others. Vulnerability is rare. But John Marc seeks to sacrifice comfortability in exchange for making a real, authentic connection. His hope is that listeners will catch on to the heart behind his music, and seek to find the same truth that makes him sing.
