Slowlikefire w/ Above It All, With Bright Lights & On to Omaha
January 22, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Doors open at 5:30pm
Music begins at 6pm
Slowlikefire was born out of necessity. All the members came from now defunct mainstay bands in the San Antonio music scene. This time, they had a plan on how to do it correctly. The songs had to be heart-felt and passionate, and the recordings had to be immaculate. The band started in February 2013 and, by August of that same year, they released their debut, “Thieves by Nature,” with the riveting “My Name is Billie Jean Davy” quickly gaining airplay on 99.5 KISS and internet radio. Their sound is a mix of everything they love about music. You will hear them compared to The Cure, Incubus, Thursday, Coheed and Cambria, but the sound is all their own.
Slowlikefire has opened up for Glassjaw, Stolas, Hail the Sun, and A Lot Like Birds, and they played at River City Rockfest 2014 along with Deftones, Kid Rock, Five Finger Death Punch, and Nothing More.
In May 2015, Slowlikefire will release their first full length “City of Echoes.”

Above It All
Three chords and the truth? What is it without the truth? There’s a good bet it means nothing to a kid at the front of the stage. ABOVE IT ALL is different. It’s a groove with air to breathe, driven by rich intensity.
Out front for ABOVE IT ALL are the guitars and vocals of Reece Clark and Josh Roa-Martinez. For Reece, with seven solid years of stellar songwriting and performing across the southwest, this 17-year old phenom is primed to explode. Josh has been writing great music and touring across the U.S. for nearly a decade. This duo is a music powerhouse! The foundation for ABOVE IT ALL is behind the kit with the recent addition of JoJo Campbell. He produces the thunder from the back of the stage!
An amazing sight is when fans are drawn in by the honest and emotional lyrics that ABOVE IT ALL weaves into their songs. The power of music is when fans of all ages can’t turn away from a significant memory in the making.
From ZZ Top to Pantera, and dozens of highly successful bands in between, Texas has always been known on the music scene as THE place where hard driving rock music found its groove. With ABOVE IT ALL, heavy pop punk rises up with groove-based, edgy songs that feature pristine tones and powerful lyrics. Music that reaches out to find you, right where you live.
ABOVE IT ALL brings a great music history, as our members hail from other successful acts — touring across the U.S., as wells playing major festivals including, South By So What?!, LifeLight Festival, Wildflower Festival, Real Texas Festival, as well as Six Flags Over Texas.
We have also shared the stage with some of the top bands on the scene including, Sleeping with Sirens, Memphis May Fire, Breathe Carolina, Crown The Empire, Hawthorne Heights, Our Last Night, I See Stars, Issues, Augustana, and Emery, among many others.
With Bright Lights
With Bright Lights is a band based on our views of current times, each song is a story told through melodic rhythms, powerful tones, and inspiring vocals. With Bright Lights aspires to encompass Rock in all of its aspects by blending the many sub genres while still keeping a mainstream sound.
On to Omaha
On To Omaha started as a few guys jamming in a bedroom and they haven’t stopped evolving since.
Based out of Orlando, On To Omaha is a three-piece band that consistently pushes the envelope of Hard Rock. With soaring guitar riffs and melodic vocals, their songs and live performances have only one goal:
Push Music Forward.
They released their first EP in September of 2014 and received overwhelming support. That EP, Human, was written with each song telling it’s own story of the human experience. After being filling up local venus and being booked as local support for some large national acts (Saving Abel, Norma Jean, Emery) in their hometown, they decided to work on a new project. This time they wanted to create a full, immersive story that spanned the entire set of songs. In addition, we wanted to involve another style of art that would allow a wider audience to enjoy the story and create a fuller and more comprehensive narrative. The idea turned in to “The Tourist” and is currently in production and is being release as each chapter is finished.
