The Faps
The Faps
The Faps are a punk/rock 'n roll band from the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex, formed in August of 2011. With members from bands like Sleezus Fist and the Latter Day Taints (Denton TX- Austin TX), Switch Blade Floozies (Lewisville TX), and Filthy McNasty (Boston Mass.). They formed with the simple idea that making people laugh is better than preaching politics or religion/anti-religion. In the world of 24 hour news networks, government corruption, terrorism, and hate crimes The Faps are more concerned with laughter and entertainment to take the audience away from the brow beating of everyday life as a 21st century American.

They released their first EP 'Touch Your-Self Titled' in September of 2012, a 6 song EP with stirring titles such as 'Attack of the 20 ft Titties' a play off the 1958 cult classic 'Attack of the 50 ft Woman'. 'Beer Barn' about running out of beer at a keg party and having to make a last minute run chanting "Follow me like my name is Moses, we gotta get to the Beer Barn before it closes." The Beer Barn happens to be a fixture in several of the band members home town of Denton, TX. Also 'Put 'Em Up' which is intended to be an old school mosh anthem in the vein of Black Flag.

They recently released a new LP in August of 2013 'The Faps- Live in Denton TX!!' recorded at the famous Andy's Bar on August 2nd 2013. This album currently available only as a digital download has several more tracks such as 'Better Than You' an anti-love ballad in which the subject tells his girlfriend he's been cheating on her and "Baby she's better than you!" 'Rub-1-Out' is an ode to the old 1-900 sex hotlines that fell out of fashion with the rise of the internet. It even includes a climactic cover of the Regan Youth song "Degenerated".

With lots of live dates on the schedule, The Faps are a fun and jubilant show with their own brand of off color comedy and self deprecating humor rolled up into a pretty rockin' punk rock band.
The Big News
The Big News
Oklahoma City's The Big News is a Ska Punk band. They mix influences from British two tone and third wave Ska with a heavy influence of 90's punk rock.

The Big News has opened for Ska and Punk greats including Voodoo Glow Skulls, The Interrupters, The Toasters, Roddy Radiation of The Specials, Red City Radio, Los Skarnales, Dan Pothast of MU330, Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, Here Come The Mummies & Suburban Legends.

The Big News is more than just a band. It is a movement. The common idea that binds this group of musicians together is to create a new generation hungry for the truth in this convoluted and sick political world and to usher in a new generation of show goers who welcome compassion, love, and understanding for all peoples.
Sweet Chaos
Sweet Chaos
With the recent release of their debut EP, the Dallas-based hard rock duo Sweet Chaos is proving their rapid ascent within the Texas music scene is no coincidence. The young all-girl band is comprised of accomplished and extremely talented musicians. Sydney (bass guitar, lead vocals) and Payton (drums, backing vocals) have generated buzz in the music industry due to a fresh sound and hard-charging attitude that belies their ages. Combining heartfelt lyrics with an electric stage presence, audiences are left energized and wanting for more. The girls met at the School of Rock and formed the band in 2015 and are currently very proud to be working with Norman Matthew (As Strange As Angels, Murder FM) at The Sound Foundation and with Michelle Graves of the Dallas Observer. The band has a broad range of musical influences but have created a unique sound that is undeniably all their own. Some of their many influences include Royal Blood and Muse.
Sweet Chaos has earned recognition and achieved notable success over a very short period of time. They have shared stages with DOLL SKIN, were backup band for ACEY SLADE of JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS, and toured Texas as an indie artist before even turning 18. Their sold out headlining shows led to their debut single “IRRELEVANT” being added to playlists on major active rock/market indicator station KEGL 97.1 FM in Dallas in addition to 89.9 FM Pop Roxx Radio, Rock Rage Radio, Canada Rage Radio and Deep Dallas Radio. The band received the MXD Mag Rock and Metal 2016 Rising Talent in Texas Award and the duo was honored again in 2017 by MXD Mag by receiving individual awards for Best Rising Talent in Texas Bass Guitarist and Drummer, respectively. They have performed at prestigious venues Trees, House of Blues, Three Links and Curtain Club. They have performed in large festival settings at the Breast Cancer Can Stick It Foundation’s annual fundraising concerts at Klyde Warren Park in Dallas. The band recorded a single at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, "the birthplace of rock and roll" and have recently wrapped up studio time recording new original songs!

Sweet Chaos has been added to the Ernie Ball Artist Roster and Payton proudly endorses Pearl Drums and TRX Cymbals.
