Scarecrow People, Aracade Hustlers, Rock Bottom String Band
The Scarecrow People acoustic duo are playing the next eight Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. and Somethin’ Silky is holding down the next four Wednesdays beginning at 9 p.m. at House of Rock. Beginning as a reggae band in 1991, Scarecrow People became a rock band specializing in a potent blend of “B” sides, soundtracks, 1980s, retro and more. Two-thirds of the popular Corpus Christi trio (Tim Russell and Manuel Ponce) will be present for the duo performances. Something’ Silky, a trio featuring Adrian Tello (guitar), Austin Fogle (bass) and Eric Enriquez (drums), has original rock and covers to keep you grooving. It’s also beer Wednesday with $2.50 craft beers and half-price appetizers from 4 p.m. until close.
Local funk/soul/jazz group Arcade Hustlers take the stage Thursday at House of Rock. The band also mixes psychedelic rock with blues and funk to get its original music. They’ll be joined by Killer Tofu and Crimson Head. Doors are at 9 p.m.
Three bands playing a different sort of folk are featured Friday at House of Rock.
Rock Bottom String Band (San Marcos) crams bluegrass, punk, country and folk into one kick-ass explosion of banjo, mandolin and fiddle. Corpus Christi’s Black TarPoon is a South Texas band that plays hillbilly blues inspired by horror folk fused with murder country while keeping a punk rock mentality. Sequin duo Conway the Whale is Justin Coway on guitars and vocals with Tara Miller on cajon and together they make heart-felt, sometimes raucous folk punk with bits of jazz and blues. Doors are at 9 p.m.
