Natty Vibes, Vallejo, Migrant Kids & more
Natty Vibes is Hawaii’s most popular and acclaimed band from the windward side of Oahu. Join the fun Wednesday at House of Rock with the reggae/rock/pop band, Sol Tribe and the Blue 22s. Doors are at 8 p.m. Starting out as a group of friends who loved playing music and went from playing backyard parties to headlining some of Hawaii’s biggest shows and venues, they’ve recorded six full-length albums featuring a sound with strong roots in reggae, rock and pop combined with dance-party energy.
Rocking in the underground since 2005, Memories in Broken Glass truly are undiscovered masters of the djent/death metal genre. Check them out for yourself Thursday at House of Rock. You can hear their influences across the board as a mix of elements from bands such as Winds of Plague, Black Dahlia Murder, Veil of Maya and Carnifex while forming their own unique, hard-hitting sound. They’ll be joined by Dythella, Wrath Upon the Skies, The Devil Himself, Resurrect the Auspex and Ankura. Doors are at 6 p.m.
South Texas Music Walk of Fame honorees Vallejo are back at House of Rock and will be get the party started. They’ll be joined by the David Martinez Band. Doors are at 8:30 p.m. Formed by the three Vallejo brothers from El Campo, the group’s sound is a sonic melting pot of classic album rock mixed with contagious funky rhythms and Latin percussion. The veteran group has been rocking awhile — releasing its first album in 1994. Their latest in 2014’s “Brothers Brew.”
Austin Chronicle’s Best New Band honoree Migrant Kids aims for the musical sweet spot between rock and pop. Check out their simmering post-rock riffs and pounding back beats — a musical concoction they call psychedelic jungle rock — on Saturday at House of Rock. Cousins Miguel Ojeda and John Zakoor have been playing music together for 15 years and moved to Austin by way of Detroit, joining forces with Bryan O’Flynn, another Midwesterner from Cincinnati. The trio has been non-stop touring, writing and following their collective dream ever since their debut album was released in 2013. They’ll be joined by The Blind Owls and The Killer John Miller. Doors are at 9 p.m.
