Two Tons of Steel, Schism Tool Tribute and more this weekend
Americana/folk roots rockers Hope and Hostility return to the House of Rock stage Thursday. Doors are at 9 p.m. Join Gary Robert Golden Jr (lead vocals, acoustic and electric guitars) and Bethany Golden (vocals, mandolin and acoustic guitar) on their journey, writing and recording music directly influenced by their faith and the experience life has given them. They enjoy a wide range of music that influences the way they approach songwriting. The duo released “Heart Aches” in 2014.
Two Tons of Steel has been pushing the envelope of Texas sound for 20 years. The San Antonio rockers return to House of Rock on Friday. They’ll be joined by Austin country/soul rockers Palomino Shakedown and Corpus Christi’s Buddy T. Y Los Chingnons. Doors are at 8 p.m. Two Tons of Steel’s signature high-energy Americana/punk/country/rockabilly has taken the group to Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry to Europe and most importantly to Gruene Hall on Tuesdays for 20 years. The group released “Unraveled” in 2013.
Tributes abound as Rock 92.7 presents Schism: A Tool Tribute on Saturday at House of Rock. Joining them are Corpus Christi’s Poetry and Prose, a Primus tribute band, and Rated R, covering Queens of the Stone Age. Doors are at 8 p.m. Schism formed in NYC after seeing a Tool show and decided to share their love and passion for the music by forming the tribute band. “We started this back in 2001, after seeing a Tool show at Madison Square Garden. We simply loved the music and wanted to share it live with other Tool minded fans,” Schism guitarist Keith Williams said. “We’ve been a national touring act for over 15 years now. This isn’t something you tap your foot to, this is more of an interactive experience for listener. These songs are compositional masterpieces, which will be studied for years.”
