Local Licks, The Movement, Eric Hishaw

The locals show what they’ve got during Thursday’s Local Licks at House of Rock. And there’s quite a variety of music on tap for this show. Performers include Blood of Our Brothers (Corpus Christi heavy metal), A Means to an End (Corpus Christi metal core), October Roar (La Feria post hardcore/emo/pop punk) and Ankura (Corpus Christi post hardcore/experimental). Doors are at 9 p.m.
The Movement brings its fusion of rock, reggae, hip hop and acoustic music Friday to House of Rock. They’ll be joined by Audic Empire (Austin reggae/feel good rock ‘n’ roll). Doors are at 7 p.m. Born in Columbia, South Carolina, but later based out of Philadelphia and then San Diego, reggae-rock group the Movement was formed in 2004 by a trio of Sublime and Pixies fans. The lineup of Josh Swain (guitar and vocals), Gary Jackson (drums) and Jay Schmidt (bass) was settled by 2012, releasing “One More Night” in 2012, “Side by Side” in 2013 and “Golden” earlier this year.
Like many rock ‘n’ roll lifetimers, Eric Hisaw is more than just a full-time country-blues, roots-rocking solo artist – he’s a storyteller. Known for his impressive, heart-felt lyrics, Hisaw’s songs take you on a dynamic journey of loss, inspiration, movement and recovery. Check out Austin roots rocker Eric Hisaw on Saturday at House of Rock. He’ll be joined by David Martinez and Hope and Hostility. Doors are at 9:30 p.m. Playing guitar since he was 13 years old, Hisaw’s sound has been identified as an “Americana spin on a Rolling Stones spirit,” with influences such as Joe Ely, Doug Sahm and Bob Dylan heard clearly in his albums: “Ghost Stories” (2011), “Nature of the Blues” (2008) and “The Crosses” (2006).
