JOE BUCK YOURSELF (HANK III) / VIVA LE VOX / the DESOLATORS @ the Void
JOE BUCK YOURSELF: The once anti-Nashville based Joe Buck gained notoriety as the guitarist of Th' Legendary Shack Shakers. As Hank III's villainous sideman onstage, the snarling upright bass player became infamously recognizable. Joe Buck Yourself is now a bona fide evil motherfucking, one man band. This unique blend of hellbilly punk rock ain't your grandma's hillbilly music. Joe Buck yourself, motherfuckers!
VIVA LE VOX is a band based around the music of singer/guitarist Tony Bones that started in Delray Beach, FL in 2009. The influences are diverse, though the most predominant are early 20th century jazz and 1970s punk rock. The music is often described by others as a mix between Gogol Bordello and Tom Waits, and by the band as a mix between Django Reinhardt and Joe Strummer- either way a gypsy jazz punk rock-n-roll stew no matter which part of the last century you're familiar with.
the DESOLATORS: From the backwoods of Virginia, to the dust of San Angelo, and all the way to the sands of San Diego comes the soundtrack to every open stretch of highway in between. Four firey-eyed, ornery lads brought together by pure fate and whiskey-soaked rock and roll- Jackalope Drew (percussion), Johnny Two-Holes (bass), Blackwood (TX guitar) and Hawkins (CA guitar)- have come together to pay homage to the outlaw greats and leave nothing behind but a cloud of smoke and dust on a stretch of asphalt near you. With their own brand of cookin' rhythms and lonesome leads that is sure to make all you sinners thirsty, one could only hope to get left behind should these boys blow through your town.
