Three Times Bad / Press
“This is boot-stompin', beer-swillin', muddy roots music, where outlaw bluegrass meets anti-folk meets hillbilly punk in a band of city-dwellers who want nothing more than to be pickin' and howlin' from a rickety front porch Appalachia.”
"This band is really on the move!"
“Pass the moonshine! With knee-slapping bluegrass songs about chasing the reverend's wife, cornbread crumbs and possum stew, Three Times Bad aims to ignite an Appalachian hoedown tonight.”
“Jesus says: 'A great live show is all about ecstatic hoedown.' ”
"Urban hillbilly music at its finest: ear-opening, toe-tapping tales of love-making on cornbread crumbs, illicit obsession with the reverend's wife and possum stew, and gospel hoedowns the likes of which you haven't seen since Jonathan Edwards and the Great Awakening."
“A hot new San Francisco string trio born from the soundtrack to the critically acclaimed transmedia novel 'badbadbad.'"”
“Epic moustaches and bent bluegrass.”
"Garcia aims to unsettle your assumptions about class, about gender, about sex, about religion, about identity: in short, about yourself, and what it means to be human in an inhuman world."
"Evokes the storytelling of bluegrass and the complex relationships of dirty American roots."
"Story songs are a big part of [Three Times Bad's] live show, but the adventurousness of these musicians, and their joy in each other’s company means there is a lot of spontaneity in concert."
"You guys got some soul!"
"Since we’re also mining the bluegrass and folk traditions, we’re going way back to learn old-time spirituals and mountain songs. It’s an ass-kicking music-history lesson to say the least."
"Fascinating for its grasp of the intersection between literature and our modern modes of communication."
“Jesus Angel Garcia is like Old Bizarro Religious Folk. Completely classic.”
"I've seen Jimi Hendrix live and you guys KICKED ASS!"
“Hearing your music and watching you guys having so much fun on stage made me want to LIVE!”
“I totally thought you guys were gonna be a shitty garage band. But you're awesome!”
"Country-punk style and catchy as hell. 'Bed o’ Cornbread Crumbs' will be embedded in my head for days."
