Otis The Destroyer on "Alex Talks To People About Stuff"

I'm trying out a new thing.  It's pretty radical, for me at least - I'm talking to people.  Not my strong suit, being the nerdy, indoorsy type that I am.  Luckily I convinced some cool dudes to come indoors and talk to me.

They happen to be a band.  The band happens to be called Otis The Destroyer.  Otis The Destroyer happens to be a local act, having performed in several Homegrown Lives as themselves and their previous project, The Couch.

I've followed along with them somewhat for years now, from their days of trekking up to the big city from far-off San Marcos to throw down onstage like guys with twice their experience and half their talent.  The days of them being too young to drink at the bars where they perform are a (not very distant) memory, but their passion for the music is still fresh.  I'm not going to get too music critic-y, because I find that boring, and I'm not nearly qualified enough to do it anyway.  It doesn't have to be complicated:  these guys are kick-ass rock musicians.

 

"Where can I see these attractive, bearded gentlemen play that rock 'n roll music of theirs?" I hear you saying. Their next show is at Holy Mountain on August 29, and you can of course follow along with the Otis fellas on Twitter and Facebook.

Check out the first-ever episode of Alex Talks To People About Stuff below, where you can preview the track "Goldfame" from their new EP, Dark Arts, out now.  Apologies for any awkwardness on my part you have to sit through to get to it.
