Grape St

When Garage-Rockers Harlem went on hiatus, Curtis James O'Mara's creative appitite did not relent. What else is an artist to do? He started Grape St., gathering a slew of friends from the Austin music scene to round out his Windows 95 style band. You're not going to hear Curtis doing renditions of Harlem; instead he's forged ahead with a sound that combines elements of Garage-Rock with infectious bar-room stompers. Guitars are twanging, drums are pounding, and gang vocals are abundant.

John Wesley Coleman

Self-proclaimed "trash poet" John Wesley Coleman III incorporates indie rock slack with witty storytelling in his music. Hailing from Irving, Texas and living much like a drifter in East Austin, Coleman started engaging himself in a variety of creative activities in the mid-2000s: performing with psychedelic five-piece Golden Boys, doing standup comedy, painting, writing books and movie scripts, and recording solo material. Monofonus Press released Coleman's combination poetry book/CD, American Trashcan, in 2008, and followed it up with a 7" titled Ghettoblaster, which included a cover of George Michael's "Faith." His next full-length, Steal My Mind, was issued in 2009, before Permanent Records released Bad Lady Goes to Jail in 2010. Coleman returned in 2012 with The Last Donkey Show, recorded in Oakland, California at Greg Ashley's Creamery studio, and at a friend's childhood home in Lockhardt, Texas, offering more of his uniquely colorful tales and a hint of maturity.
