Presented by: House of TARG, Beau's All Natural
Doors: 9pm / Show at 10pm / 19+
It's an outlaw psychobilly cowpunk extravaganza! Three great bands are coming to chew bubblegum and melt faces, and they're all out of bubblegum. Psychobilly cowpunks Hot Snake Handlers tear it up at House of Targ on May 5th, with Toronto-based country rebels Doghouse Rose, and Ottawa outlaw country stalwarts Uncle Sean & The Shifty Drifters!
HOT SNAKE HANDLERS (Ottawa Psychobilly)
Hot Snake Handlers is a weapons-grade shitstorm of blistering psychobilly, rockabilly and mean-ass cowpunk, sharp and jagged as a prison shank in the eye, mean and loud enough to give your nightmares nightmares.
DOGHOUSE ROSE (Toronto Rebel Country)
In every style of music there comes along a band that goes against the grain. With the release of their second album Bourbon & Gasoline, Doghouse Rose has created a sound that’s been described as “Country-Rockabilly-Pop-Punk-Trash” or what they call Rebel Country. Drawing influences from delta blues, old school country, punk and psychobilly they can be considered country’s newest punk rockers.
THE JIMMY TRI-TONE BAND (Almonte Folk Rock)
This folk-rock duo is composed of James Walters and Randelle Ashley. Although they did not meet until later on in life, James and Randelle both grew up in the small town of Almonte, Ontario. James started playing guitar at a young age, jamming at family bonfires, while Randelle took piano lessons as a child and took up bass in the high school band.
Years later, now all grown up, the two finally met and that was it. James, sporting a full beard (and I mean full) was nicknamed "Jimmy Tri-Tone" by Randelle for the three colours it seemed to flaunt. The name stuck and they shortly after formed The Jimmy Tri-Tone Band. They now reside together in a small countryside house near White Lake, Ontario and spend most of their time making music, gardening, cutting wood and making maple syrup. James and Randelle just completed their second tour, to the East Coast this time and can't wait to get back on the road. In the meantime, you can find them around the Ottawa Valley playing shows and jamming at house parties!
