EL LAGO

Galveston, Texas might be known as a coastal destination for Texas vacationers, but for the pedal soaked music of EL LAGO, Galveston is home. Mixing sounds that remind you of what would happen if Cocteau Twins and Ringo Deathstarr covered the music of Spiritualized, the band has been known to cause a stir with their dreamlike performances.

The four piece has always crafted plenty of soundscapes to complement the vocals of lead singer and guitarist Lauren Eddy, and their recent recordings with Austin Sepulvado (Buxton, Dollie Barnes, Ancient Cat Society) and Grammy winning engineer Steve Christensen (Robert Ellis, Khruangbin, Destiny’s Child, Steve Earle) seem to capture the magic that the band crafts together.

​TWO STAR SYMPHONY

Two Star Symphony is a Houston based instrumental music ensemble composing and performing all original music. Two Star’s dark distinctive sound is a result of a unique writing style that differs from most classical ensembles, in that member collaborates to create compositions where sheet music is never written.
This unique style has been key in Two Star’s collaborations with other artists and mediums. Two Star has created original works with or under commission for: American Ballet Theatre Studio Company, Dominic Walsh Dance Theatre, Bobbindoctrin Puppet Theatre, Rice University, The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Houston Public Media and Discovery Green. In addition to producing six albums of original material, Two Star has also created five original silent film scores and multiple soundtracks for independent film.
Two Star Symphony most often performs in quartet or octet formations.

MYDOLLS

Formed in 1978 and fronted by women, Mydolls is an American post-punk band from Houston whose relevant, timeless songs have inspired us to rise above and resist hate. Mydolls’ music was introduced to international audiences when they were interviewed by John Peel on BBC Radio and appeared in Wim Wenders’ classic, award-winning film PARIS, TEXAS (1984). As one of Houston’s earliest punk bands, Mydolls has created a D.I.Y. sound that is as ethereal, fluid and poetic as it is politically charged and feminist. For over 40 years, Mydolls has performed in the true spirit of the punk rock ethos: do it yourself and be yourself.
