Oakland country outfit, The Ugly, harkens back to the days when country music was just beginning to dabble in rock and roll. These city slickers will put a boot in your ear and a shot of whiskey in your step with their songs about booze and women.
GARY FLOYD’S BUDDHA BROTHERS
San Francisco and Texas music icon Gary Floyd (The Dicks) likes to paint with many colors and with The Buddha Brothers, he has assembled a group with the musical palette to rock the best of his past and finesse all the other diverse musics he loves. From wistful folk and front porch country blues — with harmonies and melodies a-plenty — to raw rocking stomps and borderline psychedelic jams, The Buddha Brothers are a group of friends first who play music with a common vision.
Formed in a secret shack on the beach, Bar Fight has built a reputation for putting on an inspired live show. Through danger and heartache, they assault the stage and deliver a reckless yet reverent brand of coastal country that is sure to groove.
