Day 13 of 365 live music shows in Austin:
Texan native Banjoist, painter, and graphic designer Adam Kobetich (Gatorhorse Studios) has been working closely with Dylan M. Blackthorn for years, designing otherworldly art and logos for THAT Damned Band & the 999 EYES FREAKSHOW & SURREAL SIDESHOW. Adam’s work brings to life the phantasmagoric array of imagery from Dylan’s songs with a 1980’s underground comic book feel, a touch of Geiger(RIP), and with a variety of color mediums.
One of Adam’s best works for THAT Damned Band is his watercolor illustration for THAT Damned Band’s CD release poster for Mutantstrosities. You can see Adam’s retrospective on the creative process for the piece here:
Adam Kobetich’s online Gallery can be seen here:
Howdy friends and fans – check it out!
“THAT Damned Band’s album Mutantstrosities is an epically wild and phantasmagoric acoustic musical exploration of the themes of Monsters, Freaks, the Dregs of Society, and the Circus Sideshow Midway.” – sideshowworld.com

THAT Damned Band is featured in Ripley’s Believe It or Not! new book for 2014, Reality Shock! Along with the Black Scorpion, creative director for the 999 EYES FREAKSHOW & SURREAL SIDESHOW:
THAT Damned Band’s brand of Steampunk Goblinfolk music is where the Black Sabbaths and Brian Froud meet. Like a black metal cabaret with a little less makeup, accordions instead of electric guitars, and songs from the dark side of the thicket. They are the Boogeyman in the closet, the monster in the well, the necromancer summoning spirits in the graveyard, the troll under the bridge – invoking Datura Whiskey with blood, greenskin and tattered black lace.
We at THAT Damned Band would like to extend our utmost thanks to the student union of UNC Charlotte for hosting us (as part of the 999 EYES SURREAL SIDESHOW) at their Student Takeover Carnival! A good time was had by all.
