AUSTIN TX – Dylan M. Blackthorn is the innovative songwriter, composer, and song collector behind THAT Damned Band. Known for his eccentric poetry and distinctive self-taught squeezebox technique, Dylan M. Blackthorn sounds like the bastard child of Tom Waits & Danny Elfman. He brings his compositions and song collection to Dozen Street January 6th, opening for the Electric Mountain Rotten Apple Gang & Adam Kobetich.
The Electric Mountain Rotten Apple Gang ‘s sound draws influence from Bluegrass and Balkan music, early Blues and a dash of 80’s Thrash, all formed up into a string band format. Instrumentation is usually Banjo, Upright Bass, accordion, fiddle, but can fluctuate to include sometimes guitar, sometimes viola, sometimes harmonica. The E.M.RAG. prefers to play acoustic around one mic in the old time way, playing a mix of original music as well as eccentric interpretations of traditional pieces.
Please bring donations for the bands!
