This Is Where Two Oceans Meet: "The one man band that uses both percussive drums and looped guitars to create a sea of melody. With additions of spoken word semi-sung poems that overlay gentle tracks that sway you back in forth as if you were listening to the crashing of ocean waves on a dark summer night." - Southwest Post Rock Collective
Formative Fire: Formative Fire is a Jazz/Funk trio based out San Antonio, Texas. The trio features Richard Thurman on Guitar and Vocals, Christopher Carpenter on Bass, and John Alexander on Drums. Their style takes on the tradition of Jazz/Funk big hitters like Martin Medeski & Wood and John Scofield, but adding a few Rock infuences like Rage Against the Machine and Red Hot Chili Peppers. The most interesting part of this trio is Thurman's surprisingly soulful voice that wraps up the sound into a beautiful story of love and life.
River Barons: San Antonio's Alt-country/Southern Rock sensation! Great guitar riff driven rock and roll with some country twang influences. This is old school song-writing that tells stories. There is no better headliner for this stage on the rio than River Barons.
