Hot Burrito music weekend set for September
By JOHN DANIEL GARCIA
MARFA – For those who were left unsatisfied with Viva Big Bend due to a preference for guitars with a bit of distortion and heavy reverb, there will soon be two days of alternative, psychedelic rock, and punk music in town to appease such tastes. September 7 and 8 will see almost 30 bands (mostly from Austin) descend upon our town with their electric guitars and high-watt speakers to shake up and electrify the air at Padre’s Marfa and across the highway at Planet Marfa.
The Hot Burrito Weekend, as the festival will be known, was organized in partnership with Austin’s Spider House Café and 29th Street Hot Burrito with help from Paul Minor and Julie Bernal of Padre’s Marfa.
Among the acts playing the festival is eetsFeats, who have already established a fan base in town due to the intense and passionate performances they have given us over the past couple of years.
The band, a rock and roll three piece with a lead singer who also plays drums, last performed in Marfa on June 11 at the Marfa Book Co. with local punk rockers Solid Waste.
Psych-pop music will be well represented at the Hot Burrito Weekend. Holy Wave, a quintet transplanted in Austin from El Paso, is included in the line-up, as is The Wolf.
Expect a vibe reminiscent of the 1960s psychedelic scene, complete with trippy visuals and music that draws obvious influence from bands like Jefferson Airplane and the 13th Floor Elevators.
Bobby Jealousy, American Sharks, the Bad Lovers, Hidden Ritual, Communion, Foreign Mothers, Gal Pals, Sweat Lodge, The Gory Details, Low Times, Party Lines, Rust, Bat’s Blood, Hailey Tuck, Melissa Bryan, Will Cope, the Quin Galavis Band, Smokin White, Rocky and The Kiss Goodnight, Sans Soliel, El Paso’s Los Satanicos, Power Fortress, Burger City Ben, Sara O, Krunchy Krystals, and The Souldie DJ’S round out the robust lineup with more to be announced.
Ticket availability and prices will be announced soon.
