Chinati features local bands on Saturday
By JOHN DANIEL GARCIA
MARFA – This year’s music for Chinati open house weekend showcases local talent (and riff-raff) under the shade structure in downtown Marfa. The line-up is comprised of Adam Bork, Foundation for Jammable Resources, Hotel Brotherhood, LBS, Solid Waste, Jesse Tejada/Party With Death.
Bork, former member of Austin’s Earthpig and Fire, will play his brand of music weirdness. Utilizing a standard electric guitar in a way one would play a lap-string, Bork’s music is as mystifying as it is soothing.
Bork, of course, is a partner with his wife Krista in the wildly successful Food Shark that feed hungry folks under said shade structure.
Foundation for Jammable Resources returns to the stage for the show as well. The band, made up of drummer Anthony Desimone, bassist/guitarist John Rayburn, keyboardist/guitarist/mastermind Carlos Lujan, and singer (who doesn’t sing) Jon Coleman, will play their indie-jam and it’s damn sure to be entertaining.
West Texas stoner doom perv-core cretins LBS are on the bill to take streams of beer and tossed cans to the face. Tyler Spurgin, Ek Quintana, Mark Scott, Riley O’Bryan, and JD Garcia make up this band of madmen.
Jesse Tejada/Party With Death, a misanthropic synth-based one-man-band will hit the stage and your face with a chaos pad and a mild hatred for humanity.
Hotel Brotherhood will once again be under the zapping blue bug lights after their performance at El Cosmico. Slide guitarist Colt Miller, singer/guitarist Joe Cashiola, singer/guitarist/drummer Ross Cashiola, and bassist Tavahn Ghazi bring some sensitivity and poetry to an otherwise rowdy and crass line-up.
Punk/metal stalwarts Solid Waste are back to scream and thrash. Richard Covarrubias, singer/lyricist/dude who probably hates you (not really, he’s a sweet heart. Don’t tell him I told you.) has returned to town for the show. He joins his Solid waste conspirators, bassist Abraxas Dione Acosta, guitarist Jon Lujan, and drummer Ryan “Pinsky” Penland for thrashy fun.
