Garst returns to the reverb lounge this December Friday the 13th with a brand new EP and they are accompanied with a deathly duo of hard hitters Death cow (Lincoln, NE), and Omaha’s own Death God. This Friday the 13th is sure to be an unforgettable one!
Garst is Roman Constantino, Casey Plucinski, Joe Murphy-Chavez, and Cannon Dunwoody. Garst has been described as a band you “Need to feel for yourself.” Their shows bring crowds to their feet and ceilings to the floor with their energetic shoegaze-inspired brand of psychedelic punk rock.
Osiris McKizia also know for his artist name, DEATHGOD is a local musician born and raised out of Omaha, NE. He first got into the music making world after seeing his sister show an interest in it. Starting as a hobby in 2016, it slowly grew into something more serious and as of the year 2019, he has really started to make a name for himself in his city. In his own words “The reign is in the making”.
“The Adventures of Sacramento Jones” began in 2016 as a prospective book about a bovine ravaging towns, written by renowned Nebraska teenage author Connor Worden. But he decided soon after beginning the writing process that a novel was not the best way to tell the story of Sacramento Jones; instead, he formed a band. He named it Death Cow.
Now in his early 20s, Worden is as strange as they come. He’s the kind of guy who makes lots of hand gestures when he talks or will freestyle a rap verse at the dinner table just because he can. Sometimes his hair grows in ways only Einstein’s could have. He’s also a pretty damn impressive songwriter. Taking inspiration from ‘60s psych, ‘90s punk and 2000s garage, his weirdo-punk style is all his own. His raw, untrained wisdom provides firm foundations for members Reed Tiwald (guitar), Mari Crisler (bass) and Sam Crisler (drums) to cement the songs into organic expressions.
Nearly two years removed from writing the songs on their 2018 debut, Slow Drown, Death Cow is a much different band — one that has toured much of the country and packed basements around the Midwest. New material (to comprise a release in 2020) is in the works, too. Without too many spoilers, Worden’s songwriting (aided on a few tracks by the sibling rhythm section) is as heavy, anthemic and catchy as ever. These songs leave an impression.
You might want to stay out of their path — at this trajectory, Death Cow is a bull you won’t want to mess with.
