Arrows To Fire
Arrows To Fire
Austin-based rockers Arrows to Fire return to 3TEN ACL Live on July 21, 2018, playing cuts from the band’s new album, Here We Go, including “This is Here,” the video for which has already earned nearly 370,000 views on YouTube. Its moving imagery illustrates the song’s call to action for planetary preservation, backed up by donations of 50 percent to environmental organizations for every Amazon or iTunes purchase.

Singer John Joyo and lead guitarist Chris Lavigne formed Arrows to Fire in 2016, drawn together by their mutual love of alternative rock and desire to use music as a forum to address subjects both personal and political. Austin native Joyo and French-American citizen Lavigne share songwriting for the band, which also features Steve Bernal on bass and Brian Mendes on drums. Inspired by rock icons such as the Foo Fighters, Live and Queens of the Stone Age, Arrows to Fire recorded Here We Go at Austin’s famed Arlyn Studios, and released it in March of 2018 during South By Southwest.

Joyo says the band’s name connotes the idea of arrows in a quiver, ready to find their target — just like songs. With Here We Go, Arrows to Fire is aiming straight for listeners’ ears — to capture their minds and hearts.
The Bluebonnets
The Bluebonnets
The Bluebonnets play glam/garage/blues/rock complimented with layered girl-group harmonies. Tight and tough, their songs are energetic and genre-defying arrangements held together by guitar interplay and hooks you remember long after the show.The band formed in 2007, as a restructuring of a former line-up that began in LA several years before.

The band formed in 2007, as a restructuring of a former line-up that began in LA several years before. When Valentine returned to her hometown of Austin, Texas, it was the right time and place to revive a band that she and lead singer/bassist Dominique Davalos had started once before in LA. Dominique made Austin her home and the pair recruited Eve Monsees, a sensational guitarist and singer whom the acclaimed Gary Clark Jr. credits with inspiring him to become a guitar slinger himself. Eve added a new dimension and the Bluebonnets began to play shows and compile tunes for recording. The group is completed and driven by Los Angeles drummer Kristy McInnis’ solid groove beats.The Bluebonnets put a feminine slant on blues based

The Bluebonnets put a feminine slant on blues based rock n’ roll, yet don’t fall neatly into any musical category: traces of pop, roots, country, and punk are all interwoven into the music. Building a base with regular gigs in Austin, the band makes mini-tour trips to the East and West coasts and has recruited a steady following in harder to reach places with online live-streamed shows via StageIt.

The band’s second self-released and co-produced CD “Play Loud” has been out only a few months and has received local airplay and reviews. The CD features 11 songs, most of them recorded “old school,” –that is, live—capturing the energy that the band generates at their gigs.When Waterboys leader and singer Mike Scott saw the Bluebonnets one SXSW, he wrote this about them, leading to an invitation to open for his band in select cities on their major 2015 American tour. #Update: the tour was a smash! The ‘Bonnets made new fans in seven new cities they’d never gotten to play.
