Looking to experience a live musical explosion with genres ranging from funk, rock, reggae and post-punk? Look no further – located in the heart of Bryan, Texas, the Grand Stafford Theater is proud to present Free First Friday, featuring performances by Electric Attitude, MODOC, Taz & Company and videoing. With a line-up of this caliber you’re certain to find an act that strikes your musical fancy, and for a mere free dollars.
A seven piece band based out of Houston, Electric Attitude is an eclectic mix of dance floor party-starters that leave you with no choice but to get down and boogie. Having won the 2011, 2012, and 2013 Houston Press Music Awards for “Best Soul/Funk/R&B” act, as well as opened for major international acts like The Octopus Project, The Bright Light Social Hour, and Bonobo, Electric Attitude has kept their momentum rolling and garnered widespread attention. With the release of their new LP, Skintight & Solid Gold, to a sold-out room at the House of Blues, you can certainly expect an unforgettable show with Electric Attitude.
Joining the line-up is MODOC from Nashville, Tennessee, turning heads with their expansive raw sound and quickly hitting everyone’s radar for new favorite rock band. With their 2012 debut, Fortune & Fame, and their self-titled 2013 release, MODOC is surely bringing the grit of rock back to their audience. Following their 2013 SXSW tour, they have also joined the likes of Milwaukee’s Summerfest, St. Louis’ Loufest and the Nashville Dancin’ concert series. You’ll definitely want to keep an eye and ear out for these talented crooners.
Taz & Company
Beginning his college career at A&M, Taz is no newcomer to Bryan/College Station’s music scene. With his music ranging from reggae/folk/pop/acoustic genres and using a vast array of instruments, Taz will have you singing along to your beloved favorite classics in no time. Joining him this Friday will be fellow musicians Amy Westwick, David Johnson, and Brenton Kim.
Based out of Austin, Texas, I had the pleasure to witness videoing perform live earlier this week. With their sound encapsulating post-punk, shoegaze, and synth-electro influences alongside searing duo vocals, this three-piece act is definitely not one to be missed. Members Adreon and Jennifer are also involved in art and multimedia projects, and their creative expression undeniably shines through in their music videos and live performance.
