HPMA Showcase Spotlight: Featherface, "Buncha Guy Friends Forever Playing Together"
In the weeks leading up to the Houston Press Music Awards showcase on Sunday, August 4, Rocks Off will be profiling a handful of performers each day, mostly in their own words - part of the best top-to-bottum lineup the showcase has ever had, in our humble opinion. See the showcase schedule and ticket information at HPMusicAwards.com, and watch Twitter (@hprocksoff) every day until the showcase for your chance to win tickets.
What are you nominated for?
Best Local Music Video ["I Saw You Dancing"].
Describe your band in four to seven words.
Buncha guy friends forever playing together.
Who is your single biggest musical influence and why?
We really don't have an answer for that. I will, however, say that Yes is one of our all-time favorite bands.
What recordings (if any) do you have readily available?
We currently have two releases, an EP called It Comes Electric and our recent full-length Actual Magic. Both can be purchased at our Web site or at local stores like Cactus and Sig's Lagoon.
