Amplified Heat inaugurates the Current's GRSFD concert series
On Friday, October 16, the San Antonio Current kicks off GRSFD, our newest, off-the-cuff concert series. Hosted in the garage on the side of our big blue headquarters, GRSFD is a low-key, high octane celebration of the music we love.
We begin on a shit-kicking foot with Austin trio Amplified Heat. Composed of brothers Jim, Gian and Chris Ortiz, the Austin trio takes cues from '70s Detroit in fashion, facial hair and unrelenting blues rock. On their effort On The Hunt, once the brothers pick up on a rhythm, they don't stop 'till it's soaked in beer, kicked to the ground and dragged through the mud.
Like-minded San Anto trio Maneaters of Tsavo opens the gig with a remarkable melding of doom, punk and blues rock. New Braunfels trio Foxmoor Express also gets in on the action with the garage pop from their 2015 EP Song of the Week.
