The Heat that is Amplified
Wednesday, January 6
Amplified Heat and Maneaters of Tsavo
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 ’til it’s soaked in beer, kicked to the ground and dragged through the mud. Masters of the riff, Maneaters of Tsavo, accompany. $7-$30, 7pm, Sam's Burger Joint, 330 E. Grayson St., (210) 223-2830
