Mac Walker Presents
DOWN & OUTLAWS RESIDENCY
Down and Outlaws are a band of wanderers, four lost souls playing
music like they don't have a choice. They walk a line between classic
rock, blues and psych, creating a unique sound centered on their own
modern anxiety and heart.
The Sam Chase
The Sam Chase has a voice like a Nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick and sweat stained motel bedsheets because he likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much Whiskey. His is a show you'll probably want to tattoo on your body so everyone will know that you knew him before he was cool.
His backing band, The Functional Alcoholics are descended from Norse Warriors known as The Berserkers. Old Norse literature and historians note that Berserkers fought with an uncontrollable, trance-like fury. They would work themselves into a rage before battle, consuming drugged foods, and dressed in nothing but their enemies blood. The Functional Alcoholics follow their ancestors ancient practices before every show.
Independent folk rock hailing from San Francisco, drawing influences from bands such as: Radiohead, Flaming Lips, Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, Mos Def, Fugees, Wu Tang Clan, and Elliot Smith.
Dependie rock's interstellar folktronica megaphone.
