BUTTERCUP is an übergroup from the land of beer and shoes featuring members of Dinofight!, The Pat Sajak Assassins, Shut In and Pillow Talk.
OPPOSITE DAY are Austin’s reigning kings of math-pop. Performing with the technicality and energy of a metal band, coupled with the finesse of a jazz combo, they are able to seamlessly weave catchy melodies and hooks along with deceptively complex rhythmic patterns, funky grooves, heavy riffs, and improvisation into finely-wrought musical arrangements. Although they can shred with stop-on-a-dime precision that few bands can achieve, they would rather engage you with clever, educational lyrics and memorable songs that just happen to be performed with virtuosic levels of musicianship.
As recording artists, they have constantly kept it fresh with songs about animals, personified glaciers, and Sci-Fi, always tracked as a muscular trio before the ample embellishments get slathered on.
THE PAT SAJAK ASSASSINS feature dueling synthesizers, bringing heavy inspiration from retro gaming. Their funnel of keyboards feels like listening to an Atari on acid, he said. All driven by rock bass and drums and the voice of Syhrea Conaway. Played in any order, the songs become an opera fit for R2-D2, and we cant wait to welcome our new robot overlords, she said.
