An impressive number of rock groups from the Greater Houston area will perform at the 4th Annual “GTS presents the Rocktober Fest»On October 10, 2021 at White Oak Music Room, just north of downtown Houston. The one-day festival will feature several different genres including psychedelic rock, garage rock, indie and even punk.
A name that immediately jumps off the page is Ground crew 4. The alternative rock quartet features prominent basslines with reverberating and saturated electric guitars. These leading instrumentals coupled with energetic vocals will remind listeners of 1990’s alt-rock and grunge music. The Houston natives breathe new life into the alt-rock genre with their single titled “Kaboom!”
For a more psychedelic and experimental sound, listeners may want to turn to Adult superstition. The psych-rock quartet debuted with their debut EP titled Obligatory September 21, 2020. Obligatory presents many different instruments and musical concepts, drawing inspiration from and comparing themselves to many classical acts. The creativity of the group does not manage to confine them to a single genre, versatility being their main calling card. Obligatory can be broadcast on Spotify, Apple Music, Band Camp, and Youtube.
“Rocktober Fest” will also feature prominent Houston garage rockers Eyes wide closed, who have grown rapidly since their debut in early 2021.
