As you prep your SXSW dance card, you’ll definitely want to add the Austin based duo, Not In The Face. These guys have been described by those in the know as; Grimy, gritty and raw – Low-Fi and boisterous with a Texas redneck attitude – blistering blues-pop – Righteous! – their songs reveal a mean streak and melodic sense that would make Paul Westerberg proud…like a punk rock Springsteen from the Deep South.
” (the) powerhouse two-piece stormed the stage with big , meaty riffs and a bluesy swagger that might invite comparisons to , say, the Black Keys, but which was infused with such a joy being alive that it felt positively Springsteen-ian” – Culturemap Austin
“…Opening a weeknight bill inside Emo’s , unassuming in every way, the drummer and guitarist proceeded to build from a rootsy garage groove that turned into an all out assault and an epic, Zepplin-esque climax that made Not in the Face the must-see act of the week…” – The Austin Chronicle
Not in the Face ” has the strength of Bruce Springsteen with the swagger of Johnny Cash channeling the electricity of Iggy Pop” -Republic of Austin
“The Austin duo cranks out catchy, energetic and dynamic Southern-tinged rock that will have you pumping your fist in the air one minute and crying into your beer the next.” -KUT 90.5 Radio (Austin NPR Station)
“Their live show left me with my jaw hanging…It was hot, it was loud and it was fucking amazing.” - Windy City Rock
