NOT IN THE FACE – Austin Based Rock Duo To Perform At SXSW Festival

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.


Live Reviews:

” (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
