Christian Sparks and the Beatnik Bandits are a new breed of classic American musician. Armed with a rock and roll attitude and one hell of a story to tell, this four-piece band from Austin Texas is out to prove that Folk music isn’t dead. Now, see them perform live at House of Rock on Friday, March 1st!
The Beatnik Bandits are quickly solidifying their place in the world of storytellers. There’s a charm in the simplicity of the group’s music, but a distinct power in the lyricism that resonates long after the music stops.
The band’s self-titled debut EP kidnaps the listener from the opening chord and desperate realizations expressed in Beesting, to the jolly conclusion of Junebug Stomp. Sparks’ voice triumphs over the guitar heavy instrumentation of I’m Gonna Rise, but is delicate over the touching song, One Man Killing Machine. Old Ghost, the band’s first single, is a catchy song with a haunting twist. Christian Sparks and the Beatnik Bandits certainly are the black sheep of their genre.
House of Rock was established on July 28th, 2005 in the heart of downtown Corpus Christi. House of Rock is divided into three sections: The Venue, The Middle Bar and The Main Bar which now includes The Kitchen. The Venue hosts live music and entertainment, as well as private events including weddings, fundraisers, parties and more. The Main Bar is open 7 days a week and there is never a cover.
