Omotai, Co-Pilot, DSGNS and Sleep Envy in concert
Welcome the new year as Omotai headlines a show featuring Sleep Envy, Co-Pilot and Austin's DSGNS. Omotai's Sam Waters will be pulling double duty as the guitarist in his new(er) band, Sleep Envy, alongside The Ronin King's Evan Jones, who moved back from Japan recently. To celebrate their reunion, they'll be playing several RK songs.
Dating from a time when "The Montrose" was a place to get beaten up while waiting to see a show at Numbers, The Ronin King built a controversial and daring bridge between the seemingly mutually exclusive worlds of high concept, temporal performance art and sludge metal during the course of its five year-run. The fine folks in Co-Pilot will bring their instrumental space jams to Fitz Downstairs in support. Out-of-towners DSGNS will display the kind of gritty, close-to-the-edge post-hardcore vibe that has made them the talk of the rock cognoscenti in Austin as well.
