Sideshow Tragedy with Dezorah
Hailing from Austin, The Sideshow Tragedy is an indie blues-roots-rock duo.
Front man Nathan Singleton grew up playing in blues clubs in East Texas as a teenager, where his dad was (and is) an acoustic blues fanatic and collector of vintage National resonator guitars. Nathan devoured old blues music, while at the same time, gravitated toward listening to rock, punk rock, funk, new wave, and legendary songwriters and musicians too numerous to mention.
Named after references in a Rimbaud poem called “Parade”, The Sideshow Tragedy has been captivating audiences with their “unadulterated energy” (KUT) and “distinctive, dark, and ultimately uplifting” (Austin Chronicle) tunes across Texas and much of the U.S. for over a decade, sharing the stage with the likes of Cheap Trick, Joan Jett, Black Joe Lewis, Bob Log III, King Khan and the Shrines, Conor Oberst, Joseph Arthur, Foghat and Afghan Whigs. They’ve earned raves for their past albums and comparisons to artists as fierce and powerful as Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Chris Whitley, Bob Dylan or The Waterboys, among others.
Opening for Sideshow Tragedy is Dezorah, a post-progressive band from The Rio Grande Valley. Blending danceable rhythms of bass guitar and drums, aggressive guitar riffs, and soaring vocals, each song written is given a distinct identity. Euphoric swells and percussive delays rise and fall with the dynamic movement the band creates- demanding physical and emotional involvement from their audience. As Dezorah is continually inspired by various forms of art, their music takes on an ever-changing flow, allowing them to continue to evolve onto newer grounds.
