Vortxz is an Indie/Alternative rock band based in Houston Texas. The group was founded by lead singer/song writer, Isaias “Rambo” Rodarte. On lead guitar is Noe Rodriguez who also produces all of Vortxz’ tracks. Luar Quintanilla is the bass player and Jonathan Lopez is on drums. The Vortxz sound varies from new-age indie to alternative rock. The band’s goal is to make music that helps people escape from the world we are currently living in and be submerged into hope, freedom, and expression.


Named after the 1965 semi-autobiographic novel by Albertine Sarrazin which is cited as one of Patti Smith’s favorite books, Houston-based trio Astragal formed in 2016 by way of serendipity in a Craigslist posting. Featuring Jimmy Bent on guitar and vocals, David Sosa on bass and Sam Enkelmann on drums, their instant fusion of friendship and creativity proved undeniable as they set forth to write music for the sake of writing music. The three-piece mixes elements of post-punk and indie-rock with plenty of pedal soaked sounds for an entirely immersive experience. Always consistent is their highly dynamic live show, exuding a vibrant magnetism that’s visible between the members as well as to their audience while onstage. Releasing their first two EPs in September 2016 and March 2019 respectively, Astragal has since played Austin’s psychedelic Levitation Festival and Houston’s In Bloom Festival as well as shared lineups with the likes of alexalone, Why Bonnie, B-Boys, Ringo Deathstarr and Deeper.


Blossom Aloe
Blossom Aloe is an indie rock quintet from Houston, TX. The band incorporates elements of bedroom-pop, psychedelia, and alternative rock into their sound, with no two songs sounding alike. Summer Days Heavy Rain is the band’s latest album featuring tracks Getaway and You’re Telling Me. Now, Blossom Aloe continues to write/record new music and play shows across Texas.
