YORKVILLE — Texas Hippie Coalition returns to Route 20, 14001 Washington Ave., for a show Saturday, May 19.
Texas Hippie Coalition, also known as THC, are the purveyors of their own patented red dirt metal sound: Take outlaw country, toss in a dash of southern-fried classic rock and mix it with some potent Texas power grooves.
The band from Denison, Texas, formed in 2004 and is committed to crafting a unique, original and thoroughly raucous brand of music that’s born of both life experience and a respect for rock ‘n roll’s forefathers.
THC’s 2014 release, “Ride On,” hit No. 8 on the iTunes Rock Album chart, No. 5 on the Billboard Hard Music Chart and No. 4 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Its 2012 “Peacemaker” spent more than 30 weeks on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and more than 17 weeks on the Hard Music Chart. “Dark Side of Black” aims to smash those records and bring on a whole new chapter of THC.
Band members are Big Dad Ritch on vocals, Cord Pool and Nevada Roma on guitars, and Timmy Braun on drums.
Kobra and the Lotus, Brand of Julez and Granny 4 Barrel open the show at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $15 in advance at Route 20, $18 at the door.
