Boomtown FIlm & Music Festival: Aftermath
by Beth Rankin
The Fest that Shook Beaumont Awake ~exerpt~
It might sound a bit over-the-top, but Friday night’s music was downright … transcendent. Houston act Bang Bangz created a fun, deep, throbbing wall of sound that was the perfect precursor to the total insanity that was The Manichean.
This Houston ‘narrative rock’ band tore the bar UP – as the lead singer catapulted off of speakers, tables and unsuspecting human beings, The Manichean created a sound that controlled my every emotion. I felt their sounds deep, deep, deep in my bones. And I can’t wait for their return to Beaumont in a few weeks.
