Sasquatch Performer Spotlight: Black Pistol Fire
Black Pistol Fire At Sasquatch! Set time: Saturday, 2pm, Yeti Stage / Signing At Easy Street Booth: Saturday, 3:30pm
Black Pistol Fire is a Canadian rock-and-roll duo that splits time between Toronto, Ontario and Austin, Texas. Their wild and energetic sound has been described as a mix of classic southern rock and garage punk, garnering comparisons to early Kings of Leon, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The White Stripes, and Clutch. The Austin Chronicle writes this about theiir new album, Hush Or Howl: "While the rock-duo market remains saturated with bands of suspect skill levels surviving on charm and reverb, BPF demonstrates true talent. Drummer Eric Owen ain't no Meg White. He's Black Sabbath's Bill Ward, a fill-addicted power heathen getting heavy with half-time beats. The F-holes on McKeown's hollowbody emit whirlwinds of rubbery slide and hammer riffage, meantime, but it's his knack for delivering handsomely strained vocals in a finger-wagging cadence that proves the band's best asset. Every song sounds like a single."
Black Pistol Fire will be signing at the Easy Street booth Saturday at 3:30pm, following their 2pm set on the Yeti stage.
