The duo's members are Rodrigo Sanchez, lead guitar, and Gabriela Quintero, rhythm guitar. The duo met in Mexico City while playing in a thrash metal band called "Tierra ??cida". Growing frustrated with the limited scope of the domestic music scene, they moved to Europe, where they met considerable acclaim. They took up residence in Dublin, Ireland, after hearing it was particularly welcoming to travelling musicians. Playing live gigs in various pubs and busking on Grafton Street and Temple Bar allowed them to practice their sound. They received their break when Damien Rice approached them to provide the support for the Irish music festival Oxegen. In 2005 they toured extensively in festivals around the United Kingdom and beyond. The duo has released six albums - Foc, re-Foc, Live in Manchester and Dublin, the self-titled album Rodrigo y Gabriela, Live in Japan and 11:11.

If it feels like Nashville???s The By Gods are trying to drill through your skull to plant their hook- laden songs in your your grey matter, that???s precisely the point. Squalls of feedback interrupting repetitive chords signaling the return to a chorus, it???s what we???ve come to recognize as the formula; a recipe for loud/quiet/loud. On their latest outing, Phone Calls, The By Gods have bucked such formulae by purposely pushing the repetition. The By Gods, composed of Tye Hammonds and husband and wife duo, Natalie and George Pauley, sound at times to meld into a single organism. This is certainly the result of their skills being honed by a steady touring regimen. Tightening the screws an extra turn on an already tight unit seems to have allowed the band to loosen up; favoring mid-tempo chugging to a frantic burnout. Deezy and Alex are Sad Baxter. They live in Nashville. They met when Deezy left a note on Alex's door because she had no friends. They dated, and now they don't. Deezy still has no friends. Inspired by grungy, heavy, melodic, mostly loud rock music (Nirvana, Veruca Salt, Hole, etc) Deezy stole her mom's guitar as a teenager in NJ and began her ~*journey*~ of writing angst-filled songs of discontent. Alex played drums in hardcore bands in PA growing up, and the two joined forces when they realized they were both huge idiots. They want to party with you, but in a sad, loud, La Croix/KitKatBar kinda way.

Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager, is charged with an unthinkable crime in early 20th-century Georgia. As the press whips the public into a frenzy, Leo's only hope lies in a brave crusade for justice led by the Southern wife he never understood, among a people that never understood him. With a rousing score by Jason Robert Brown ("The Last Five Years") and a powerful script by Alfred Uhry ("Driving Miss Daisy"), this transformational story is part murder mystery and part exploration of the endurance of love and hope against all odds.
