Band of the week: Amplified Heat

Meet the Ortiz brothers, Jim, Chris and Gian. They moved to Austin in the late 90's and jumped right into the blues scene. Their brand of the blues was too loud for most night club owners so they struggled to get gigs. Rock and Punk started to overshadow the blues scene, so they started Amplified Heat. They're loud enough to give chickenhawks a Heart Attack; I like that. Now, they may be a little Bipolar, but that's just because their Wagon Wheel fell off in Houston.

See Amplified Heat live Nov 17th at Rudyard's in Houston and Nov 18 at BEERLAND in Austin.

Hey, man. It's Veterans Day and I'm thinking of you. (And all the others.)
