TEN HIGH BRINGS THE FAYETTEVILLE SOUND TO GONERFEST 14!
Ten High a big, burly gnarly rock n roll band that seemingly dropped out of some Amphetamine Reptile sampler from the 90s rather than 2010s Arkansas. Despite their name they are definitely not a cowboy band, although at times you can tell they've heard a Gun Club album and they probably could kick your ass. It's a solid sound, a take-no-prisoners attack that I'm sure will open the eyes of folks who never thought of Arkansas music at all beyond maybe the great Bobby Lee Trammell. Find out some more about the great TEN HIGH!
What goes on in Fayetteville?
Fayetteville is basically a not-as-cool version of Oxford. A big college down full people wanting to party.
What's a good place to eat in town?
The best place to eat in town is where our bass player works, Hugos. its a 40's style basement with the best burgers on earth
How did Ten High come together?
Ten High started when Devan and Cat met working at a music store. she just moved to Fayetteville from Memphis and I just moved from Tulsa back to Fayetteville. Neither of us could get anyone to jam so we just started jamming and never stopped.
Are there places to play locally?
The best two spots to play in town are Smoke & Barrel and Backspace. Backspace is a DIY spot and theres always something cool going on. Smoke & Barrel is the sweetest bar in Town. Kind of our own DKDC
Name some bands you like, any place, any time...
Matts all about Sonic Youth, Cat swears J.C. Satan is the greatest band ever, Aaron is all over the place, but keeps it real psychy, and Devan just discovered Amyl and The Sniffers and is still freaking out.
What are you looking forward to at Gonerfest?
We're looking forward to partying with all our buds in Memphis. We have a couple shows with A Giant Dog leading up to Gonerfest so we're real excited to see them get down. And definitily Tyvek, they've been so great for so long. Just looking forward to days and days of great musicians and super party time
Anything else you wanna say?
We just want to say we can't wait to share festivities with some of our favorite bands and people on earth. Definitily ready to eat thousands of krystals and all the slaw we can find.
