Latin-Reggae-Rock Fusion Act Showcasing At Major Music Festival In Austin And Many Cities In Between
Scottsdale, AZ 2/15/12– Fayuca, a progressive Latin Reggae-Rock-Punk band who proudly represent Arizona on the national scene, are known for not only their incredibly high-energy, charismatic live show; but also their relentless coast to coast touring. Blending their mother tongue with the ethos of reggae and the passion of punk- the result is sultry, heady, stoner rock with a Spanish twist.
This March the genre-blurring trio are heading to the famed South By Southwest (SXSW) festival in downtown Austin. Not only will they be performing at the Wildfire Reggae and Arts Festival and the Texas Rockfest, but they’ll also be playing the official High Times Magazine party on 6th St. where they’re nominated for a (10th Annual) HIGH TIMES 2012 Doobie Award for Best New/Underground Artist.
Fayuca will kick off their multi-city tour in Scottsdale, AZ on Thursday March 8th, headlining the Roxy Lounge (7443 E. 6th Street, Scottsdale, AZ). Doors open at 7pm, tickets are $10 and guests 21+ are welcome with a valid ID. Joining them on the bill are support acts Neato and Common Measures.
The locally-based band, who recently opened up the night at Authority Zero’s CD release party, has become a regular on the festival circuit, sharing the stage with many notable acts including Damian Marley, Nas, 311, The Dirty Heads, and Fishbone.
The band recently signed a deal with Phoenix-based Fervor Records, who launched two pop acts on MTV last year (Super Stereo, Tarik NuClothes) and work regularly with the film and television industries to provide independent music. The partnership will see a release of Fayuca’s fourth album, which is currently in the works, and was named by ThePier.org as one of the most anticipated releases of 2012, alongside artists like No Doubt and Michael Franti.
