Vas Defrans

Artist to Watch: Vas Defrans

Living in Los Angeles, where it seems new folk or indie-pop bands are born on a daily basis, can make it easy to forget about the few rock bands, which occasionally emerge through the cracks. Vas Dafrans is one of these rock bands. Except they are not abashedly emanating in some secret, dark corner - they are claiming their space and spreading their experimental-rock roots from their hometown of North Hollywood, across Los Angeles county lines. Their sound? It’s a surge of high-energy, infused with uninhibited riffs and melodic vocals that are sure to erase any doubts you had about rock still being alive. If you weren’t able to check out their show at the Troubadour this past Saturday, you can still pick-up a copy of their latest self-titled EP on itunes. - Tuesday Phillips

Meijin's SXSW day 4: Vas Defrans, Click Clack Boom, Kid Savant + more

The penultimate day of my fourth SXSW was definitely the longest in my history of SX’s. Arriving at 10:30am at the Elvis Presley-themed Beale Street Tavern to host a show, I was out on the town for 16 hours to follow. Opening the morning, Austin’s Indie-meets-retro rock quartet, Ghost Bunny, and solo, blues-rock multi-instrumentalist and loop-master, Walker Lukens, got the ball rolling. Most attendants woke up and arrived for a bevy of Brooklyn bands: Black Taxi, The Courtesy Tier, and The Click Clack Boom. The string of East Coasters was broken by LA- born Vas Defrans (pictured), who put the sound system to the test with pounding drums and intricate instrumental layering. A laid back local favorite, The Naturals, contrasted with the strobe- light and projection illuminated, electro/dance-rock quartet, Kid Savant who followed suit. NYC’s Hollis Brown closed the afternoon with straight up great blues rock and Southern rock sentiments. Yet another Tex-Mex decompression resuscitated me for an extensive evening of street performances. Renegade rocker, Tom Morello, brought the aggressive music of Black Top Demon, Outernational, Anti-Flag, and Wayne Kramer outside the Swan Dive as part of Occupy SXSW. Morello himself marched into the crowd of hundreds for a finale while police swarmed the area. All ended without any blood shed, but it was an night/early morning to remember! –Meijin Bruttomesso
