Picture Book: Johnny Rocket, Death on Two Wheels, The Poison Control Center at Maxine’s Pub, November 5

By Sarah Spencer

On November 5, The Poison Control Center, Death on Two Wheels and Johnny Rocket came to Maxine’s Pub in Hot Springs, Ark. Local Arkansan and acoustic folk rocker Johnny Rocket opened for a band out of Atlanta, Death on Two Wheels, with their classic rock sound and raw vocals. Last up, acrobatic and energetic power-poppers, The Poison Control Center out of Iowa got the audience up out of their seats and then broke boundaries between audience and band by continually coming off stage for interaction during their performance. Not to mention, they also broke the drum set during the last song dog pile.

The TA Live SXSW Q & A with Trae Vedder of Death On Two Wheels

The TA Live SXSW Q & A with Trae Vedder of Death On Two Wheels

We’re always happy when bands we love start making the transition from local band to touring band to signed band. Atlanta’s Death On Two Wheels has made those transitions. Recently signed to Favorite Gentlemen (Manchester Orchestra, All Get Out, Kevin Devin), Death On Two Wheels has had a rather enjoyable ride. As the lads prep for an exciting week of music in Austin, we sent our SXSW Q & A to DO2W front man, Trae Vedder.

You’re soon to be on the road to SXSW! According to Google maps, the trip from ATL to Austin = approx. 16 hours driving. What are your three essential road trip albums?

The WhigsMission Control
Wilco – Sky Blue Sky
Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story Soundtrack

Fast food, gas station snacks, local diners – where are you most likely to stop for grub on this trip?

Pilot & Loves.
Preferably the ones with Subways and McDonalds. We never refill our sweet tea at different locations. Read more about The TA Live SXSW Q & A with Trae Vedder of Death On Two Wheels
