Wo Fat and The Devil & The Almighty Blues
Entry Requirements: 14+. Under 16s MUST be accompanied by an adult
Wo Fat Everything is bigger in Texas they say and Wo Fat have been proving that for the last 15 years. Forged in Dallas in 2003, Wo Fat have been leading the charge of the underground's Texan takeover with their thick and fuzzy riffs ever since. Instantly introducing themselves with 2006's chest-penetrating belter, The Gathering Dark, showcasing to the world almost two hours worth of their blues-stuffed heavy-psych riffology. As we say, everything's bigger in Texas.
Now, six full lengths, three splits (with Abrahma, Egypt and The Re-Stoned respectively) and a live-album to their name - and more to come - Wo Fat are easily kings of 'The Big D'. Their most recent release, 2016's Midnight Cometh, presents a band who are true to their riffing roots, but also one who has progressively layered in the psych over the years to create a beast with more swagger than most can handle. After headlining The Underworld on the closing night of Desertfest 2016, we couldn't be more proud to have them back to grace the stage once more.
The Devil And The Almighty Blues They'll be joined by The Devil & The Almighty Blues, whose name couldn't be more apt. Bringing a devilishly groovy stomp and infusing it with their almost nonchalant, relaxed tones. Releasing their latest full-length, II, last year, TD&TAB have fast become one of the most exciting bands in all of heavy psych and are one you won't want to miss when they support Wo Fat at The Underworld on 11th October.
