While Ninja Sex Party may be just months away from its 10-year Anniversary, the band had yet to perform in the city of Dallas. For their loyal fans, the years worth of anticipation was more than evident. From the moment The Bomb Factory doors opened, chants of “Danny Sexbang,” “Ninja Brian,” “NSP,” and more filled the air. The crowd’s energy would not falter as the night wore on.

Ah, Ninja Sex Party; a wonderfully ridiculous YouTube comedy band in the same vein as The Lonely Island. They might not have the same degree of exposure, obviously, but nearly 10 years into their run, they’ve built a fiercely loyal following due to their silly antics, inappropriate humor, and amusingly low-budget production. Sure, the latter might have simply been a limitation in their early days, but with more than 1 million total subscribers and 25 million views/year, the production quality is now more of a charming creative decision than necessity -though you could find more recent examples of their work to the contrary.
Based out of Lewisville, TX, Dark Avenue started life in 2014 as a side project to the Dallas/Fort Worth powerhouse Pistol Whippin Ike. It was there that three of the members began writing their own jams, something that would change the course of their careers. In the years since, Dark Avenue has established itself in the DFW area, performing with acts such as Pop Evil, Red Sun Rising, Bobaflex, and more.
Red Sun Rising is an American rock band from Akron, Ohio. Self-classified by the hashtag #WeAreThread, the band states that its musical influences are like threads in the fabric of its sound. As such, Red Sun Rising doesn’t fit into one particular genre.
Promising “a new music video every dang week,” Jonathan Young’s immense talent and down-to-Earth personality have endeared him millions within the YouTube community.
To say that a lead singer, more specifically a lead singer’s voice, is the most quickly recognizable indicator of a particular song or band would be an understatement. Sure, the more musically inclined and studied of us can likely pick out a band without their frontman or woman uttering a single word, but for the vast majority of the population, we’re left to await that first line or harmonization. If you haven’t heard the song before and you just happen upon it while browsing the dial -or listening to a Pandora or Spotify station- it’s all you can do.
