The Dead Lotus Society is a metal band based in Denver but originally hailing from Austin, fronted by the enigmatic Hyatt. She is a walking contradiction, sporting adorable dresses and bright pink hair, but singing with a deafening roar. Hyatt will be my special guest tonight at 8pm, and we'll be talking about The Dead Lotus Society's upcoming album and SXSW performance. The Dead Lotus Society will be performing at the Heart of Texas Rockfest at 7th and Neches on Saturday night, 11pm. The show is free, and no wristbands or badges are required.Comments
