Sheer Heart Attack

Full-blown Chaos in Tejas

June 1, 2012, Music

What separates this weekend's Chaotic hot-spotting over so many other local music festivals? In a word: Timmy. Hefner. Spectral genre divides aside – metal to New Orleans bounce, crust punk to hip-hop – Chaos in Tejas bursts with a triple-digit band grid, in and out of more than 10 venues, by the sheer will of Hefner, who single-handedly books the raging street riot. Hefner gets acts no one else can cajole. Saints and Satan preserve him: – Raoul Hernandez
