Formed in 2007 from the residual ooze Hurricane Katrina smeared across New Orleans, The Unnaturals are not your parents' surf band. This instrumental 3-piece band is probably more radio-active than they are radio-friendly! They take equal parts surf, punk, and metal, and suck it up into a whirlwind of swing and rockabilly. Founding members, guitarist Kevin Bowles and bassist Jenn Attaway, are joined by drummer Bill Heintz. The band has opened for Dick Dale, Agent Orange, The Chop Tops, The Koffin Kats, and Rik Slave and the Phantoms, just to name a few. They've played at all the major live music venues in New Orleans, and have been featured on seven local independent film soundtracks.
2:15 p.m. to 3 p.m.
