Black Pistol Fire – Electrifying Rock & Blues Duo from Austin, Coming To Doug Fir

Black Pistol FireBlack Pistol Fire is a high-octane rock duo based out of Austin, Texas by way of Toronto, Canada composed of Kevin McKeown on guitar/lead vocals and Eric Owen on drums. Drawing inspiration from blues, R&B, and rock greats such as Led Zeppelin, Chuck Berry, Nirvana, Buddy Holly, and Muddy Waters, Black Pistol Fires’s gritty and dynamic performances are fueled by undeniable musicianship. Dubbed the “next big thing” by Huffington Post after SXSW 2013, they have developed a reputation for their untamed live performances. Described as “Pure fire on stage,” they are quickly becoming festival veterans, including performances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, and Sasquatch Music Festival. One recent festival appearance was described as “Drummer Eric Owen, shirtless and wrists wrapped, pounded the skins like he was summoning a devil. McKeown stomps so hard during his rough and intricate dirty blues, you thought he would make a hole in the stage… A must see.”
