Bayonne (born Roger Sellers) is an intriguing musician from Austin, Texas, who plays synths and drum while singing Americana-tinged ambient pop.
The man is certainly a unique performer, and tonight, he opens for Two Door Cinema Club in a sold-out show at the Black Cat!
Yes, the show is far sold out (some tickets released yesterday went fast!), but if you’ve already got your ticket, show up early for Bayonne.
Bayonne released his debut album, Primitives, on Mom+Pop on March 25, and he’s been touring to promote it. It features very catchy, melodic tunes like “Appeals,” which draw you in with its rhythm and intensity. It’s a song about a failure to launch, and the music and lyrics melt together perfectly.
Watch the official music video for “Appeals” by Bayonne on YouTube:
Interestingly, Bayonne is a big admirer of Phil Collins — and I can kind of see the influence actually.
Show up early and catch Bayonne if you’re going to the Black Cat tonight! The show is sold out.
