Austin-based electronic musician Bayonne stopped by the Black Cat Tuesday to open for Two Door Cinema Club. With vocals, synths, and drums, he proved really quite absorbing and well worth seeing!

A good deal of the crowd showed up to see Bayonne in the sold-out show. And Bayonne (born Roger Sellers) did not disappoint. He threw himself across his synthesizers, bounded around his drums, and sang intensely into his mic while performing some songs from his debut album, Primitives (released in March via Mom+Pop), and improvising some affecting synth and drum numbers.

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.
