Hot Nut Riveters

Austin's own, the irrepressible, unforgiveable Hot Nut Riveters! From the diabolical mind of Guy Forsyth, the man who brought you the famous (some would say infamous) Asylum Street Spankers, and the somewhat less inventively named but no less infamous Guy Forsyth Band, we proudly present The Hot Nut Riveters - Texas’s Original Recession Era String Band.

Believe it or not, it was over twenty years ago when Guy Forsyth, still wet behind the ears and entirely oblivious to just how crazy an idea it was, started a band who played all acoustic instruments and specialized in a strange and heady homebrew of genre and influences, and promptly began mining the deep, rich veins of American traditional and popular music forms. Call it traditional bluespop folk countrygrass. Wait, no. Call it traditional alt-bluespop folk countrygrass.
