As you’ll see in the video, I caught The Royalty‘s show at Padres in Marfa the other week, and then hung out with them after the show.

They offered to give me a tour of their hometown of El Paso, and pointed out some of the city’s lesser-known spots (see below for more on each band member’s picks).

Great band, by the way. Get into them now; it’s sure to give you guaranteed street cred once they hit it big. And they will hit it big.

Just this month, Amazon recently listed them as one of their “Artists on the Rise” and MTV described their sound as “dreamy ’60’s soundscapes and doo-wop harmonies with an aggressively talented female front.”

Dig ‘em… but watch this video first, of course.
