Local rockers Otis the Destroyer are rowdy, riled-up and ready to go. Formed back in 2015 by frontman Taylor Wilkins, the moniker comes from Wilkins’ poorly behaved puppy. The quintet’s first EP was fast and hard, sweat-soaked rock. Their full length sophomore effort, Keep Bashing, loses none of this hammer-hard energy but still showcases their evolving musical palette; in between rowdy-rock tracks we find smatterings of country and psych-punk. The crew brought their sly humor and kinetic energy to Studio 1A ahead of their album release show at Hotel Vegas. Check out the full session below!
