Beto O’Rourke’s Punk Band Blew A Gig To Stick It To ‘Republican Christian’ Host

Published

on

Democrat Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke played bass in a punk rock band called Foss with Cedric Bixler-Zavala, who went on to a career in rock music with other bands.

Bixler-Zavala recalls that Foss intentionally played badly in one gig to stick it to a host who “was a little on the Republican Christian side.” The host allegedly wanted to start an “all-white dude ranch.”

While the “all-white dude ranch” idea would be legitimately racist, assuming it happened, the fact that Bixler-Zavala pointed out the host’s “Republican Christian” viewpoint suggests that O’Rourke’s band was not a fan of these attributes. O’Rourke supports abortion, but the mainstream media is trying to push the narrative that numerous Christians will vote for him.

Cedric Bixler-Zavala recounted his experience with bassist Beto in an interview with Remezcla:

“A side effect of the GOP’s tweets is the renewed attention on the congressman’s old punk band, Foss. The spotlight on the band led many to dig up an old performance of theirs – one of their only publicly available – on a local El Paso cable access show called Let’s Get Real. The clip shows the young band – which included Bixler-Zavala on drums – stalling to start their set, then seemingly fumbling through what can best be described as an art-rock onslaught of distorted noise, much to the chagrin of the buttoned-up host. “We were just taking the piss out of the host,” Bixler-Zavala tells Remezcla over the phone. “The host was a little on the Republican Christian side, and he pulled us aside before taping and told us he wanted to start an all-white dude ranch,” he says, explaining the kind of bigotry they felt from the host and why the band ultimately decided to play around on stage rather than perform one of their actual songs.”
