Siblings Tyler and Maggie Heath formed folk rock duo The Oh Hellos in San Marcos, TX and have remained an independent band with five albums, most recently 2017’s Notos. Their lyrical, dramatic sound is joined by a large ensemble of musicians as their backing band. Joined by Wilderness, The Oh Hellos headline the El Rey on Friday, March 30th.
The Weepies are another American indie pop-folk duo of married singer-songwriters Deb Talan and Steve Tannen.
