In Concert Undermain is a new music streaming series presented by Undermain Theatre. The series showcases North Texas musicians performing live music in the Undermain basement. Their performances are then made available to the public as free, streamable videos on Vimeo. This season, In Concert Undermain features three groups who are near and dear to the Undermain family: Texas Radio Trio kicked off the summer with their set 'Songs of Love and Mayhem from the Public Domain' (ended streaming late July), Caftan's live performance of their debut EP Where You Lead You (streaming now through August 19), and Open Classical's Marbriago Trio will follow with a set of six romantic pieces by Max Bruch (streaming August 19 - September 15).
Texas Radio Trio
Texas Radio Trio is an Americana, folk, and blues band consisting of Undermain Artistic Director Bruce DuBose (guitar, harmonica, vocals), Rob Menzel (guitar, vocals), and Paul Semrad (bass, mandolin, vocals). Their set 'Love and Mayhem' focuses on songs from the public domain that reflect the diversity of American culture.
The five songs on Caftan's forthcoming EP Where You Lead You chart a journey through psychedelic landscapes filled with folk, rock, and Americana. Their meditative lyrics pose questions of loyalty and complacency while challenging listeners to seek answers within themselves. All songs on the EP were co-written by Cory Kosel and Jake Nice and performed In Concert Undermain by Kosel (guitar, vocals), Nice (banjo, guitar, synthesizer, vocals), and Braden Socia (drums).

The Marbriago Trio is made of the three most integral musicians of OC's famous Classical Open Mic: OC Director Mark Landson (viola), Dallas Open Mic host Brent Buemi (clarinet), and all around multi talented piano gymnast Thiago Nascimento (piano).
