A band beating on pots and pans and strumming homemade guitars will take the stage on April 27 at Irving’s Arbor Day Celebration.
The band, Vocal Trash, isn’t just looking for that perfect industrial sound for their music. They’re promoting conservation and recycling with their green-minded shows.
Their shows usually feature a “gas-can guitar,” another guitar with a tool box body, milk-urn bass and PVC pipe drums. Rounding out their sound are homemade shakers, scrappers and clickers— all of which are one of the reasons for the band’s name, Steve Linder, creator and band member of Vocal Trash, said.
About 10 years ago, the group debuted as primarily a musical show before later adding choreography and dance. Their green message came later too, Linder said.
