Triple Crown has a stellar show featuring talented bands playing what used to be called “alternative” back in the day when that meant an alternative to the same old, same old. The Columnists are a local band who should not be for long. They are too good to keep to ourselves. - Newstreamz San Marcos


Playing Pool on a Houseboat EP (2009)



Brothers Patrick and Brandon Sammons team up with long time friend Kyle Kastner and Mark Pillion to form the eclectic folk rock band, The Columnists. It is hard to label the exact sound of this band, but between their catchy hooks and extended jams it is hard not to like them. The band is joined with female vocalist, Mary Otto, whose beautiful voice juxtaposes Patrick's raw vocal approach. Although The Columnists have only been around since the end of June 2009, they have began to developed a following in the San Marcos area.
