Now tonight Two Video, after hearing what happend to the band Two Gallants last weekend in Houston i think it fair to play there music video to see what they sound like.

From Wikipedia

As with The White Stripes, Two Gallants feature a duo of guitar and drums, and their music is rooted in the blues. However, Two Gallants are more influenced by the delta blues and folk music rather than the White Stripes' electric blues, which is based on the music coming out of Chicago and Detroit. Stephens plays bass, melody, and harmony simultaniously in the blues tradition, but with folk fingerpicking. Vogel's percussion is a trap of a hi-hat, a crash cymbal, a ride cymbal, a floor tom, tom, a snare drum, and a bass drum with an even smaller trap for acoustic concerts. His play is melodic rather than rhythmic. Themes to their music are murder, theft, stories of the old west, Antebellum South and racism.

and also playing a short set after the Film is Troy Gregory fronted band the Whitches, but i could not find there video on you tube so i go with Troy Gregory other side project the Step Sister


given the early resume of the group's leader, Troy Gregory. Born in Detroit, Gregory first gained national prominence when he joined Arizona thrash-metalists Flotsam and Jetsam as bassist in 1987, a year after Jason Newsted left the group to join Metallica. In 1991, Gregory left Flotsam and Jetsam and joined New York art-thrash band Prong in time to work on their album Prove You Wrong. Gregory's stay with Prong proved to be short-lived, and after working with the likes of the Swans, Killing Joke, and Simon Bonney, Gregory relocated back to Detroit, where he immersed himself in the local underground music scene. Gregory formed the Witches with a rotating lineup of players from some of Detroit's more notable bands and recorded their first album in 1996, Everything Changes Reality, which sadly was never released.
