Music and yoga go together like house beats and nightclubs. That's why the one of the best underground party halls in the Magic City is putting a mediative twist on uhntz-uhntz with Yoga at Trade.

How do you go about naming your band? By looking up to your favorite rockers for inspiration, of course. At least that's how it went down for the Grey 8s. "[Drummer] Andres [Bedoya] and I were thinking of two piece bands we liked. The most obvious ones were the White Stripes and the Black Keys, so we went in the middle," Danny Burns, the band's singer, guitarist, and songwriter explained to New Times earlier this year. And what about the 8? "We liked the infinity symbol, so we flipped it on its side."
