After announcing their new band Taipei Houston a couple weeks back, Myles and Layne Ulrich played their first gig a few days ago. The two musicians are the sons of legendary Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich.
In the vein of bass-drum duos like Royal Blood and Death From Above 1979, Taipei Houston feature 23-year-old Myles behind the drum kit and 20-year-old Layne on bass and vocals. In a new post on Instagram, the brothers shared clips from their first show, which took place at Alex’s Bar in Anaheim, California.
The footage shows Layne and Myles playing a high-energy brand of rock, with bits of Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, and The MC5 sprinkled throughout.
Lars’ wife, model Jessica Miller, had high praise for her stepsons’ first show, writing, “Long Beach was on fire” in the Instagram comments.
Layne and Myles’ mother is Skylar Satenstein, a doctor to whom Lars was married from 1997 to 2004. The Metallica drummer also has a younger son named Bryce with actress Connie Nielsen, whom he dated from 2004 to 2012.
While sharing the video clips from the Alex’s Bar gig, Tapei Houston also promoted an upcoming set at The Mint in Los Angeles. That show is taking place this Wednesday (September 15th), with a reasonable cover charge of $8.
