Unknown Hinson – Luxuriant Sedans
8:00 PM Friday Jul 10, 2015
The UNtold Story of Unknown. While singing his own hilariously politically incorrect songs, Unknown Hinson plays guitar in a style incendiary enough to have Satan himself reaching for the antiperspirant. But don’t dismiss him as a novelty act. He’s one hell of a talent and has the music to prove it!
Looking somewhat like Dracula’s nasty little brother who spent some hard years drinking and working as a carnival barker for a second-rate freak show, Unknown Hinson translates that vibe to his style of country and western-tinged psychobilly. The band is now touring nationwide, wowing audiences with outrageous and campy, white-trash persona and freewheeling, sleazy tone.
Hinson’s most recent CD release, “Live and Undead”, melds weepy twang, searing guitar riffs and lyrics that speak of love-gone-bad. Recorded at a sold-out show, an enthusiastic honky tonk crowd sings along with the King on every song. Raucous, theatrical and over-the-top, Unknown Hinson isn’t just for the trailer park set anymore!
Unknown is gaining international notoriety in the 14-34 demographic as the voice of lead character “Early Cuyler” in the popular show from Cartoon Network – “Squidbillies”. The first four seasons were so well-received that an immediate green light was given to future seasons. Check website for dates and time slots.
Unknown Hinson is an international winner in the Independent Music Awards for his alternative Country track “Torture Town” from the album “Target Practice”.
Unknown Hinson is also a featured artist for Reverend Guitars, representing them in many issues of Guitar Player magazine. A signature Unknown Hinson guitar is currently part of Reverend’s celebrity instrument lineup. Full page interviews and photos of Unknown are in March and April 2012 issues of Guitar Player, and on guitarplayer.comwww.reverendguitars.com
Upon his first performance at Rockabilly Revival, an annual festival in Austin, Tx, Rockabilly Magazine named Unknown Hinson as their “Find of the Year” www.rockabillymagazine.com

Weekly 2015 Best Of the Triad issue: We wouldn’t be able to honor the stellar people, growing businesses, exceptional services and elegant bathrooms without your help. The Triad is exploding with creativity and innovation, and honoring these leaders would not be possible without the support from all of you, the readers of Yes! Weekly.
Tallying up the votes, connecting with business owners, engaging with readers… this is all part of what makes us jubilant when compiling the data that allows us to build this issue. We can’t thank you enough for participating, and we certainly can’t thank you enough for investing your time, money, and energy into the most exciting locations in North Carolina.
Hopefully you’re sitting with a cocktail made by the Triad’s best bartender, or eating a meal prepared at one of the area’s best restaurants, or twirling your hair that was recently styled at the best salon, but either way, we are appreciative that you’re spending your time learning about all the things that make Triad the best place to live. Cheers to the winners and the runners-up, and a special toast to the businesses who did not make the list, but who also keep the vibrant energy palpable.
