The House Harkonnen keep the Spice flowing

Lauren Shafer
Members of The House Harkonnen - Left to Right: Mike Doty (lead guitar), Alex Johnson (vocals and rhythm guitar), Dave Shafer (bass), and Andy Grayson (drums)

Riding rock n' roll like a "Sandworm," Arlington's The House Harkonnen turn the notion of traditional Texas music on its head.

Taking their name from a faction in Frank Herbert's fictional "Dune" universe, The House Harkonnen embodies elements from punk to classic rock, and reconstitutes them into a gritty rocking sound of their own. Vocalist Alex Johnson recently took some time to check in with Notably Texan, on the verge of their appearance in Dallas on Friday. 

The House Harkonnen performs Friday, June 27 in Dallas at The Boiler Room with Bathylite, Spacebeach & Fogg.

Notably Texan can be heard weekdays from Noon-3pm on KETR.
