Long-time friends and musicians Cory Dennis, Todd Harris and Aaron Miller call their pop and electronic music experiment “Sphynx.”

On its Facebook page, Sphynx compares itself to the band Queen, “but with two Freddie Mercurys and also Phil Collins.”

Sphynx will bring its electro-pop show to town on Sunday, Feb. 2, at the KAFM Radio Room, 1310 Ute Ave. Doors will open at 8:30 p.m., and the show will be at 9 p.m. Tickets cost $7 in advance, or $10 at the door.

Known previously as The El Guapos, the trio “disbanded after three years of packed Austin (Texas) venues, a capacity performance at the 2009 NAMM-SXSW underage showcase and a botched European record deal,” according to

The three friends later reunited as Sphynx, releasing the debut single “Razberry Wine” followed by the debut EP “Human Beast” in February 2011. In a few month’s time, “Human Beast” charted in the top 30 on radio stations in Canada, Alaska, New York, Michigan, Florida, California, Louisiana and Texas, the bio said.

The trio has consistently toured and performed across the United States since late 2011. 

“Sphynx’s energetic and bizarre live show brings together musical elements of punk and glam rock to create a big sound and a live experience worthy of an arena,” the website says.

Joining Sphynx for Sunday’s show are DJ Sobearman and custom lighting provided by Cody Jacobs with Fix Your Face Radio.
