Christopher Anton Saddles Up

This is not Christopher Anton’s first rodeo. By 2009, the California native and lead vocalist had already racked up an impressive string of accomplishments: having his original band signed to a record deal, playing in some of L.A.’s most celebrated venues, like Whisky a Go Go with his Depeche Mode tribute, fronting well-known national touring act Information Society for audiences up to 20,000 strong, and successfully releasing a solo EP. That was also the year he roped fellow musician Donna Jean, made her his wife, traded in his In-N-Out burgers for Whataburgers and made the move to his new wife’s native San Antonio, ultimately ending up in Houston.

It wasn’t until 2018 that Christopher appeared on the Houston tribute scene. By then he was serving as frontman for Speedway – A Live Tribute to Morrissey and The Smiths and performing at venues like The Scout Bar and White Oak Music Hall, all while still releasing original music and criss-crossing the country with acts like A Flock of SeagullsMissing Persons, and Thomas Dolby for the Lost 80s Live tour.

This year, he’s back in the chute with Route 101, a Depeche Mode tribute, fortuitously timed to coincide with Houston’s burgeoning 80s tribute scene. They’ll be making their debut November 2 with Speedway at The Amp Room in San Antonio; hopefully some Houston gigs won’t be far behind.
