Big news, fan folks!
- We’ve been nominated for a Fort Worth Weekly Music Award! The ballot comes out on the 15th, at which point we need all of you to vote for us!
- As part of this nomination, we’re appearing on this year’s Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards compilation CD, along with several other nominated bands. We recorded our song today at Eagle Audio Recording in the Near Southside, under the direction of engineer Britt Robisheaux of The Theater Fire.
- AND, we’ve been asked to perform at the Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards festival on Sunday, June 23rd! The exact time & location will be announced later.
These are all big honors and we are very excited to be nominated for an award and asked to participate in all these various things. Big things ahead!
As mentioned above, we recorded our song for the FW Weekly CD today at Eagle Audio. Kevin took some photos of the whole thing (on a combination of an iPhone and a big camera), and we’d like to share ‘em with you:
We’ve got a show tomorrow night (Saturday the 13th)! We’re playing at The Grotto with our pals Lindby and the awesome Missing Sibling. The fun starts at 10:00 PM with Lindby, then us, then Missing Sibling. It’s just $5, so you’d better be there if you like great indie rock! It’s going to be a blast, and there’s some surprises that’ll be happening! So be there! EXCLAMATION MARKS!
The first Cowtown Cleanup Fest was a lot of fun! We had a great time performing and getting to see fellow bands Tim Platt & All That Is Beautiful and Big City Folk. Keep Fort Worth Funky posted the video above, which contains bits of all of our performances.
Another weekend, another show – and this one’s during the day! And it’s outside!
We’re performing in the Cowtown Cleanup Fest, brought to you by the fine folks at Keep Fort Worth Funky in association with the South Hemphill Heights Neighborhood Association. They’re cleaning up their ‘hood tomorrow morning, and then at noon everybody’s gathering in Capps Park (at College & Berry) for a get together with drinks, food, activities, vendors, and of course, live music.
We’re going on first, around 12:30 tomorrow afternoon. Following us will be Big City Folk and Tim Platt & All That Is Beautiful, so it’s a day full of great tunes not to miss. And it’s FREE, and the weather’s supposed to be grand, so why not come on out to Capps Park? We’ll see you tomorrow!
Our next show is coming up this Saturday, and we’re really excited about this one. Everybody’s favorite local radio show The Good Show over on KTCU is putting on another installment of their live music series at Lola’s, and they’re having us open the show. We’re followed by the talented folks of Foxtrot Uniform and headliner Dove Hunter.
The fun starts at 10:00, and it’s all ages – $8 over 21, $10 under 21.
There’s more – Saturday morning, we’ll be in the KTCU studio appearing on The Good Show along with Foxtrot Uniform and Dove Hunter for an interview. Don’t forget to tune in!

More specifically, we’re playing on Saturday (the second day of the showcase), at 6:30 PM. Now, as you all know, we’re currently drummerless, but we’ve solved that problem for the weekend in an awesome way: we’ve got Laurel Dagger from San Antonio punk band Mrs. Howl sitting in on drums for us! It’s going to be a crazy show.

This one caught us a little off-guard, but we’re excited! We just got added to a fun lineup at Lola’s Saloon this Wednesday, March 6th, after another band had to drop out. Our super friends Lindby, us, and Abandon City are hitting the stage starting at 10:00. It’s an all-ages show and just $5 ($9 under 21).
We are very generously being joined by Lindby drummer Logan Bowers for this show, for which we are very appreciative. It’s going to be a fun night, so come on out Wednesday to see us break your hump day blues!
