The schedule for the 2013 Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards Festival is out, and we’re happy to reveal that we’re a part of it – we’ll be performing at the famed Fred’s Texas Cafe, at 4:00 PM. (We’ll be followed by Mills & Co., Jacob Furr & The Only Road, Kevin Aldridge & The Appraisers, Clint Niosi & The Unaccountable, and Derek Larson & The Leavers.)
Admission is FREE, and the Weekly’s Music Awards compilation CD will be on sale for just $5, with proceeds going to the Tarrant Area Food Bank. The CD features 18 tracks by local artists nominated for awards, including our song “Between Brownstones.”
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!
We had an AWESOME time at SXSW! We played our show, had a blast, met and hung out with some incredible bands, and just generally did it up right. Big thanks to GoGirls Music for having us in their showcase, and a HUGE thanks to Laurel Dagger of San Antonio’s own Mrs. Howl for being our guest drummer – she rocks!

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.

Hey there, fan land! It’s been a little while since we talked, but it’s time to get y’all up to speed on the latest happenings in Diabolical Machinesville. We’ve been working hard on reformulating things with the new lineup, and we’ve got the first fruits of our labor to share:
First, the big news – we’ve put out a new song! It’s called “Artoria,” and you can grab it on our Bandcamp page (name your own price, anywhere from “zero” to “eleventy billion dollars” or anywhere in between) or stream it below:
“Artoria” was written by Steph and features her on guitar and lead vocal, Harley on guitar and backing vocals, and Kevin on electric uke, bass guitar, drum track, and backing vocals. It was recorded in our ad hoc home studio by Kevin and Harley and the production is by Kevin.
Next, we’ve got some shows coming up to tell y’all about! We’ve got three shows currently booked for the spring:
