LIVE SHOW DISPATCH: Whatever else happens, this shall be the FINAL show of the year, because it is mere days before the year ends. What better way to wrap up 2013 than joining us as we perform in DALLAS at the lovely and intimate CITY TAVERN downtown, where we will enjoy GREAT FOOD and GREAT DRINK and GREAT INDIE ROCK sharing the stage with three other fantastic bands – SVENNY BABY, SUNBURNT, and CATERPILLARS. The correct answer is THERE IS NO BETTER WAY to wrap up the year. So please make efforts, Dallas friends, to join us for this blowout time of awesomeness. This show is MERELY $5 and shall begin at 8:00 PM. We shall play at 10:00. Your attendance is requested. THAT IS ALL.
Hey all! We’ve got a show tonight that we’d love to see you at, if you’re around Fort Worth.
At Shipping & Receiving tonight, come see us along with New York band Wild Adriatic and local opener Jacob Furr. It’s going to be a great night of music, and it’s just $5 to get in. Jacob plays at 9:00, Wild Adriatic at 10:00, and us at 11:00.
Shipping & Receiving is at 201 South Calhoun, at the corner of Calhoun & Daggett just east of South Main in the Near Southside. It’s got great drinks, fantastic atmosphere, an excellent sound system, and shuffleboard! See you tonight!
We’ve been talking about this Thursday’s show at the Grotto for a little while, but since our last missive it’s grown and gotten even more exciting. Strap yourselves in and let’s take a look:
We now have FIVE bands. The show starts at 8:00 PM with new opener Lydia’s Libido. They’re fronted by Samantha Newark, none other than the voice of Jem from the cartoon you all watched in the ’80s. They’re followed by Svenny Baby from Alvarado at 9:00. Then, all the way from Los Angeles comes A House for Lions at 10:00. We’re playing at 11:00, and the night finishes up with The Royal Savages at 12:00.
That’s a ton of awesome. Seriously, you need to be there! Thursday at 8:00 at The Grotto – 517 University Drive, just off West 7th Street here in Fort Worth. See you soon!
Heads up! Due to a scheduling situation at the original venue, our show on Thursday the 17th of this month is now at one of our favorite places – The Grotto, at 517 University Drive here in Fort Worth. All else is the same – it’s us headlining, and also features the greatness of Royal Savages, House of Lions (from the UK), and Svenny Baby. Be there!
Hey y’all! We had a GREAT time this last weekend at Shipping & Receiving in Fort Worth and City Tavern in Dallas. Thanks to everybody who came out to see us!
We’ll have more details soon, but we just wanted to let you know that our next show will be on Thursday, October 17, at Lola’s in Fort Worth. We’ll be headlining, and the other bands on the bill are Royal Savages, Svenny Baby, and House of Lions, who are coming all the way from the UK. It should be a blast!
More info to come soon.
It’s a D/FW mini-tour – two shows this week! Show #1: we’re in Fort Worth this Friday, at the brand-new Shipping & Receiving bar just off South Main in the Near Southside. Not only will you be getting us, but you’ll also be getting our BFFs Lindby, making it one heck of a fun night of Fort Worth indie pop/rock. Doors open at 8:00, and guess what – there’s NO COVER! It’s cheap as free! Great excuse to catch our brands of tunes and check out a super-cool new venue. We play first, then Lindby.
Show #2 this week: on Saturday, we’re in Dallas at City Tavern, in the heart of downtown, for a really cool show presented by The Artist Collective. Things kick off with an acoustic set by Robbie Saunders, then it’s us, and the night closes out with the always-awesome Missing Sibling. It’s going to be a great night of indie music right in the heart of Big D! Get there at 9:00 PM. It’s just $5 to get in, and City Tavern has great food and drink!
We’ve been teasing this for a while, and now that the festival has announced it we can reveal it here: this Friday, we’re performing in the Fort Worth Rock Assembly, a huge three-day 30-band festival here in Fort Worth where every band has selected a vintage rock band to cover.
We’re doing The Beach Boys.
So, come on out to J&J Blues Bar this Friday – we’re performing on the inside stage at 6:00 PM. And we’re just one part of this amazing lineup.
Here’s the Facebook event for your RSVP-ing pleasure. It’s $10 for a one day pass, or $25 for all three days.
Really excited about this one – this Saturday, we’re performing at the Live Oak Music Hall for the first time ever! The Live Oak is located on Lipscomb, just north of Magnolia Avenue in Fort Worth’s Near Southside.
Besides being our first time at this swanky venue, we’re part of a great lineup of music for the night – besides us, you’ll also be getting ALAN, We the Sea Lions, and Katsük! Doors open at 8:00 and the show starts at 9:00. The show is ALL AGES – $10 for 21 & up, $15 under 21.
Can’t wait to hit the Live Oak – see you there!
Surprise – we’ve been added to this AWESOME lineup this coming Friday, July 5th, at The Grotto. Fort Worth’s nerdcore rapper extraordinaire, Doug Funnie, is releasing his Metal Gear Solid mixtape, and we’re having a release show.
Head to The Grotto at 9:00 on the 5th to see Doug, along with us, our BFF band Lindby, and the greatness that is Bomb Atomic. It’s going to be EPIC. What’s more, it’s just $5, so get on out to The Grotto next Friday!
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.
