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.
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!
Well here’s a great treat – A Ft. Worth-O-Plex Music Page was kind enough to come to last Friday’s show at the Grotto and get a little video of us on stage!
The song above is a special treat for you, dear fans – it’s a NEW SONG! It’s called “Up To You” and we’ve begun incorporating it into our live set. We’re super proud of it, so give it a listen above! This showcases our tight new four-piece lineup, featuring Steph on guitar, Mandy on bass, Kevin on organ, and Aubrey on drums.
And here’s a classic – it’s “The Robber Barons of 7th Street,” which is the last track on the Drag You Away EP. Featuring, as on the EP, Kevin on the electric ukulele.
Tonight is the night for Doug Funnie‘s Metal Gear Solid mixtape release, so that means you’re gonna want to be at The Grotto (on University just north of West 7th Street in Fort Worth) for our show! It’s us, plus Lindby, plus Bomb Atomic, plus Doug – and it’s cheap at just $5. C’mon and be there! Fun starts at 9:00 – that’s when we play to open the evening.
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!
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:
Holy geez, y’all – do we have an exciting announcement for you! We’re pumped to announce our first live show – on Saturday, December 1st, we’re opening for RoomFour and The Breakfast Machine at The Grotto here in Fort Worth! Yes! RoomFour is a cool Dallas-based indie pop duo and The Breakfast Machine is the kick-ass Arlington-based group that we’ve been fans of for a while now and who recently won “Best Female Vocalist” from the Fort Worth Weekly.
